Sacrifice in islam

Sacrifice in Islam

  • Verses from Quran about sacrifice:

    [37.101-108] So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing forbearance. And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones. So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead, And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim! You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good: Most surely this is a manifest trial. And We ransomed him with a Feat sacrifice. And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations. [108.2] Therefore pray to your Lord and make a sacrifice.

  • Prophet Mohammed(pbuh) tells us to make sacrifice as Prophet Abraham(pbuh) did.
