Lesson to learn!

1 post in this topic

"When his Lord said to him, "Submit (your will to Islam)!" He said, "I have submitted myself to the Lord of the Worlds." (Quran 2:131) "

"And, when he (his son) was old enough to walk with him, he said: "O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you (offer you in sacrifice to Allah), so look what you think!" He said: "O my father! Do that which you are commanded, Inshaa' Allah (if Allah will), you shall find me of the patient." (37:102).

Immediately when Allah Instructed His Prophet Ibraheem blessing and peace be upon him to submit / surrender himself to Allah, in other words, entrust the steering of himself, soul, affairs with Allah, without any hesitation, he replied, I submit myself to the Lord of the Worlds. It was then only normal to implement the Divine Command of slaughtering his own son, but what is even more important is the son's position who did not hesitate for a moment to encourage his father thereto.

Each year during this time, I keep pondering and reflecting on this very very touching story and marvelous lesson which we should take as beacon to our lives. Allahum to You I surrender and submit myself, O Allah Assist me for it.
