The Sunnah of Ibraahem alayhi salaam -the Qurbaani. It is to be performed on
10th, 11th or 12th Zil Hijjah. One may sacrifice a thousand animals on days other than
these, but it will never be regarded or considered a Qurbaani.
Here, a believer is taught a great lesson that an action or a place or a time does not hold any virtue in itself; but rather it is Allahs command and order that changes the status, level and grade of things. Regarding Qurbaani, the Prophet saIlallahu alayhi wasallam said:
"There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbaani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on (he Day of judgement) with its horn, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart."
