Virtues of Qurbani – Part 2

Jul 13, 2021

The virtues and rewards of performing Qurbani are manifold, therefore we will continue today to look at the virtues of this great spiritual deed.

Allah says in the Quraan:
لِّيَشْهَدُوا۟ مَنَـٰفِعَ لَهُمْ وَيَذْكُرُوا۟ ٱسْمَ ٱللَّهِ فِىٓ أَيَّامٍ مَّعْلُومَـٰتٍ عَلَىٰ مَا رَزَقَهُم مِّنۢ بَهِيمَةِ ٱلْأَنْعَـٰمِ ۖ فَكُلُوا۟ مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا۟ ٱلْبَآئِسَ ٱلْفَقِيرَ
“so that they might experience much that shall be of benefit to them,39 and that they might extol the name of God on the days appointed [for sacrifice], over whatever heads of cattle He may have provided for them40 [to this end]: eat, then, thereof, and feed the unfortunate poor.” [Al Hajj: 28]

In the very same Surah, Allah also says:
وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا لِّيَذْكُرُوا۟ ٱسْمَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَىٰ مَا رَزَقَهُم مِّنۢ بَهِيمَةِ ٱلْأَنْعَـٰمِ ۗ فَإِلَـٰهُكُمْ إِلَـٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌ فَلَهُۥٓ أَسْلِمُوا۟ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلْمُخْبِتِينَ
“For every nation We prescribed a way of sacrifice so that they may pronounce the name of Allah over the cattle which He has given them for food, but the object is one and the same: to remember that your God is one God; so submit yourselves to Him as a Muslim, and O Prophet, give good news to the humble.” [Al Hajj: 34]

There are various Ahadith that explain the Udhiyah or Qurbani of Nabi ﷺ as well as that of the Sahabah RA:

سَمِعْتُ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُضَحِّي بِكَبْشَيْنِ وَأَنَا أُضَحِّي بِكَبْشَيْنِ
Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet (ﷺ) used to offer two rams as sacrifices, and I also used to offer two rams. [Bukhari 5553]

It is also narrated in Saheeh al-Bukhari and Saheeh Muslim that Anas ibn Maalik RA said,
، قَالَ ضَحَّى النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِكَبْشَيْنِ أَمْلَحَيْنِ، فَرَأَيْتُهُ وَاضِعًا قَدَمَهُ عَلَى صِفَاحِهِمَا يُسَمِّي وَيُكَبِّرُ، فَذَبَحَهُمَا بِيَدِهِ

“The Prophet ﷺ sacrificed two white rams speckled with black. He slaughtered them with his own hand, said ‘Allahu akbar’ and put his foot on their necks.”

The Hadith also prove that the Qurbani or slaughtering was a regular practise of the Holy Prophet ﷺ.
It was narrated that ‘AbdAllah ibn ‘Umar RA said,

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ أَقَامَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِالْمَدِينَةِ عَشْرَ سِنِينَ يُضَحِّي ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ
“The Prophet ﷺ stayed in Madina for ten years, offering sacrifice (every year on Eid).” [At Tirmidhi 1507]
