“It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches God: what reaches Him is your piety. Thus He has made them subject to you, so that you may glorify God for having guided you. And give good news to those who do their best at whatever they do.”
~ Holy Quran 22:37 (Safi Kaskas)
In this week’s sohbet, I discuss Eid al-Adha and what constitutes “sacrifice” or an offering to God within the Abrahamic traditions.
A couple of clarifications I would like to make to my sohbet;
i). When I said “Midians” I was thinking of the “Mandaeans”.
ii). The account of Abraham (AS) and the Idol Shop is found in the Midrash within Judaism.
Followed by the traditional weekly dhikr/meditation of the Naqshbandi tariqat.
