What's your gift for Allah on Eid AlAdha?



The statement of offering

Back Story of Tuhfa's First Time Slaughtering

Below is an email sent from Tuhfa (of the above video) to his Qurbani-friends.

assalam alaikum

The first time I cut an Udhiyah is with Mohsin's Afzal-bhai-meat-vendor. (I think Eid 1425/2004).

I still remember, I didn't book any animals with you guys, but bought one on the spot (one lil secret, I didn't even pay from my pocket, I called a sister, "Hey, you want a qurban, so I can practice cutting." Well, didn't really confess that latter part to her, and subhana Allah, she agreed, and later I found out she already did one before I called, so may Allah reward her for paying for two Qurbans in that year.)

Anyway, since then, I've learned more about the virtues of Udhiyah, and started to practice and call others to do this worship every year. Alhamdulillah, every year I dedicate part of Jummah Khutbah about it, and more and more are doing it locally.

So, never underestimate the impact that you can make by simply taking someone along to this act of worship, or taking the initiative to organize this activity, or buying an extra Qurban so someone can practice this worship for the first time :)

May Allah reward all local Qurbani initiators and supporters, ameen.

PS: For that sister who funded the learning experience, may Allah surprise you with tons of rewards in the hereafter.

PS2: I see Karim is leading people do the same up North!! May Allah accept from you!

Jazakullahu Khair. Allah makes it easy for us to fulfill this sacrifice for His sake, alhamdulillah. Whatever we're able to do, our hearts feel content knowing that we've done it for the sake of Allah.

Loved your message, very timely and very much needed it this high tech world where we can offer our sacrifice in just one click (not my style.)

Note: LOVE THE WATER MELON JOKE...lol
