Tripe & tongue is not something we eat often and we tend to look forward to obtaining it during the time of Eid ul Adha
When we all sacrifice our chosen animals as prescribed by the Almighty to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibraahim of his son Ismaeel who so willingly & unhesitatingly carried out the command of Almighty whereby
Ismaeel was replaced by a ram from Heaven. A test from Almighty passed with flying colours by father & son!
