The Spirit of Qurbani – Part 4

Jul 15, 2021

Allah Ta’ala looks at the spirit of the Qurbani:
لَن يَنَالَ ٱللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلَا دِمَآؤُهَا وَلَـٰكِن يَنَالُهُ ٱلتَّقْوَىٰ مِنكُمْ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَىٰكُمْ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ
“Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have we subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.” [Surah Al-Hajj 22: 37]

Allah Ta’ala wants Taqwa from us.
We have to bring this Qurbani to life. We have to bring the spirit and reality into our Qurbani.
To revive the spirit of Qurbani within us, we have to learn the history of Qurbani.

Qurbani was a practice from the time of Hazrat Adam (عليه السلام) and was in the Shari’ah of every Nabi (عليه السلام) thereafter. However, the Qurbani that is known to us is the Qurbani of Sayyidina Ibraheem (عليه السلام)
The Sahabah ((رضي الله عنهم asked Nabi ﷺ “O Rasulullah, what is Qurbani?”
He ﷺ replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father, lbraheem (عليه السلام)
They (RA) asked: “What benefit do we derive from it?”

He ﷺ answered: “A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).”
“And (what reward is there for animals with) wool, O Rasulullah?” they (RA) asked.

“He ﷺ said, “a reward for every fibre of the wool.”
During the Hajjatul Wadaa’, Nabi ﷺ slaughtered one hundred camels, of which, sixty three camels, were slaughtered with his own Mubarak hands. Thirty seven camels were given to Hadhrat Ali (RA) to slaughter.

When Nabi was on a journey and the days of Qurbani commenced, then although it is not Waajib (obligatory) upon a traveller to offer Qurbani, Nabi ﷺ would carry out the Qurbani.

When Nabi was in Madinah Munawwarah, then as soon as the Khutbah of the Eid Salaah was completed, he would immediately proceed to slaughter his animal. He ﷺ attached so much of importance to Qurbani and never missed it.
We will continue with this discussion tomorrow in sha Allah.
