First off, happy Eid-el-Kabir to every Muslim man or woman out there. Wish y’all the best!

Eid al-Adha, or the “Feast of Sacrifice,” signifies the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim, known as Abraham in Christianity and Judaisim, to sacrifice his son, Ismail as ordered by Allah. It is one of Islam’s most important holidays.

A Muslim friend once said and I quote

“Eid-el-Kabir is very significant in the life of every Muslim due to the virtues and values that it conveys. The celebration of Eid-el-Kabir reminds us of the loving provision and sacrifice of Almighty Allah which has continued to sustain humanity”.

Alright now let’s talk about it from the Bible perspective. “The Binding of Isaac”.

The Binding of Isaac is a story from the Christian Bible found in Genesis 22. In the biblical narrative, God tells Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, on Moriah. Abraham begins to comply, when a messenger from God interrupts him. Abraham then sees a ram and sacrifices it instead.

This is what happens in Genesis 22. God tells Abraham: “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.”

Now let’s compare the two narratives from the Muslim Qur’an and Christian Bible. The Qur’an said it was Ishmael, while the Bible said it was Isaac.

The question for is,

Which Account Is Accurate – The Bible or Qur’an? Was It Ishmael or Isaac?

Let’s hear from you all.
