There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta'ala during the days of sacrifice

Eid Mubarak!
Assalamualaykum (Peace Be Upon You),

I Pray this message reaches you in the best of eeman and health.

As we approach the end of the 10 blessed days of Dhul Hijjah, The Prophet (Peace and Blessing be upon Him) said:

"On no days is the worship of Allah Ta'ala more loved than in the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. The fast of each of these days is equal to the fast of a whole year, and the worship of each of these nights is equal to the worship of Laila-tul-Qadr (Night of Power).”

The 10th of Dhul Hijjah marks an important act of worship that has been performed by Muslims for the past 1431years, the qurbanni (sacrifice).

Started by Prophet Ibraheem (Peace be upon Him) when Allah (SWT) ordered him to scarifies his son, Ismail (Peace be Upon Him).

The act of sacrifice itself entails great reward:

It is related by Ayesha (RA) that Rasulullah (Peace and Blessing be upon Him) said,

'There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta'ala during the days of sacrifice than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta'ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart."
(Tirmizhi, Ibn Majah)

From the above ahadith, we have seen the immense reward of these 10 days and the great reward that sacrifices carry.

Conveying the true message of Islam, no matter how small is an obligation upon all Muslims and is a way of completing our own Ibadah (worship) with great reward. Allah (SWT) says in Surah Fussilat;

"And who is better in speech than he who invites to Allah and does righteous deeds, and says: 'I am one of the Muslims.'"
(The Holy Qur’an 41:33)

Lets not forget that dawah carries great reward. The Prophet (saw) said that;

“Whoever calls to guidance will gain a reward similar to that gained by his followers without curtailing their rewards.” [Sahih Muslim]
