“Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji’oon”
Yeah, sure we say this statement when someone dies.Also some of us may say this sentence when they lose something, suffer a setback or harm. But………..do you know what it means?
Sure, everyone know that it obviously means ‘To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.’
But that’s not what I am talking about.
I mean ….do you REALLY, TRULY understand these words and their implications in a Muslim’s life?
It means …whatever we have is not really ours. It belongs to Allah

‘Eid ul-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) is a wonderful time for Muslims. It commemorates the obedience of Prophet Abraham (upon him be peace) to Allah (God) where he and son were tested by the command to sacrifice Ismael, and passed the test which actually saved his son, who was replaced by a ram.
