Our dear Hassan whose Amazigh ancestors were brutalized by the Muslim invaders of al-Maghreb is here to do a little Da'wa in-spite of the fact that Allah does not allow it as per Q14:4

>Dear Reader ( s)

Yes our dear Hassan

>Your original question is : Why is goat slaughtered on the festival of eid?

ومنكم نستفيد

>But wait: The early Mufassereen (eg: al-Tabari) did not know if the subject of the sacrifice would be a كبش or a تيس or a شاه and now a Moroccan has the answer: Mashallah and is this شاه related to the شاه that ate the Qur'an? I'm just curious

For the readers: The story of the Sacrifice in the Qur'an is a mess as you shall see

>Allow me to first wish all Muslims Eid Al Adha Mubarak all over the world.

I thought that your Allah does not allow you to eat meat offered to Gods! Right? Oh wait it is Allah that is sending the scarified meat! What a disaster

>May Allah bless your sacrifices abundantly and brings wisdom that you continue to choose path of non-violence and peace.

Oh the وَفَدَيْنَاهُ بِذِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ? Your Allah is saying: And We (Allah that is) ransomed him with a great sacrifice!

Hello: It is your Allah who is sending the sacrifice! What a disaster and what a joke So how did he send it? Via UPS may be?

For the readers: This little Quranic gem puzzled al-Mufasereen because it is Allah who is sending un-identified sacrifice but al-Mufasereen come to the rescue and tell us it may be a ram or a goat or a Tais but it is not a camel or a cow! How did they know? We are never told right our dear Hassan from Morocco?

>Eid al-Adha is the Festival of the Sacrifice,

You mean a pagan festival of sacrifice? And another example of cruelty to animals in Islam and the barbarity of halal slaughter!

>also called the "Sacrifice Feast" or "Bake-Eid", is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two.

ومنكم نستفيد and this is sarcasm!

>It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of submission to God's command,

So Ibrahim's intent to murder his son is honored? Mashallah!

So who was the subject of the sacrifice our dear Hassan whose Amazigh ancestors were brutalized by the Muslim invaders of Morocco?

For the readers: al-Mufasereen had no clue because the Qur'an is silent about the subject of the sacrifice right our dear Hassan? So if you read al-Tabari you discover that 1/2 of early mufasereen believed that it is Isaac and the other 1/2 believed it is Isma'eel which means that they had no clue and when the Jews challenged Muslims al-Tabari comes up with the comic:

وزعمت اليهود أنه إسحاق وكذبت اليهود. or and the Jews claimed that (the subject of the sacrifice) is Isaac and the Jews are liars! Mashalllah!

Blaming the Jews as usual right our dear Hassan?

>before God then intervened through his angel Jibra'il (Gabriel) and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.

Really? Where would I find it in the Qur'an that Gabriel is the one who informed Ibrahim about this little farce? You will not find it! And who delivered the بِذِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ? You will not find it in the Qur'an!

>The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts;
The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.

Where does it say that in the Qur'an? You will not find it!

>Why Goat?

Where does it say it is a goat in the Qur'an? You will not find it! Why do you make things up?

>Koran tells how Allah demanded that Ibrahim sacrifice his first son, Ishmael,

NOT TRUE! The Qur'an is silent about the name of the subject of the sacrifice! Why the lies?

>in an act of subservience to his god.

Let me see so your Allah is sending a ذبح عظيم to himself? care to explain our dear Hassan?

For the readers: The Quran is saying that Allah is the one who is sending an animal (un-identified) as a sacrifice to himself! Very bizarre indeed

>According to the Koran, Ibrahim was wrought with indecision but resolved to do Allah's bidding - and even put the dilemma to Ishmael himself, who said the right thing to do was slaughter him.

Where does it say that in the Qur'an? Hint: It does not say that in the Qur'an? Liar or ignorant so which one is it our dear Hassan?

>However, as Ibrahim slashed the throat of his son he found that an angel had replaced Ishmael with a goat.

Really? Where would I find this little gem in the Qur'an?

>The animal sacrifices still carried out today are meant to symbolize and celebrate Allah's act of mercy.

You brutalize an animal and then slaughter it and you call it an act of mercy? Your Allah is very strange indeed

>It is my sincere wish the enemies of the world, ISIS, who are slaughtering Man, mostly Muslims, stop

Oh I see so the Yazidis and Christians in Syria and Iraq don't count! I get it!.

Did you learn something new today our dear Hassan whose ancestors the Amazigh were brutalized by the Arab invaders of Morocco in the 7th and 8th century?

For the readers: The author of the Qur'an assumed that the reader of the Qur'an must be familiar with the Biblical narratives of any Biblical story and I suspect that the name of the subject of the sacrifice is not mentioned because the subject must have been Isaac! Or Allah would have said وزعمت اليهود أنه إسحاق وكذبت اليهود or and the Jews claimed that it is Isaac and the Jews were liars! Do you get it our dear Hassan?
