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 Steadfast?

While on his way to carry out the sacrifice of his son Ismail, Satan tried to dissuade him multiple times, but he threw stones to vanquish him. This act is commemorated as a ritual in Hajj.

How Can I Be Steadfast Like Prophet Ibrahim? 

Say no to Satan just like Prophet Ibrahim. If you’re feeling too comfortable under the covers at Fajr, remember sleep is a small sacrifice in comparison to what Ibrahim was ready to give away for Allah’s sake. Tempted to gossip about the new neighbor? Not today, Satan.
