Eid mubarak to all of you! It’s Eid al-Adha, the day that commemorates the great sacrifice of Sayyidna Ibrahim (as). Again one is reminded in a very direct way of what true sufism entails: complete surrender to the will of the Beloved. As a Pakistani writer once said: “these sufis are dangerous people, they would not hesitate to sacrifice their own children for the sake of their Beloved”. May we benefit from the special grace and mercy of this day and may we realise its true spirit.
