Soon there will be much bloodshed all around the globe. Rivers of blood will flow as millions of animals are sacrificed on the occasion of Eidul Adha, in commemoration of the great sacrifice of Sayyiduna Ebrahim (alaihis salaam). Upon receiving the command to slaughter his beloved son, he unhesitatingly set out to fulfil the Divine order. When he proved his total submission and placed the knife on the throat of the little child, Allah Ta’ala saved the child and sent a sheep from Jannah to be slaughtered in its place. The slaughter of millions of animals on the occasion of Eidul Adha is a remembrance of the total submission of Sayyiduna Ebrahim (alaihi salaam) and is a means of rekindling the spark of sacrifice within us.

The tenth of Muharram is a very virtuous day. It is the Day of Aashura. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) fasted on this day and encouraged the Ummah to do so. It is also encouraged to be generous on one’s family on the day of Aashura. This is a means of great barakah.
