HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Doing the Qurbani is a very virtuous act in the sight of Allah.

In this regard, Sayyadatina Aisha (RA) says that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

مَا عَمِلَ ابْنُ آدَمَ يَوْمَ النَّحْرِ عَمَلًا أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ، مِنْ اِهرَاقَةِ دَمٍ، وَإِنَّهُ لَيَأْتِيْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، بِقُرُوْنِهَا، وَأَظْلَافِهَا، وَأَشْعَارِهَا، وَإِنَّ الدَّمَ، لَيَقَعُ مِنَ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ، بِمَكَانٍ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَقَعَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ، فَطِيْبُوْا بِهَا نَفْسًا

“There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of sacrifice than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animals shall come on the day of Qiyaamah with its horns, hairs and hooves. The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore, sacrifice with an open and happy heart.”[Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 1493, Pg. 639, Vol.1]

In another tradition, Ali (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, ‘O Fatimah! Come and witness your sacrificial animal (being slaughtered), for surely, by its first drop of blood that falls on the ground, there will be forgiveness for you for every sin. Behold! It will be brought with its blood and flesh. It will then be placed in your scale (of deeds) multiplied 70 times.’ [Targeeb wa Tarheeb, Hadith No.3, Pg.160, Vol.2, Darul Fajr u Turath]
