Prophetic

When offering Prophetic Qurbani, we successfully follow in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as well as Prophet Ibrahim (AS). Prophetic Qurbani is a selfless deed in which dedicated Muslims will give Qurbani on their own behalf, and another one to follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) who would always perform two Qurbanis. One for himself and the other for those in his Ummah who couldn’t afford it.

The Story of Qurbani

The Qurbani story states that the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) was ordered by Allah (SWT) to sacrifice his son, Ismail (AS), in order to display his devotion. Both Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS) agreed; however, Ismail (AS) requested to be restrained by his arms and legs, so he didn’t struggle, whilst Ibrahim (AS) wore a blindfold so that he didn’t have to watch his son suffer.

Upon sacrificing Ismail (AS) and removing his blindfold, Ibrahim (AS) discovered that a ram had been put in Ismail’s (AS) place, whilst Ismail (AS) stood beside him alive and well. Since both Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS) had displayed such devotion to Allah (SWT), He vowed to care for them. It’s from this story that the significance of Qurbani stems.

What is Prophetic Qurbani?

On the day of Eid al-Adha, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) would perform Qurbani on behalf of himself, as well as an additional sacrifice on behalf of those from his Ummah who couldn’t afford to give.

Abu Talhah (RA) reported, ‘The Prophet (SAW) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood.’ (Ahmad)

This was performed out of the Prophet’s (SAW) duty to Allah (SWT), as a generous and selfless nature is absolutely imperative to the Islamic faith. As a result, this donation is referred to as the Prophetic Qurbani. 

Why give Prophetic Qurbani?

It’s the duty of Muslims to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW); by giving an extra you will be reviving a great Sunnah.

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said “Whoever revives a Sunnah of mine that dies out after I am gone, he will have a reward equivalent to that of those among the people who act upon it, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest…” (Ibn Majah)

A prophetic Qurbani donation enables Muslims to follow the Sunnah and support even more individuals in need. After all, all Muslims should dedicate themselves to providing aid to as many struggling people as possible.
