The short briefing on the slaughtering activity was given by the Programme Director, Ustaz Aisamuddin when everyone’s arrived at the destination. It is continued by a meaningful tazkirah by MISDEV’14 class leader, Ustaz Afnan Hamimi. The tazkirah was about the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim a.s. and his long-awaited son, Prophet Ismail a.s. Sacrifice or tadhiyyah by the Prophet Ibrahim should be followed by all Muslims. It’s the genuine sacrifice in seeking mardhatillah.
