What do you mean by Sunnat-e-Ibrahimi:
Sunnah of Ibrahim (A.S) is the foundation of Eid Al-Adha, one night Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) saw a dream in which he sacrificed his beloved son Hazrat Ismail (A.S) when he was awakened and the Apostle of God feels this was a trap of the Devil and Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) disregarded it. The 2nd-night, he watched the same dream Occurred again.
Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) Feels that was not a trick of the Devil. There was a real message from God. Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) loved his son a lot. He took Hazrat Ismail (A.S) with himself for the fulfillment of Allah’s (SWT) order.
When they both reached Mount Arafat (the place where Hazrat Ibrahim is about to sacrifice his beloved son) he brought with him a knife and rope, He told his son about the dream and What God had commanded him to do this. Prophet Ismail (A.S) was the obedient son of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S). He agreed with his father and said that his hands and legs be tied so that he may not struggle and Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) blindfolded, and then he put the knife attack to his son,s throat.
He did as Allah had commanded him when Messanger of God took the blindfold off too, he was in full shock, and he saw the body of a dead ram (male-sheep) in front of him, and God Saved Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) son’s life.
Ismail (A.S) was fully un-harmed standing right next to his Ibrahim (A.S) Allah loves this act of Prophet Ibrahim(A.S), God converts this act of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S)
even Our beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH
himself performed the Sunnah of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S).
