The Prophet SAW LOVED the udhiya or the sacrifice because of the enormous amount of blessing in this:
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has said: “There is no deed that Allah s.w.t. loves most during Eid ul Adha other than the slaughter of a sacrificial animal. The sacrificial animal will appear during the day of judgement with it’s horns, hair and nails as witness to the deed in the name of Allah. The blood of the sacrificed animal is placed near Allah s.w.t. before it flows to the earth. Glad tidings to those who sacrifice”.
(Tirmidi, Ibn Majah)
And in another hadith:
Zaid bin Arqam reported that the companions of The Prophet (SAW) asked: “Oh! Messenger of Allah, what is this sacrifice?”
They said, “What is for us therein, O! Messenger of Allah?”
He said, “There is one reward for every hair.”
They said, “For wool, O! Messenger of Allah?”
He said, “There is one reward for every strand of wool!”
Therefore, don’t pass this beautiful opportunity to amass so many good deeds and ensure you give a qurbani. The sunnah is to split the meat into three parts – one part is for you and your family, another part is for your friends and relatives and neighbours and lastly, one part is for the poor – so don’t deprive yourself of this blessing!
