The sacrifices of Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail (May peace be upon them)

The lives of the Prophets (May peace be upon all of them), the devoted Companions, the unblemished and pure Ahle Bait (the family of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)) and the noble saints are the true examples of sacrifice.  The days they led and the nights they spent are themselves testifying to their sacrifice.
It was nothing other than the sacrifice when Hadhrat Ibrahim (May peace be upon him) left his beloved wife Hadhrat Hajira (May peace be upon her) and his son Hadhrat Ismail (May peace be upon him) on the order of Allah Most High in a place where there was neither food nor shelter and not even a single living being.
When Hadhrat Ismail (May peace be upon him) attained the age of 13, Hadhrat Ibrahim (May peace be upon him) bid goodbye to his paternal love and readied himself to slaughter his own son on the command of Allah Most High.
Hadhrat Ismail (May peace be upon him) also offered his own head with astonishing eagerness and got ready to sacrifice himself for the sake of the Lord Almighty.
It was sacrifice when a great fire was prepared and Hadhrat Ibrahim (May peace be upon him) was put in it by Nimrod and the blazing fire and sky-high flames did not deter him for going against the will of Allah Most High.
