Salam Aidil Adha
Both sermons at the Masjid were talking about ritual of sacrifice.
It is to commemmurate the Quranic story of Prophet Abrahim undergoing the ultimate test of faith to carry out Allah's commandment to slaughter his own son, Prophet Ismail.
The morning sermon at our neighbourhood surau was particularly moving and expressed the essence in the meaning of sacrifice.
It was the story of a pious and learned man, who received a dream of being told by Prophet Muhammad that all the pious men and women he knew were not awarded Haj Mabrur, except for a person by the name of Abdullah.
Haj Mabrur is a Haj ibadah that is accepted by Allah.
