    To put God's will above all else. The ultimate test. He slaughtered a sheep instead. poor sheep

    Now you see (the other postres) when the Muslims slaughter a sheep on Eid al Adha, it is to be distributed to the needy.

    By the way laila, tell me if this is true. Someone told me that in some Muslim traditions, when a member of the family dies, the missing person's portion of food is still prepared but given to a needy person. Have you heard of such a thing ?

    I see. I had found the story of the food quite beautiful and wanted to know more. I'll find out one day. The curious atheist that I am .

    The goat version sounds good too

    There are different interpretations, but some believe it was a symbolic test that pointed toward the sacrifice of God's Son, Christ; that Abram/Abraham proved his lineage worthy of being the lineage of the Redeemer by his faith exhibited in that test.

    Thank you. very interesting interpretation.

    It is interesting to note also that in the Sufi interpretation of the sacrifice of Isaac it is said that the child symbolises the soul. For them the sacrifice of Isaac therefore become the sacrifice of the self, in otherwords, the ego.
