What had been significance of Eid al Adha from Imam Khomeini’s viewpoint?

According to Imam Khomeini, this leader of monotheism (tawheed), the great iconoclast (Ibrahim), taught us that offerings sacrifice for the sake of Allah, aside from monotheistic and religious considerations, also has political dimensions and social values.

He taught us to offer our most cherished possessions for religion and the establishment of divine justice. He fostered understanding in Adam’s progeny that Makkah and Madinah were the places of sacrifice by all devotees of religion, places for the promulgation of monotheism and for the rejection of blasphemy.
