The Element of Sacrifice

The significance of Eid Ul Adha or ' Eid of Sacrifice' is that when you sacrifice the below animal, you divide the meat into 3 parts; a small portion for yourself, a slightly larger one for the relatives and neighbors, and the largest portion to be given to poor one of one's society.

Now based on this, if you think about it, there is an English nursery rhyme written, which now I think may have been written by a Muslim/ or someone inspired by this Eid and here's why:

Baa, baa, black sheep,

Have you any meat?

Yes, sir, yes, sir,

Three bags full;

One for the master,

And one for their Kins,

And one for the poor little families

Who live down the lane.
