The feast of sacrifice
The true spirit of Eid-e-Qurban is above and beyond just slaughtering animals. It is a day of remembrance of the obedience of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and the reverence of Hazrat Ismael (A.S), who had set an extraordinary example of sacrifice and selflessness. Islam regarded this act of submission to Allah Almighty, which we term as Sunnah-e-Ibrahimi, an obligatory practice for the affluent Muslims. The sacrifice rendered by people enlivens a society and the nation. This is the basic lesson behind the act of sacrifice. One must understand the revered act of sacrifice and devote themselves to real objectives of sacrifice that will promote harmony, brotherhood, tolerance and equilibrium in the society.
May Allah accept our sacrifice and keep everyone safe from this pandemic Ameen
