Hz. İbrahim Aleyhisselam does not have any children. This great prophet, who has reached the age of eighty-six, asks Allah for a pure son who will continue his cause and offspring (family) from the Almighty. And in the meantime, he says to God, “If you give me a son, I will sacrifice him”. Our Almighty Lord, Hz. He bestows a son to Ibrahim Aleyhisselam. They named this child as Prophet Abraham (pbuh) and our mother Hagar, Ismail.

Abraham: “Why would I strangle my child?”
Satan : “You think that Allah has ordered you to do this and you say it!” said.
Abraham: “If Allah has ordered me to do this, I find it appropriate to submit to Allah and fulfill his order!” said.
Satan : “By God, I think: Satan ordered you to come to you in your dream and slaughter your son. You are going to strangle him!” said.
Ibrahim Aleyhisselamrealized that he was the devil: “O enemy of Allah! By Allah, I will definitely fulfill Allah’s order in that valley!” said.

Hz. Our Valide Hacer: “The water took us from the valley to gather wood.”
Satan: “He only took Ishmael to strangle him!”
Hz. Our Valide Hacer: “How can you think that a father can strangle his child?! No! It is not so. He is very compassionate towards his son!” said.
Satan: “He says and thinks that Allah ordered him to do this!” said.
Hz. Our Valide Hacer: “If his Lord has ordered this, it is necessary to submit to Allah’s order! Wherever he is, it is better for him to submit to God, to fulfill God’s command!” said.
Satan returned, angry that he could not do anything to Abraham and his household. All of them were united in listening to God’s command and obeying him.
Prophet Ibrahim’s Statement of Prophet Ismail and His Response
Abraham Aleyhis Salam, sebir valleyWhen he was alone with his son Ismail, he said to him:
Ibrahim Aleyhisselam: “My son! I saw you strangling you in my dream!” He informed him of what had been commanded.
Ismail Aleyhisselam: “Daddy! Do as you are ordered! I hope you will find me among those who are patient! Obey the order of Allah! Every good deed is subject to the command of its Lord!” After he said, “Did you report this to my mother? ‘ he asked his father.
Ibrahim Aleyhisselam: “No! I didn’t report!” said. Upon this
Ismail Aleyhisselam: “You did well not to report it.” said. Then: “Daddy! When you want to strangle me, tie me tight with a rope so that something hits me against you and my reward is not less! Because death is very hard and difficult. I’m not sure I won’t flutter when I feel the blade touch my skin! Sharpen your knife, sharpen it, and smash it right into my throat so that it kills me quickly! Let me rest in peace!” said and added.
Ismail Aleyhisselam: “Besides, when you are going to lay me down to strangle me, lay down and bring my forehead to the ground. Don’t lay it on my side. Because I am afraid that when I look at your face, he may come to rikka and prevent you from fulfilling the order that Allah has ordered you about me!”
“If you see fit to take my shirt and give it to my mother, do so! Maybe that will be a consolation for him. Entertain your heart with it!” said.
Ibrahim Aleyhisselam: “My son! How well have you helped me regarding what Allah has commanded!” said.
Sacrifice of Prophet Ismail
Hz. Abraham’s Preparation of His Son for Sacrifice
After this speech, Prophet Ibrahim tied him tightly as his son wanted. He sharpened the knife well. Then she laid him face down! He avoided looking at her face. When the knife of Ibrahim Aleyhisselam pressed down on Ismail Aleyhisselam’s throat, it was as if the knife encountered a copper plate! The mouth of the big knife did not cut the throat of İsmail Aleyhisselam! Ibrahim Aleyhisselam sharpened the knife with the wrist stone two or three times. But he was not able to cut the knife every time. “After all, this work is from Allah!” said. The blade of the knife in Ibrahim’s hand was reversed. At that time, by Almighty Allah:
“O Abraham! You showed loyalty to your dream! Here is the sacrificial sacrificial you slay for your son! Throat him!”
commanded. When Ibrahim Aleyhisselam sat up and looked Gabriel Beside him, he saw a big-horned ram or a large mountain goat standing in front of him.
Ibrahim Aleyhisselam: “Get up, baby! A ransom has been paid for you!” said. That goat is there, MinaHe sacrificed. It is rumored that this goat came down from the mountain of Sebir as well as a beautiful ram with big horns.
***Ismail Aleyhisselama, two horns of the ram sent as ransom by Allah and sacrificed KaabaIn , it hung for a long time and the Kaaba was Abdullah b. When it was burned in the time of Zubayr and Haccac, it was also burned.
The Situation of Prophet Abraham While Sacrificing His Son
Hz. Ibrahim lays his son Ismail on his forehead. He will sacrifice. Of course, his inner world is bitter and suffering, but he submits to the decision. Prophet Abraham will steal the knife to a thin piece of meat, but my Lord has removed the power to cut from the knife. The blade goes through his neck like a cotton ball. Hazrat Ibrahim passes out, Hazrat Ismail passes out. The knife goes off. Hazrat Ibrahim, the Almighty God’s Khalil (friend) says “cut” to the knife, but Halik (the Supreme Creator) says “do not cut”. What knife can cut it? Of course, fire burns, but if Almighty Allah says don’t burn, what kind of fire can burn Prophet Ibrahim? Here it is the same. The Supreme Power, who sets the rules, replaces those rules (Sunnatullah) with other rules. The power is His, the power is His, the property is His, the property is His, the word is His, the pen is His, the power is His, the ruling is His. To speak against someone’s place, to speak a word, to bandage the wound with a great sacrifice.
The Essence of the Story
The Quran informs us that a great sacrifice (sacrifice) was given to Prophet Abraham. We have always talked about the determination and self-sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim and the surrender of Hazrat I-Ismail, but for some reason, we always missed the fact that Almighty Allah did not cut down Hadrat Ismail. The vast mercy of Almighty Allah. The Lord, who tests a father by strangling his child, finally takes the father out of this heavy test. To grant him the grace of his child, not to have him strangled. Not to contaminate your son’s blood with your father’s hand. More merciful than the father. Then he gave prophethood to that boy (Hazrat Ismail) who surrendered to the Lord and made him the grandfather of the Prophet Muhammad (saas). Talking about the devoted father, the devoted father and the son who trusts, we unfortunately say, “How little do we talk about Allah, who is abundant in mercy. We always ignore that all we have is the result of His merciful touch, how can we appreciate the blessing of the Lord without knowing the Lord properly. He cannot understand either Hazrat Ibrahim, who is Khalil, or Hazrat Ismail, who is Halim, without fully surrendering to the Supreme Lord.
Our father, Mr. While the circumcision of Ibrahim was slaughtering the sacrifice, Hz. The Prophet (saas) has always said this since the second year of Hijrah. “This is your father. Ibrahim’s circumcision is the custom. For this reason, in Eid-al-Adha, k urban vacip or muekked (strong) circumcision was accepted. Sacrifice is an act of worship for every Muslim, without torturing animals in accordance with the law. This should not be neglected.
May Allah accept your sacrifices and make your intentions for Allah. For, not the flesh and blood of the sacrificed victim, but your taqwa-filled intentions go to Almighty Allah.
