We reached another Eid al-Adha. We pray Allah to give us prosperity in Turkey and all over the world.

And recite to them the story of Adam’s two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], “I will surely kill you.” Said [the former], “Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]. [Al Ma’ida 5:27]

And for all religion, We have appointed a rite [of sacrifice] that they may mention the name of Allah over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. For your god is one God, so to Him submit. And, [O Muhammad], give good tidings to the humble [before their Lord] [Hajj 22:34]

And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful. [Hajj 22:36]

And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice, [As-Saffat 37:107]

So pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone]. [Al-Kawthar 108:2]

“Such a person who had the ability and means to sacrifice an animal, but (despite this) he did not do so; should never come near our Eidgah (place where the Eid prayers are performed).” [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 18, Page 27, Hadith 8496]

Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) ordered to well-off person sacrifice an animal. He (peace be upon him) personally did this duty every year.

Sacrifice is one of the great rituals of Islam, in which we remember the Unity of Allaah, His blessings upon us and the obedience of our father Ibraaheem to his Lord, and in this act of sacrifice, there is much goodness and blessing. So the Muslim must pay attention to its great importance.

Eid al-Adha is kind of remembrance for us as Halal certification bodies. Various haram raw materials are using in the products which Muslims also consume. For this reason, we have the great responsibility upon our shoulders to let them out in the productions. So, we have to dedicate more than before to implement this divine duty.

May Allah keep us in his path and give us unity, salvation, peace, prosperity and of course Halal and Tayyib products for a Halal and Tayyib life.
