It is significant to say, that killing an innocent child is not permissible in Islam. The stories that we have heard about infidel tribes, were in such a way that they killed their children in the way of their fake Gods and this act was due to illiteracy and other reasons. When we talk about the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S), his intention was only to obey the command of Allah. When He saw the dream that was shown by Allah, He woke up and had only one thing on His mind; that Allah has ordered Him to do so. But at the time of sacrifice, Allah replaced a sheep with Prophet Ismail (A.S.). This whole incident took place just to examine Prophet Ibrahimâs (A.S.) faith in Allah, not his son to be sacrificed.
