    In the context of Passover, Qur’an mentions it in Q.10, v.87-89.
    Important point from Qur’an is, the Paschal lamb doesn’t atone sin whatsoever. It kills the firstborn sons of Pharaoh. The death of the lamb turns out to be the unleashing “killing spirit” in deep darkness of the night. That’s why Moses specifically writes * it * is Jehovah’s Passover.
    Exo.12
    11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover.

    The Paschal lamb has nothing to do with atonement of sin.

    It was a propitiation or turning away of the consuming wrath of God. The fact that the Israelites had to sprinkle the sacrificial blood on the doorposts shows that they were also sinners just as the Egyptians. They were no different in this respect. In Islam all men are not equal in being the deserving objects of God’s consuming wrath and holiness. Islam says all you need to do is recite the prayers and there is no wrath to be feared. The message of Islam is that believers never have to fear the wrath of God as long as they keep up the prayers. Allah would never threaten his own people because he is their protector. This protection is only conditional on keeping up the prayers. The passover teaches that the propitiation of God’s wrath is also conditional on a substitionary sacrifice independent of the ritual acts of worship of the believer.

    No it doesn’t.

    [10.87] And We revealed to Musa and his brother, saying: Take for your people houses to abide in Egypt and make your houses places of worship and keep up prayer and give good news to the believers.
    [10.88] And Musa said: Our Lord! surely Thou hast given to Firon and his chiefs finery and riches in this world’s life, to this end, our Lord, that they lead (people) astray from Thy way: Our Lord! destroy their riches and harden their hearts so that they believe not until they see the painful punishment.
    [10.89] He said: The prayer of you both has indeed been accepted, therefore continue in the right way and do not follow the path of those who do not know.

    Don’t quote my comments as partial sentences and /or mixed up with your comments.

    Deletion ensues forthwith.

    We Moslems reduce the sacrifice 3 days a year during the season of Hajj or Eid Qurban only.
    Qiblah is Islamic term for a place where the proper sacrifice is killed, in light of Q.48, v.25, that can be compared with making the Jewish houses the Qiblah (Q.10, v.87). Hence a slaughtering of the Paschal lamb is the first ever sacrifice of Jews in Egypt.

    Concerning the punishment on the firstborn sons of Pharaoh, it is mentioned as the parts of Egyptian riches or property which eventually got destroyed, per Q.10, v.88, and it was done per Q.10, v.89.

    The Sin offering and Burnt Offering have to be immolated in fire in order to atone sins, whereas the Paschal lamb is typical of the Thank Offering that has to be eaten by the offerers. Do Jews and Romans eat the Catholic sacrament? No.
    Jesus was sacrificed by the Jewish unrepentants.

    The Thank Offering like a Paschal lamb has its own limited merit of turning away of the incoming consuming wrath (external matter), but it doesn’t afford to reach further beyond its role or function, hence it can’t be the atonement of sin of the offerers (internal matter).
