Whether it’s the rituals of Hajj or the sacrifices we carry out on Eid Al-Adha, these days of Dhul-Hijjah remind us of the enduring legacy of our great Prophet Ibrahim. Join us as we learn from his awe-inspiring and timeless qualities and strive to become tenacious believers like Ibrahim (A).

قَدْ كَانَتْ لَكُمْ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌۭ فِىٓ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ “You already have an excellent example in Ibrahim” (60:4)

How was Prophet Ibrahim Always Ready to Sacrifice?

After being commanded to sacrifice his precious son, he was prepared to do so with Ismail’s full consent only for the pleasure of Allah. Allah then rewarded his intention by replacing the sacrifice of Ismail with an animal instead. 

How Can I Be Ready to Sacrifice Like Prophet Ibrahim?

Sacrificing for the sake of Allah is the best way to show your commitment to Him. Sacrifice an animal on Eid Al-Adha with your personal savings with charities like Mercy Without Limits. Sacrifice food for the day by fasting on the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah to have last and next year’s sins forgiven.
