"It is not their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is your Taqwa that reaches Him." (Surah Hajj)

Ibraheem (Alayhis Salaam) had two alternatives: either to follow the cry of his heart or to submit to the call of his Creator. He chose to submit.

At every stage during this long and heart-rending struggle between truth and falsehood, Ibrahim (Alayhis Salaam) displayed the fortitude of a devout and obedient slave of Allâh who braved the unending flow of oppression and terror.

Once again people are preparing to observe the great occasion of Eid-ul-Adha and Qurbani. Many have already even booked animals from farmers.

Nevertheless, several complaints have been received, some of them from non-Muslim farmers, that many people who purchased animals for last year's Qurbani have not yet settled their accounts. One non-Muslim farmer even threatened to go to the press to highlight his plight.

Hazrath Anas bin Malik (R.A.) narrates that he heard the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saying: “A person who in all sincerity is constant in his salaah with jama’ah for forty days, without missing the first takbeer, receives two awards: one for deliverance from Hell and the other for freedom from nifaaq.”
