    Image result for abraham's sacrifice for hajj

    The 10th day of Dhu'l Hijjah in the Lunar calendar is the day of Hajj - Eid al-Ad'ha -- when the pilgrims in Makkah sacrifice halal animals following one of the oldest traditions of mankind, dating back to the time of Prophet Ibrahim (Peace Be Upon Him) Soon after the child was born, he was commanded by Allah to settle the infant with his mother Hajera (Peace be Upon Her) in the valley of Makkah. After some years, as the Qur'an says, "And when his son was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice you. So look, what thinkest thou?" To this question, Ismael (Peace Be Upon Him), then only a young boy, replied, "O my father! Do that which you are commanded. Allah willing, you shall find me of the steadfast." (37:102)What a remarkable reply from the son of Ibrahim (Peace be Upon Him)! Like the Rock of Gibraltar, Ismael (Peace Be Upon Him) said that he was ready to be sacrificed. It is probably this characteristic which earned him the title 'the forbearing son'. The Qur'an continues the story, "Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face, We called unto him: O Abraham: You have already fulfilled the vision. Lo! Thus do We reward the good. Lo! That verily was a clear test. Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim." (37:103-107)

    Lyrical Nourishment

    Lyrical Nourishment is a platform for poets, songs writers and artists that desire to express themselves in a meaningful way. Authentic expression has been nonexistent in our modern world; a world where humanity is at the apex of individualism. There is a great global shift taking place and the human family is beginning to realize the importance and the significance of spirituality in the arts. Poetry, one of the oldest art mediums- is a very effective way to reflect, express, and communicate globally.
