Whether it’s the rituals of Hajj or the sacrifices we carry out on Eid Al-Adha, these days of Dhul-Hijjah remind us of the enduring legacy of our great Prophet Ibrahim. Join us as we learn from his awe-inspiring and timeless qualities and strive to become tenacious believers like Ibrahim (A).
How was Prophet Ibrahim a visionary?
Prophet Ibrahim constructed the Kaba and instituted the rites of Hajj which we practice till this day. He prayed for future generations to be good Muslims and for his descendants to be nourished and protected by Allah.
رَّبَّنَا إِنِّي أَسْكَنتُ مِن ذُرِّيَّتِي بِوَادٍ غَيْرِ ذِي زَرْعٍ عِندَ بَيْتِكَ الْمُحَرَّمِ رَبَّنَا لِيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ
“O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in an uncultivable valley by Your Sacred House in order, O our Lord, that they may perform As-Salat.” (14:37)
رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
“Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book and the Wisdom, and purify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.” (2:129)
