Baba F. Trawally, Amir Ahmadiyya Jama’at in The Gambia has said Islam requires true sacrifice from Muslim and that is what has been shown to them by Allah Almighty’s Greatest Messenger and Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (SAW).

According to his Eid-Ul-Adha message made available he said: “The Holy Quran has testified to this as it says: ‘My prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the Words’ (Ch.6:163).”

He added: “Therefore, as followers (Muslims) of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustapha (SAW) it behooves us to endeavor to offer such lofty sacrifices which are unassailable for the sake of Allah, Almighty. It is only then that we will be counted as true followers (Muslims) of that Prophet of Allah Almighty.”

According to him, the entire purpose of commemorating the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS), and his family is to attain nearness to Allah, Almighty. This should therefore always be kept in view, in whatever we do.

“Explaining this point further, the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi (AS), the founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at writes: “The word Qurbani, or sacrifice, is taken from qurb, which means nearness, and this alludes to the fact that the nearness of God is attained when all the desires and passions of the flesh are slain.” (The Honour of Prophets, p. 17),” he told worshipers on Saturday.
