Sacrificing an Animal

Sacrificing an animal – A means of seeking Allah’s pleasure

Sacrificing an animal on the day of Eid gains one the approval and pleasure of Allah Most High.  There is a Hadith in Shu‘abul Iman to this effect:

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with Him) narrates that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  By virtue of slaughtering a sheep (or any other permissible animal) on the day of your Eid, your Lord will be pleased.

(Shu‘abul Iman, Hadith No. 7085)
