Best Wishes, too, to the Ranao Star Family for commencing the Paper’s Volume VII issues
In behalf of the men and women behind the Ranao Star Philippines, and of my family, I take this great opportunity to express our heartfelt congratulations to all the Muslims in the world on the occasion of Eid’l Adha, the Festival Day of Sacrifice.
Eid’l Adha is so significant an occasion. It demonstrates the highest form of faith. The sacrifice of our Prophet Ibrahim (as) of his son Ismail in obedience to the command of Allah is the greatest test to human being. How can you afford to slaughter your beloved son if you have no strong faith, devotion and obedience to the one who commands you?
Of course, Allah knows what is the best for His servants. He, the Most Merciful, did not allow His Prophet to physically sacrifice his son, but in his son’s stead, a goat or a sheep, which Prophet Ibrahim had no inkling until he had opened his eyes to the reality.
God so loves the world that He gives us what is best for us
On this noble occasion, too, this issue at hand is the last of RSP Volume VII. On August 27, 2018, the first issue of RSP Volume VIII will come out with a cover date August 27-September 2, 2018. – RSP
