Family Ties

PrintE-mail

Hazrat Ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said on the day of ‘Eidul Adha: “There is no action more virtuous than the spilling of blood (through carrying out qurbaani) on this day, except (the virtuous action of) JOINING FAMILY TIES (that have been severed).” (Majma‘uz Zawaaid #5997)

Qurbaani entails slaughtering a goat, sheep, etc. However, in order to maintain  family ties one has to often slaughter the wild animal within — the animal called the EGO. While it is waajib upon the person who has the means for qurbaani to slaughter an animal on Eidul Adha, it is compulsory everyday on every person to keep slaughtering one’s ego and become a humble servant of Allah Ta‘ala.
