My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous.”
So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.
And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think.” He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allāh wills, of the steadfast.” [As Saffaat:100-102]

When I was younger I really wanted a certain toy which I bothered my mom to get me. Once I finally had it this toy became the source of me being tested. One of my cousins liked it so much I was forced to give it up to him. This incident popped into my head upon reading the above verses. It may be that you really want something, as we see Ibrahim (as) wanted a child and he was given a son; but this thing may become the source of being tested. Ibrahim (as) was willing to sacrifice his son who was the most dear to him. What would we do if we were asked to sacrifice something we thought of as dear?
