August 21, 2018 – Faith & Religion: The Day of Sacrifice in Islam
Season 11, Episode 34
There is a very special observance going on across the Muslim world today – it’s called eid ul adha – any idea what it is? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, one of the five pillars of Islam, and a holy day happening today in the tradition of Islam. On this day – during the sacred season known as The Hajj – Muslims around the world are observing what is known as The Day of Sacrifice. We’ll hear from our very own Imam Musri about what this sacred day means for those who practice the religion of Islam. And, we’ll compare notes within our three faith traditions about similarities that we find in regard to this special day. We’ll also take a critical look at the disturbing biblical story of Abraham called to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Our conversation about The Day of Sacrifice being observed today by faithful Muslims around the world – that’s coming on this Friends Talking Faith.
