Eid Al-Adha '13.
Happy Eid Al -Adha , everyone.
I hope you all doing great and enjoying the festival to the fullest :).
As we all know, Eid Al-Adha is all about sacrifice. Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was commanded by God to sacrifice his adult son, Ismaeel. He was true submitter, true worshiper of God, who could not say no to this command. God loved his obedience, and at the time of sacrifice, he gave him a ram in place of his son.
Muslims all around the world follow this sunnah (act) of prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) and offer up an animal (goat, ram, sheep, and camel) on 10th of zil Hajj.
But, is this all about following a sunnah?
There is, of course some wisdom behind it. As a learner, am I figuring out.
Have you ever sacrifice anything in your life for someone you love so much ?
