Kurban Bayram Celebration at Village Presbyterian Church
turkish_house_3.jpgKurban Bayram commemorates the test that Abraham was placed through when asked to sacrafice his son. Abraham tells this to his son Ishmael, and Ishmael tells him to do what God wanted him to do. Prophet Abraham takes his son to Mount Mina near Mecca to make this offering to God. Prophet Abraham is ready to sacrifice his son for God, and his son Ishmael is ready to die for God. However, before the sacrifice takes place, God sends a goat with his angel Gabriel and tells Abraham that he passed the test that God had placed before him. Prophet Abraham is then asked to sacrifice the goat instead of his son as the sign of his loyalty to God.  (February 1, 2008 Prairie Village,KS)
