8. One should within one’s means, try to purchase the best animal for Qurbaani. The healthier (i.e. the more valuable) the animal is the more the reward one will receive in the Hereafter.

عن عائشة وعن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم كان إذا أراد أن يضحي اشترى كبشين عظيمين أقرنين أملحين موجوءين . فذبح أحدهما عن أمته لمن شهد لله بالتوحيد وشهد له بالبلاغ . وذبح الآخر عن محمد وعن آل محمد صلى الله عليه و سلم (ابن ماجة رقم 3122)

Hadhrat Aaisha (Radhiallahu Anha) and Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) had reported that when Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) intended making Qurbaani, he purchased two large-sized, horned, black and white, castrated rams. He slaughtered one on behalf of his entire ummah and the other one on behalf of himself and the family of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). (i.e. he conveyed the thawaab of the first to his entire ummah, and the second to his family).

9. It is mustahab to fatten the animal for Qurbaani.

قال يحيى بن سعيد سمعت أبا أمامة بن سهل قال كنا نسمن الأضحية بالمدينة وكان المسلمون يسمنون (البخاري رقم 5553)

Yahya bin Saeed (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) reports that he heard Abu Umaamah bin Sahl (Radhiallahu Anhu) say: “We used to fatten our Qurbaani animals in Madina Tayyiba and all the Muslims (i.e. the Sahaabah) used to do the same .

10. If one is capable, it is best for him to make Qurbaani of his animal himself. If this is not possible, then he should at least witness his qurbaani being done provided hijaab is observed between the males and the females (i.e. intermingling should not take place).

عن علي رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال يا فاطمة قومي فاشهدي أضحيتك فإن لك بأول قطرة تقطر من دمها مغفرة لكل ذنب أما إنه يجاء بلحمها ودمها توضع في ميزانك سبعين ضعفا قال أبو سعيد يا رسول الله هذا لآل محمد خاصة فإنهم أهل لما خصوا به من الخير أو للمسلمين عامة قال لآل محمد خاصة وللمسلمين عامة (الترغيب رقم 1662)

Hadhrat Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that on one occasion Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) told Hadhrat Faatima (Radhiallahu Anha): “Witness your Qurbaani animal being sacrificed. With the first drop of blood that falls, your sins will be forgiven. Its meat and blood will be placed in your scale of good deeds and multiplied seventy times. Hadhrat Abu Saeed (Radhiallahu Anhu) asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam): “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is this reward exclusively reserved for your family or for all Muslims. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “It is for all Muslims.”

11. A woman can also slaughter her own animal provided she does not appear before strange men.

12. Do not slaughter the animal in the view of other animals.

13. One should use a sharp knife to slaughter. Do not cause difficulty to the animal by using a blunt knife at the time of slaughtering.

عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال أمر رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم بحد الشفار وأن توارى عن البهائم. وقال إذا ذبح أحدكم فليجهز (ابن ماجة رقم 3172)

Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Umar (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallalllahu Alaihi Wasallam) commanded that the knives be sharpened (before slaughtering the animal) and carry out the Qurbaani in a condition that it be concealed from the other animals. And when you slaughter the animal, then hasten in the slaughter.
