Sacrifice

with one comment


Just of late, I was roaming around the Net and I stumbled upon the above-mentioned word that, at one glance, looked like too big a word. And seemed to me, breaking it down to a simpler magnitude appeared to be almost impossible, for this term per se carried such a massive load of weight. I didn’t exactly stumble upon the word by chance though, as obviously this Wednesday will be the day of ʿĪd al-ʾAḍḥā festival and consequently I was merely googling about the occasion and its significance. After spending thirty minutes clicking a link after another in Google to learn more about this event and some other related articles, I came across the word sacrifice. With my cat’s-like curiosity, I spent another thirty minutes searching about this topic and managed to snag some definitions of the word from the Net. As in the Wikipedia definition of it. On the word of the online encyclopedia,

The term is used metaphorically to describe selfless good deeds for others or a short-term loss in return for a greater gain, such as in a game of chess.

Subsequent to reading the definition, one thought popped in my head out of the blue and got me thinking--does this mean donating money and deducting it from your tax a selfless act?
