Hadiths about qurbani

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

    1. Whoever made a sacrifice with all sincerity, the act of sacrifice will protect him from hell-fire”
      (narrated by Tabrani)  


    1. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has said: “There is no deed that Allah s.w.t. loves most during Eid ul Adha other than the slaughter of a sacrificial animal. The sacrificial animal will appear during the day of judgement with it’s horns, hair and nails as witness to the deed in the name of Allah. The blood of the sacrificed animal is placed near Allah s.w.t. before it flows to the earth. Glad tidings to those who sacrifice”.
      (Meanings of the Hadith from Tirmidzi, Ibn Majah & Hakim)  


    1. According to Tirmizi Shareef and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hazrat Ayesha (radi Allahu anha) stated that Rasool-ul-lah (PBUH) said, “The son of Adam does not do any action on the day of Qurbani which is more pleasing to Allah than the sacrifice of animals; and he will come on the day of Qiyamah with it’s hairs, horns and hooves (for reward); and the blood (of the sacrificed animal) certainly reaches Allah before it falls down to the ground. So make yourselves purified therewith.”


    1. In another Hadith related in Sunan Ibn Majah, Zaid bin Arqam reported that the companions of Rasool-ul-lah (PBUH) asked, “Oh! Messenger of Allah, what is this sacrifice?”
      They said, “What is for us therein, O! Messenger of Allah?”
      He said, “There is one reward for every hair.”
      They said, “For wool, O! Messenger of Allah?”
      He said, “There is one reward for every strand of wool!”


  1. There is a tradition related from Hazrat Abu Hurairah that Rasool-ul-lah said that the person who has the means of performing Qurbani but does not do so should not even come NEAR our EIDGAH (place of Eid Namaaz).
