UDHIYAH FOR ENTIRE FAMILY.
Sahih Muslim 1967
The Book of Sacrifices, Book 35, Hadith 28
One sheep is sufficient as udhiyah for one man and his family and whoever he wants among the Muslims. ‘Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) ordered that a ram with black legs, black belly and black (circles) around theeyes should be brought to him, so that he could sacrifice it.
'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) commanded that a ram with black legs, black belly and black (circles) round the eyes should be brought to him, so that he should sacrifice it. He said to 'A'isha: Give me the large knife, and then said: Sharpen it on a stone. She did that. He then took it (the knife) and then the ram; he placed it on the ground and then sacrificed it, saying: Bismillah, Allah-humma Taqabbal min Muhammadin wa Al-i-Muhammadin,
The night of Al-Qadr (power, honor, decree) and Zakatul-Fitr (break fast charity).
Allaah ﷻ says in the Qur'aan "O' you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you so that you may achieve Taqwaa (righteousness, God-fearing)."
Among the great seasons of worship are the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which Allaah has favoured over other days.
“By the dawn [this is an oath from Allah. He has the right to swear by any object of His creation (i.e., the sun, the moon, the stars, the dawn, or the angels]; By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah)” Surah Al-Fajr ayat 1-2
the person who sends one Durood upon him, Allah Taala will send ten mercies upon that person.
The blessed month of Ramadaan is just around the corner. We should prepare ourselves to receive this month with sincerity in our fasting and our nightly prayers.
Allaah, the Glorious, has guided us to this deen (of Islaam) and without His guidance we would be lost. We should be grateful we belong to this Ummah, the best nation that has ever existed.
