“Their flesh and their blood reach not Allah, but the devotion/piety from you reaches Him. Thus have we made them subject to you that you may magnify Allah that He has guided you…”
This is the day where, although we enjoy ourselves, we should remember the sacrifice that Hadhrat Ibrahim عليه اسلام made for the sake and pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. It is a day within which many pilgrims have sacrificed their desires, comfort and families to complete one of the pillars of Islam whilst bearing hardship to seek the pleasure of Allah and acquiring closeness to Him.
May Allah allow us to enjoy this day in its true meaning whilst giving us the understanding to realise that this day is about sacrifice for the sake of Allah and not following one’s desires to displease Allah. Aameen.
Eid Mubarak to all the readers.
