The Story of Prophet Abraham’s Sacrifice in The Quran

Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha to commemorate the sacrifice made by Prophet Abraham (AS). The Quran mentions the incident wherein Allah SWT ordained Prophet Abraham (AS) to sacrifice his son, Hz Ishmael (AS). Both the father and the son were unrelenting in their love for Allah, and Hz Ishmael (AS) himself urged his father to go ahead with the sacrifice.

This, of course, was a test of Abraham’s faith by Allah — and indeed, Prophet Abraham (AS) passed the test. As such, it was at the last moment that Allah ordered Hz Ishmael (AS) to be replaced by a lamb, and thus began the Islamic tradition of sacrifice, which is continuing even to this day, Alhamdulillah.

In The Quran, Allah SWT narrates the incident of Prophet Abraham (AS)’s willingness to perform the ultimate sacrifice — that of his own son — in Surah as-Saffat.
