Eid Al-Adha is the festival of sacrifice that commemorates the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail out of obedience to Allah. Share the story and make this craft with your children as a way to help them remember that this Eid is not only about celebrating, it’s about commemorating an amazing event that occurred a very long time ago whose lesson is still as relevant today as it was then: obedience to Allah requires sacrifice and garners reward.
