THE DAILY ISLAMIC REMINDERS.
Every year Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, a sheep, a cow or a camel – to reflect Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail for the sake of God. At least one third of the meat from the animal must go to people who are poor or in vulnerable situations.
The Messenger of ALLAH (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: “Whoever can afford to offer a sacrifice but does not do so, let him not approach our place for prayer. (Reported by Ahmad and Ibn Maajah; classed as saheeh by al-Haakim from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (may ALLAAH be pleased with him).
Offering sacrifice during `Eid Al-Adha is regarded as wajib or mandatory according to Imam Abu Hanifah and as sunnah mu'akkadah or confirmed Sunnah according to other jurists for those who has regularly income or those WHO CAN AFFORD. 7 people can share one cow as their sacrifice, a sheep and goat are all permitted.
May ALLAH aid us to be able to sacrifice for HIS sake- Aameen.
