There is a historical fact hidden behind this Islamic festival, in which there is such a story of sacrifice, which makes the heart tremble only after hearing it. It is about Hazrat Ibrahim who is considered to be the servant of Allah, who is worshiped as a prophet. Those who have been given the status of Allah by every Islamic, the person who was awarded with this position was tested by God himself.
The matter is something like this: God ordered Hazrat Muhammad to take the test, that he would be happy only when Hazrat sacrifices his dearest loved one in front of Allah. Then Hazrat Ibrahim decided after thinking for sometime and decided to sacrifice his loved one. Everyone wanted to know that what are the things that Hazrat Ibrahim is most fond of, which he is going to sacrifice today. Then he came to know that that priceless thing is his son Hazrat Ismail, whom he is going to sacrifice for Allah today. Knowing this, everyone was shocked. The time of sacrifice has come near. The son was prepared for this, but it was not so easy. To pay this sacrifice, therefore Hazrat Ibrahim blindfolded his eyes and sacrificed his son. When he removed the blindfold, he saw his son safe. In his place, Allah accepted the sacrifice of Abraham’s beloved goat. Pleased with this gesture of sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim, Allah spared the life of his child and in its place the sacrifice of a goat was accepted.
Since then, this scene of sacrifice is going on, which is known to the world as Bakrid Eid-ul-Zuha.
