Through the Gracious Mercy and Infinite Blessings of our Allah Most High, we have once again been offered the opportunity to witness and experience the blessed days of Hajj and Qurbani (Sacrifice).
In both the actions of Hajj and Qurbani, we are asked to emulate and commemorate the actions of the Prophet Ibraheem (Peace be upon him). Annually, we dutifully emulate these actions, but do we ponder and reflect over the lessons behind these actions? Do we utilize this opportunity to introspect and ask ourselves the question: “What does the life of Ibraheem (Peace be upon him) teach me? How can I utilize the action of Qurbani as a stepping stone to greater spirituality, as an opportunity to achieve greater closeness to my Creator?
