Sacrifice during Hajj

Hajj is performed during the days of Eid-ul-Adha. It is performed between the 10th and 12th of Dhu-al-Hajjah. Millions of Muslims perform this sacred worship every year. Hajj should be performed by a Muslim one time in the whole life. If someone cannot afford it, he should not perform it and should do other good deeds. Those who can afford Hajj Umrah packages by Umrah Experts or by any other travel agent also perform Hajj and sacrifice their animals at sacred places. Muslims sacrifice their animals to make Allah happy and to distribute it among the poor. Muslims sacrifice in the commemoration of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S).

Hazrat Ibrahim was examined by Allah Almighty as Allah ordered him to sacrifice his son. He loved Allah too much and had strong faith in Allah. He was ready to do anything to make Allah happy. He went to sacrifice his son. Allah stood a ram instead of his son in front of Hazrat Ibrahim to be sacrificed. It was only test of him from Allah to check how much he has faith in Allah and how much he love Allah.

In the commemoration of that holy sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) Muslims sacrifice animals every year. Following animals are sacrificed by Muslims:

  1. Camel
  2. Goat
  3. Cow
  4. Buffalo
  5. Sheep

These are the five kinds of animals which Muslims sacrifice for Allah. During the days of Hajj after performing the Sa’eey Muslims perform this holy act. Millions of animals are sacrificed by Muslims on this occasion. Those who do not go for Hajj, sacrifice animals in their own regions. It is one of the holy worships and also is the charity type worship. Those who perform Sacrifices become close to Allah.

When a Muslim performs sacrifice he represents that he has nothing personal from Allah and he is always ready to sacrifice his loveliest thing for gaining the happiness of Allah. The meat of animal is divided into three parts.

  1. For own family
  2. For relatives
  3. For poor and needy people

From one point of view sacrifice is the charity and help of needy people. Third part of meat is distributed among the needy people. Distributing meat among relatives, friends and needy people creates love for you in all of them. In this way sacrifice is the best way of creating love among Muslims.

There was a difficulty in sacrificing animals during the Hajj because there are millions of Muslims during the Hajj. Therefore, sacrificing a great number of animals was difficult in a limited place and managing them was also difficult. But as we know this is an age of technology all the things have become easy for us. It has made sacrifice of animals very easy. Only pilgrims book buy the animal online and it is slaughtered for them. The paper of proof is received in the hands of pilgrims. It is the easy way to perform sacrifice without covering much space. If these animals are slaughtered by each pilgrim there will be no more space for millions of pilgrims to sacrifice millions of animals.

This sacrifice is done through Islamic Bank and meat is distributed among the needy people. There is an abattoir where these animals are sacrificed. Perform Hajj in 2021 by making advance booking from Umrah Experts.
