It Is All About Letting Go Of Your Most Precious Things
Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice everything for God is honoured on this day. He was ready to sacrifice his son, Ismael, in the path of Allah. As Allah was pleased with Abraham's sincerity and sacrificial gesture, he replaced his son with a ram to be sacrificed instead.
A Muslim must meet the Islamic guidelines of slaughtering the animal and the slaughterer must make a profound cut into the animal's neck, which disjoins the jugular veins and carotid arteries.
