The Qurban is the slaughter of certain animals on the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of Zulhijjah with the intention of getting closer to Allah SWT. The commandment to sacrifice was revealed by Allah to us in the 2nd year of the Hijrah along with the command to pray Eidul Adha and zakat.
The Word of Allah SWT which means:
"So pray to your Lord and slaughter. " Al-Kautsar:
According to a famous opinion, the purpose of prayer in that verse is Eidul Adha prayer and what is meant by slaughtering is sacrifice.
Ibn Jarir interpreted the verse as follows:
“Make your prayers sincere only for Allah alone by not expecting anything other than Him. Likewise, the sacrifice that you have made, intend only for Allah, not for idols, as gratitude for what Allah has bestowed on you which is innumerable. "
The Prophet SAW has also said which means:
"There is no practice that is most loved by Allah than the Children of Adam during the Eidul Adha other than slaughtering the animal of sacrifice. Surely the animal will come on the Day of Resurrection (as a witness) with horns, feathers and nails. And behold, the blood of the animal sacrifice lay somewhere beside Allah before it flowed on the ground. Because of that, make yourself happy with it. " (History of Tirmizi, Ibn Majah and Hakim)
Law of Qurban
The law of sacrifice is the sunnah muakkadah.
Some scholars of the Hanafi school argue that sacrificing is obligatory for people who fulfill zakat's lineage. Among their references is the hadith which means:
"Whoever is excess (in property) but does not slaughter the animal victim, let him not approach my mosque." (History of Ahmad and Ibn Majah)
Fadhilat of Qurban
The privilege of people who make sacrifices.
Saidina Ali Bin Abi Talib RA has narrated that anyone who leaves his house with the intention of buying the victim's animal, then every step 10 virtues are purified, 10 mistakes are eliminated, their dignity is increased by 10 degrees.
If he chatted with the seller when buying it, then every word he uttered was the same as one tasbih. And if the price is paid, then every one dirham, he will get 700 virtues. If the animal is laid on the ground, then every drop of blood that is shed will be made by Allah 10 angels who pray and ask Allah to forgive his mistakes until the Day of Resurrection.
If the meat is distributed, then every bite people eat, for him is like liberating a child and grandchild of Prophet Ismail AS. Those who are sacrificed will become vehicles for those who sacrifice them on the Day of Resurrection.
In this case Rasulullah SAW has said which means:
"Give glory to your victims, because later he will become your vehicle when you pass the Siratal Mustaqim bridge. "
Apart from that, people who perform sacrificial worship are seen as good people among the people of the Prophet Muhammad SAW in accordance with the meaning of the words of the Prophet Muhammad:
"My good people are those who make sacrifices and my evil people are those who do not sacrifice."
Qurban can also save the person who did the Qurban from the crimes of this world and the hereafter. In this case Rasulullah SAW has said which means:
"Isn't that a victim of worship that saves people, that is, saves those who own it from the crimes of the world and the hereafter."
