It was on the occasion of the first and only Hajj performed by the beloved Prophet (PBUH) of Allah, when the verse below was revealed:

“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as your religion.” [al Maa’idah 5:3].

As the day of Eid Ul Adha approaches, we remember the sacrifice of our father, Hazrat Ibrahim (AS). Allah SWT mentions the sacrifice of lbrahim and Ismail (AS) in the Quran:

“And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice, And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations. [As-Saaffaat, 107-108]

The sacrifice of Ibrahim (AS) is sent down to this Ummah as an example for us to learn from – particularly in times like these, where our Ummah is suffering from a lack of sacrifice. When our Prophet Muhammad
described a time when “the people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish”, he stated that our Ummah would be “numerous at that time”, but that we would have “love of the world and dislike of death” – or, in other words, we would not be willing to sacrifice our dunya for the sake of Allah SWT.

The story of Ibrahim (AS) should make us all reflect on our own sacrifces for the people of Gaza and for our Ummah – what can we do to break this love of dunya and dislike of death?

The one who sacrifices and follows the path of Ibrahim (AS) with the same conviction and submission to Allah will find no difficulty in his path.
