Surah As-ṣāfāt 100-113 :

rabbi   hab   lī    mina    l-ṣāliḥīna
My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous.”

fabasharnāhu    bighulāmin    ḥalīmin
So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy (Ishmail)

falammā   balagha   maʿahu    l-saʿya   qāla    yābunayya   innī   arā   fī   l-manāmi    annī    adhbaḥuka   fa-unẓur   mādhā   tarā
And when his son was old enough to walk with him, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think.”

qāla    yāabati   if’ʿal   mā   tu’maru    satajidunī   in   shāa   l-lahu    mina    l-ṣābirīna
He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast.”

falammā   aslamā   watallahu    lil’jabīni
And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead

wanādaynāhu    an    yāib’rāhīmu
We called to him, “O Ibrahim,

qad   ṣaddaqta   l-ru’yā    innā   kadhālika   najzī    l-muḥ’sinīna
You have fulfilled the vision.” Indeed, We thus reward those who do good

inna   hādhā    lahuwa    l-balāu    l-mubīnu
Indeed, this was the clear trial

wafadaynāhu   bidhib’ḥin   ʿaẓīmin
And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice

wataraknā   ʿalayhi    fī    l-ākhirīna
And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations

salāmun   ʿalā    ib’rāhīma
“Peace upon Ibrahim”

kadhālika   najzī    l-muḥ’sinīna
Indeed, We thus reward those who do good

innahu    min   ʿibādinā    l-mu’minīna
Indeed, he was of Our believing servants

wabasharnāhu    bi-is’ḥāqa    nabiyyan    mina     l-ṣāliḥīna
And We gave him good tidings of Ishaq, a prophet from among the righteous

wabāraknā   ʿalayhi   wa  ʿalā   is’ḥāqa  wamin  dhurriyyatihimā  muḥ’sinun  waẓālimun  linafsihi  mubīnun
And We blessed him and Ishaq. But among their descendants are those who do good and those who are unjust

 

It was narrated from ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar that: the Messenger of Allah offered the sacrifice on the Day of Sacrifice in Al-Madinah. He said: “if he did not offer the Nahr (sacrifice a camel) he would have offered Dhabihah (sacrificed a sheep) at the prayer place.”
