Eid-Ul-Azha


The custom of sacrificing halal animals
On the day of Eid-Ul-Azha
Derives from a fact of
Prophet Abraham and Prophet Ismael
Which is known to many people
Across the globe.

God can take away from you
Any time He wants
Your parents, your brothers and sisters
Your children and your friends
He can even torture them to death
Before your very nose

God is kinder and crueler
Than human beings
Although His kindness
Is many times more
Than His cruelty

That’s why
We should sacrifice halal animals
In order to please Him
On the day of Eid-Ul-Azha.
