SPOT OF SACRIFICE
syedna IBRAHEEM A.S laid down his son syedna
ISMAEL to sacrifice his life in
the way of Almighty Allah.
The prophet Ibraheem A.S
saw in a dream that Alimighty Allah had asked him to
sacrifice the life of his beloved son syedna Ismaeal in the way of Allah
subhan-o-talla. Syedna Ismael A.S , the noble and great prophet of
Allah knew that the dream of a prophet is always true and it is in
fact the commandment of Almighty Allah.
When syedna Ibraheem A.S put his dream in front of his son
syedna Ismeal A.S who was also Allahs' messanger , he suggested his
father to fulfill Allahs' commandment at once and he further said
that you would not find me hesitant in this trail.
When syedna Ibraheem
passing through MINNA plain satin tried to
deceive both of them but both the Allahs' prophets remained firm in
their intention and satin bacame failed in his bad intention. Now a
days three walls [previously pillars] are made in Minna
exactly on those spots where satin tried to mislead the both the
prophets and pilgrims throw pebbles over them on eve of Haj showing
syedna Ismael A.S reached on a mount in MINNA and the
father laid his son on the mount and closed his eyes before using knife
on the throat of his beloved son. As soon as syedna Ibraheem A.S
put sharp knife on the throat of his son , Almighty Allah removed
syedna Ismeal A.S under the knife and replaced
a sheep .when Syedna Ibraheem A.S opened his eyes with the painful
thinking that his beloved son had been sacrificed, he became joyful to
see syeda Ismael A.S. safe and sound , without any wound.
Red squre indicating the exact
spot of sacrifice and tents of pilgroms in Minna
are clearly visible.
In fact the Almighty Allah only wanted to judge the sincerity of
their two prophets .Almighty Allah liked this action of syedna Ibraheam
A.S and syedna Ismael A.S very much and ordered to repeat
contineously this historic spritual event every year on 10th of
zilhijha to memories such a big spritual event of human history.
Due to this sacrifice syedna Ibraheen A.S is called KHLEEL -ULLAH
and syedna Ismael
who was tried to sacrifice in the way of Allah]
The exact spot of sacrifice is still present on a mount in Minna and in
old books it is written thay a small masjid named Masjid-e-Kabash was
there. In arabic KABASH means SHEEP. But now only a small
dome or monument is there as you see in the picture.
See tents in Mina plain and
place of spritual sacrifice in RED SQUARE on a
Mount in Mina.
It is really very pricious and rare to see such spot because the
saudi administration never guides pilgrims to reach such spot but it is
near to PILGRIMS TENTS NEAR TO JUMRAT [where sattin are stonned by
