Sacrifice performed by the Holy Prophet Muhammad is an important religious ritual in remembrance. God put Abraham to a very difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Qur’an. “My Lord! Give me (Abraham) the righteous (son) !? So we gave him the good news of a boy who was ready to suffer and endure? Then, when the son was old enough to work with him, he said: “My son, I see in a vision that I am sacrificing for you: Now tell me what is your opinion !?”, One bears patience and perseverance! So when they had twain relegate their intention (to God), and he had made him prostrate on his aspect (for sacrifice), We called out to him: O Abraham! Have you already fulfilled the vision !? In this way we will reward those who are right.” A trial and We delivered him with a significant sacrifice: and We left him (for this blessing) among the generations to come: (37: 100-109). This is the source of the Islamic sacrifice in fulfilling the command of God given in the Qur’an:? … Turn to prayer and sacrifice to your Lord. (108: 2).
The intention of qurbani, like all other basics of Islam, is to imbibe piety and self respectability. It encourages the spirit of qurbani for the right cause. To explain its purpose, God says in the Qur’an. It is not their fare, nor their blood, that influence God, It is their religiosity that reaches God?: (22:37)
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “On the 10th day of Jil-Hijjah, there is no better deed than shedding blood (slaughtered animals) in the sight of Allaah. The blood (slaughtered animal) is approved by Allah before going to bed on the ground. Therefore you must offer it with a good spirit. For every hair of the sacrificial animal, there is a blessing. Here are the principles and methods of Qurbani according to Hanafi Fiqh.
Those who have financial means and savings left over for their own needs during the year also need Qurbani like Zakat. It is necessary for one’s self. However, animal slaughter can also be given to each member of one’s family. While this is not mandatory, it can also provide hope of benediction and blessings to departed souls, even for one’s dead relationships.
What a sacrifice
All permissible (halal) pet or bred quadrilaterals can be provided for Qurbani. Usually, goats, sheep, rams, cows and camels are slaughtered. Seven persons are allowed to share a cow or camel sacrifice on the condition that their share should not be less than one-seventh and their intention is to offer a sacrifice. Age of sacrificial animals Sacrifice of a goat or sheep less than one year old (unless the sheep are very strong and fat it seems to be full age) is out of order.Cow should be partially two years old. Camels should not be less than five years mature.
The sacrifice of an animal like bakra orcow is not in order if it loses one eye, or blindness, or one-third or more of its sight, or one-third or more of its tail, or if its ear is cut off, or if it is lame. , Or its bones have no marrow, or no ears by birth, or its horns are broken from their roots, or it has no teeth. If the teeth are beyond intact, it is allowed. If there are no horns by birth, or less than a third of the horns are broken, it is permissible.
Distribution of meat
The meat of the sacrifice should be eaten, given to relatives and friends, (even to non-Muslims) and given to the poor in charity. One-third should be given in charity, but it is not a sin if it is less.
Prohibitions on skin use
It is not permissible to pay a portion of meat or the skin of a slaughtered animal. Instead they should be given to the poor in charities. The rope and cover of the sacrificial animal must also be given generously. Intention It is commendable that Jill-Hijjah, who wished to make sacrifices, did not cut his hair, shave, or cut his nails from the 1st (until he made the sacrifice).
Intention In the first case, the person proposing the bakra qurbani must have a purpose for that effect. The approach of sacrifice For slaughter the animal should be placed on the left side opposite the kaba and its throat should be cut with a sharp knife and its blood allowed to flow. In the case of a camel, its left foreleg should be allowed to stand after being removed. A sharp spear should be pressed on both sides of its chest and neck, allowing blood to flow.
