New Year Resolution of “The Sacrifice”!

The new year resolution of the Goat/Lamb/Cow to be slaughtered this Eid.

The New Year is approaching so very fast. Interestingly, it’s coinciding with the date that I shall be slaughtered in the name of the Lord, and for the betterment of humanity.

But I think sometimes.

Yes, the baaaa that may sound like an idiotic expression of chaos to you humans is actually an encoded voice of multiple emotions. Yes, we have emotions as well.

My New Year resolution does not make sense for myself, so it is for my fellows and my fore [be] coming consumers.

Slaughtering me to keep the tradition alive, the great tradition that was the sacrifice at the order of the Lord, sacrificing what is the dearest to you, you Humans. Are you really following the tradition or are you merely cherishing the delicacy of the ever-changing gourmet recipes that you invent every now and then. Am I being the subject of hungry stomachs, for filling of lust-full-bellies or is there still any Abrahim-ic sacrificial emotion left in you, you mere humans! You, the proud representatives of your Lord, our Lord. Are you really following the real purpose, the real spirit…or are you just playing along?

My this years resolution is to shake up the sleeping beauty, the real spirit behind the festivity that is celebrated on Eid-El-Azha in you, consumers…humans.

And I remain…yours deliciously!

    OK, so since age 5 when I fell in love with this hot female bakri, petite and meek, who eventually ended up all cut up, I havent been able to handle the slaughter’s pressure… And now this post has added to the agony! Ah! Save them animals, but no! Its my God’s order, so shall it be!

    Happy Eid ppl, and happy eid dear cattle.

    MQ from ATP had to say this about the qurbani which fits here prefectly:

    Yeh sab kiya haiN? Faqat ik nukta-e-imaaN ki tafseeraiN
    Brahimi nazar paida magar mushkil say hoti hai
    (Iqbal)

    A rough translation:

    [What is all this? Interpretations of just one point of faith
    What is missing here is vision of Ibrahim ]
