Eid ul Adha Greetings - November 2010

Learn to read Al Qur'an

The Great Sacrifice by Prophet Ibrahim,
The Great Messenger of Almighty GOD,
Unanimously accepted as Patriarch of
Jews, Christians and Muslims
Occupies an esteemed status in the
Last Testament, The Holy Qur’an.
From many verses, two are mentioned here.


According to Chapter 2 verse 124:
“…………. Almighty GOD said: O Ibrahim, I am going to make you leader (‘Imam’ ) of the mankind ……...”
And in chapter 16 verse 123

“And WE revealed to you O Mohammed (s.a.w.s) , follow the Doctrine of Ibrahim who was steadfast, true in faith, highly virtuous, aloof from all false-beliefs …”

From the darkness of human sacrifices to the light of sacrificing domestic animals
The Great Sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim teaches us
To be ever-ready to sacrifice our lust, anger, pride, jealousy,
Inhuman thoughts, Urge of revenge, greed, craving, vengeance,
False desires, unjust demands, bad habits
only to avoid wrath of our LORD
Who is The LORD of the UNIVERSE
And be rewarded in endless final and eternal phase of our life to come.


May such sacrifices be accepted by the Almighty ALLAH
Along with symbolic ones
So that we, our relatives and the destitute can consume
And extol the Glory of our LORD,
LORD of all that exist.


Happy Eid
