We congratulate and confirm our next Eid-al-Adha. May it bring peace, happiness and bliss to our country, the Islamic world and all humanity…
Two words expressing closeness in Islamic literature; carib, scorpion… While carib expresses the close meaning, scorpion expresses the closest, which is his side. We see that these two words are used in the relationship of the servant Allah. We use the word -akreb- when describing the infinite closeness of Allah to his servant. We say that Allah has a scorpion to His servant. Let’s talk about Akrebiyet-i Divine.
We use the word -karib- when talking about the closeness of the servant to Allah. We will put Qurbiyyet-i ademiyye into consideration. The root of the word is kurb; means proximity. Karib is the one who is close, and KUBAN is the name that symbolizes that closeness and is attributed to all those who were sacrificed.
Prophets; they did not have any expectations in return for their duty of preaching. They devoted themselves to their Lord and sacrificed in the message.
Companions; They were with the Prophet with both their wealth and their lives, renewing their allegiance willingly under all difficult conditions, and said, “Ebi, illiterate, self-sabotage, O Rasulallah…”. They have been sacrificed in siddiqyyyah.
Martyrs; they went to death laughing for their homeland, nation, religion, state, everything that is sacred. While drinking the sherbet of martyrdom, Allah, the Latif, never makes you feel the pain of death as the first grace and offering to that sacrifice. And he warns us with his verses. “Do not call those who are killed in the way of Allah ‘dead’. Rather, they are alive, but you do not know. (Surat al-Baqara 154)”
“Even an animal laid to be slaughtered does not feel anything. He only wants to feel when the knife cuts; However, even that feeling goes away, it also gets rid of that pain.” There is such a work of mercy even for an animal that sacrifices its life.
“It is not far from the endless mercy of the Most Merciful, how he gives the rank of martyrdom to a soldier who perished in his struggle for the sake of duty, and rewards a sheep slaughtered as a sacrifice by giving a bodily remnant in the hereafter to its owner on the Sirat, with the rank of a mount like a burak.”
The righteous; They took the righteousness, which is the absolute result of faith, as their basis, continued their lives without sacrificing the Sunnah, sacrificing their feelings, enthusiasm and souls for this, and lived in the life of the heart and soul.
It is because of that; In verse 69﴿ of Surat an-Nisa, “Whoever obeys Allah and the Prophet, they are with the prophets, the righteous, the martyrs and the righteous, whom Allah has blessed; what wonderful friends they are!” Allah Almighty commands…
Here is the victim; this is the most obvious example of closeness and togetherness. Because you are included in those who sacrifice themselves to God with your sacrifice.
Victim; It tells us about submission to Allah… The sacrifices we sacrificed as a duty inherited from Abraham (pbuh) and became a separate indicator of our closeness to Allah. Allah (swt) He ordered Abraham (pbuh) to sacrifice his son, that is, he passed a difficult test.
Father and son passed this test with complete surrender. As a reward for this surrender of the family of Ibrahim, Allah Almighty rewarded Hz. He forgave Ismail (as) and allowed a ram to be sacrificed instead. It was a feast for the believers that they came out of this test of servitude with dignity. A table of sacrifice and feast has been opened.
It should also be known that; In the 37th verse of the chapter of Hajj, “Of course, their flesh and blood will not reach Allah. However, your taqwa will reach Him. He has placed them under your command in this way, so that you may glorify Allah with takbir, for He has guided you the way. (O Muhammad!) Give good news to those who do their duty well.” The verse clearly expresses the meaning and content of the sacrifice to our eyes.
Again, there is an order for the victim to be grateful for all the difficulties and troubles encountered.
“(O Muhammad) Surely we have given you Kevser. So pray to your Lord and sacrifice. The real extinct is your enemy (who hates you).” Include us in your grateful servants, my GOD…
On this occasion, as a foundation, we are making an effort to deliver your sacrifices, which you have given us as your power of attorney, to orphans, orphans and those in need, both at home and abroad. You can contact us in this regard. May Almighty Allah reflect these meanings expressed by the sacrifice to all of our lives.
