Sheikh Mohamad Shuayb  Ambod, President of UYBAAI, and his officers, coordinators and members celebrated the “Feast of Sacrifice” at the house of the Ustadh Nando as millions of Muslims celebrated it around the world.

Sheikh Ambod said “The significance of celebrating this Feast of Sacrifice is to commemorate how Prophet Abraham (peace be with him) fulfilled the three words of Allah. These are: 1. The Islamic Call and Guidance where nobody helped him even his father, 2. He was thrown in a burning fire through his father, and 3. He was ordered to sacrifice his son Esmael where Allah replaced his son with a sheep after assuring his sincerity and loyalty. 

Qur’an 02:124; “And when his Lord tried Ibrahim with certain words, he fulfilled them. He said: Surely, I will make you an Imam (leader) of men. Ibrahim said: And of my offspring? My covenant does not include the unjust said he.”
