 (THE QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN)

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, on this occasion of Eid ul-Adha in commemoration of the great faith and courage exhibited by our great-grand father in Islam – Prophet Ibrahim (A.S), I greet you all with the greetings recommended by the Almighty Allah Himself; it is the greetings of the Faithful, the Prophets and Messengers of Allah, and also the greetings of the people of Paradise, which is Assalamu alaikum Wa-rahmatul Laahi Ta-allaah Wa-barakatuhuu, meaning, “may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all”. 

All praises is due to Allah who created man in the best of creation and ordered him to spend out of the bounties bestowed upon him and to strive hard with all his might, his wealth and knowledge in the course of Allah. I pray for the perpetual Peace and Blessings of Allah to bear upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and his household.

 Eid ul-Adha is undoubtedly a remarkable mile stone in our Deen, not only for annual celebration, but also to serve as a lesson and to guide us in our daily lives to be successful. Indeed, the conduct of Prophet Ibrahim was a shining example for believers in Allah and in the Last day. What can be more challenging than being asked to sacrifices one’s hard earned beloved son, after being childless till old age? It was a great test, but Prophet Ibrahim went through the great test, with distinction, together with his family. This earned him the name “Khalilul Laahi” (the friend of Allah). Allah says in the Holy Quran, 3:125. “Who can better be in the Deen than the one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good deeds, and follows the way of Ibrahim, the true in faith? For Allah did take Ibrahim for a friend”.
