He said, Prophet Ibrahim A.S was able to sacrifice his son, Allah replaced Prophet Ismail A.S with a sheep, thus, sparing his life, that is why Muslims remember this momentous event by sacrificing a sheep, camel, cow, or goat, and sharing the meat from the sacrifice to others, especially the poor, he added.

EID MUBARAK, to Sahil Online readers. May Allah swt , on the day of great Ibrahimi sacrifices, rewardÂ Â happiness and unity in Ummah. Strong message of Islam is sharing and caring. Let us pray to almighty and work towards achieving this goal.
I think few thing which most of us can do should consider doing this week.
- Visit hospitals to spent few moments with elders and ill to share and care of their pain
- Visiting to jails once in while is a good deed, I this can give few moments of joy in the life of those unfortunate away from their families and society. A lesson for us to be careful and thnqks giving to Allah almighty for a free environment.
- Visit elders and poorer section of society to share and show solidarity.
Â This is message of Eid, and while we enjoy sweets moments, we also care for others.
