Sacrifice your kids

Muslims celebrate Hazrat Ibrahim’s total obedience to Allah, which he showed by his readiness to sacrifice his son when so commanded by Allah. We need to ask ourselves why it is that we are required to celebrate this event.

The answer is that we replicate Hazrat Ibrahim’s actions. But that does not mean we literally sacrifice our children but that when confronted by a choice of doing as Allah commanded even though it means that someone or something dear to us will be hurt or damaged, we follow Allah’s command regardless.
