[2] Sending Your Personal Eed Sacrifice Abroad – [A Specific Case Regarding a Man Whose Children Live In Another Country] – By Shaikh Uthaymeen [Rahimahullaah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

A worker lives in another country and his children are living in his native country, and they are more in need than the people in the country he is working at present; is it better that he slaughters his Eed sacrifice in the country he is residing at present or send the Eed sacrifice money to his family back home?

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said:

What I see in this Specific Case is that he slaughters both in his present country of residence as well as back home. However, if he is not able to do so, then he should slaughter the sacrifice over there [i.e. for his family back home], so that they can enjoy themselves during the blessed days of Eed.

[1] The Ruling On ‘Sending Your Personal Eed Sacrifice Abroad’ – By Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Giving Money to An Organization to Buy The Eed Sacrifice And Slaughter The Animal On Your Behalf In Another Country – [What is The Ruling?]

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said: I do not see that it is permissible to give the price of the Eed sacrifice to that organization to buy the sacrifice in another country. [Ref 1]

What Are The Religious Benefits That Will Missed When Your Eed Sacrifice Is Carried Out In Another Country?

[1] If the price of the Eed sacrifice is sent to another country [i.e. so that the animal is bought and slaughtered there], their country will be deprived of the Islamic practices related to the Eed sacrifice.

[2] What is legislated is that a person slaughters the animal himself, just as the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] used to do; so, if the price of the Eed sacrifice is sent to another country [i.e. so that the animal is bought and slaghtered there], this Sunnah will be lost.

[3] It is an act of worship to mention the name of Allaah when slaughtering the animal, so if the price of Eed sacrifice is sent to another country [i.e. so that the animal is bought and slaughtered there], then he [i.e. the persin] wil be deprived of this act of worship.

[4] It is an act of worship to eat from the Eed sacrifice, so if the price of the Eed sacrifice is sent to another country [i.e. so that the animal is bought and slaughtered there], then this act of worship will be missed. [Ref 2]

What Can One Do For His [or Her] Parents After They Have Passed Away?

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Question:

The questioner asks: What are the best deeds a person can do in order to please Allaah (The Most High) and (also) benefit one’s deceased parents?

Answer:

Supplicating for your two parents is from the best of deeds that will benefit them after they have passed away; fulfilling their promises (or contracts) after they have passed away; keeping the ties of kinship which cannot be reached except through them and showing respect and kindness to their friends.

It has been reported in a hadeeth on the authority of Abu Usaid Maalik Bin Rabee’ah As-Saa’idee (radiyallaahu-anhu) who said: One day whilst we were with the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) a man from Banu Salamah came and said: O Messenger of Allaah! Is there anything left by way of honouring and showing kindness towards my parents after their death? He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: Supplicating for them; seeking Allaah’s forgiveness for them; fulfilling their promises (or contracts which they may have left behind) after their death; showing respect and kindness towards their friends and keeping the ties of kinship which cannot be reached except through them (i.e. their relatives). [Reported by Abu Dawud, Ahmad and Ibn Maajah]

Besides The Kufr They Hide In Their Hearts, Munaafiqoon Are Wicked Opportunists

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَقُولُ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ فَإِذَا أُوذِيَ فِي اللَّهِ جَعَلَ فِتْنَةَ النَّاسِ كَعَذَابِ اللَّهِ وَلَئِن جَاءَ نَصْرٌ مِّن رَّبِّكَ لَيَقُولُنَّ إِنَّا كُنَّا مَعَكُمْ ۚ أَوَلَيْسَ اللَّهُ بِأَعْلَمَ بِمَا فِي صُدُورِ الْعَالَمِينَ

Of mankind are some who say: “We believe in Allah,” but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allah, they consider the trial of mankind as Allah’s punishment, and if victory comes from your Lord, (the hypocrites) will say: “Verily! We were with you (helping you).” Is not Allah Best Aware of what is in the breast of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinns). [29:10]

Reminders from the above Ayah

Allaah informs us that there are people who neither exercise patience when put to trial nor do they stand firm in facing some of the difficult circumstances. When they are beaten or their wealth is confiscated or humiliated in order to make them leave the fold of Islaam and return to falsehood, they consider the trial of mankind as Allaah’s punishment.  And if victory comes from your Lord [O Muhammad], they will say: “Verily! We were with you [helping you]’’ because it agrees with their desires. This is the category of people about whom Allaah [The Most High] stated:

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ حَرْفٍ ۖ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ ۖ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَىٰ وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. [22:11]

Believers Never Lose Hope In Allaah’s Mercy, But They Also Fear For Themselves

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said in Surah Al-Muminoon Aayaat 57-62:

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ هُم مِّنۡ خَشۡيَةِ رَبِّہِم مُّشۡفِقُونَ

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِـَٔايَـٰتِ رَبِّہِمۡ يُؤۡمِنُونَ

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِرَبِّہِمۡ لَا يُشۡرِكُونَ

وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡتُونَ مَآ ءَاتَواْ وَّقُلُوبُہُمۡ وَجِلَةٌ أَنَّہُمۡ إِلَىٰ رَبِّہِمۡ رَٲجِعُونَ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ يُسَـٰرِعُونَ فِى ٱلۡخَيۡرَٲتِ وَهُمۡ لَهَا سَـٰبِقُونَ

وَلَا نُكَلِّفُ نَفۡسًا إِلَّا وُسۡعَهَا‌ۖ وَلَدَيۡنَا كِتَـٰبٌ۬ يَنطِقُ بِٱلۡحَقِّ‌ۚ وَهُمۡ لَا يُظۡلَمُونَ

Verily! Those who live in awe for fear of their Lord; And those who believe in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord; And those who join not anyone (in worship) as partners with their Lord; And those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charities, etc., have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning). It is these who race for the good deeds, and they are foremost in them [e.g. offering the compulsory Salat (prayers) in their (early) stated, fixed times and so on]. And We tax not any person except according to his capacity, and with Us is a Record which speaks the truth, and they will not be wronged.

Few Reminders about the People Mentioned In the Above Aayah

Their hearts are filled with fear due to the fear they have of their Lord. They fear that the justice of their Lord will take effect on them and thus they will be left with no good deeds. They are afraid of having a false good opinion about themselves that they have fulfilled the rights of their Lord and they fear that their Eemaan will cease. This is due to the fact that they know their Lord and what He deserves of exaltation and glory. This fear of theirs necessitates that they refrain from that which will bring about those evil consequences of sins and due to falling short in that which one has been commanded. They carry out that which they have been commanded, such as the prayer, zakat, hajj etc whilst fearing for themselves when their deeds will be presented in the presence of their Lord and on that Day in which they will stand in His presence [on the day of judgement] – fearing that their deeds will not save them from the punishment of Allaah due to their knowledge of their Lord and what He truly deserves of obedience through various types of worship. [Ref 1]

Ibraaheem At-Taymi [rahimahullaah] said: I do not compare my speech with my actions except fearing that my [speech] belies [my deeds]. Ibn Abee Mulayka [rahimahullaah] said: I met thirty Companions of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and each of them was afraid of hypocrisy for himself and none of them said that he was as strong in belief as the angel Jibreel or Meekaa’eel. And Al-Hasan Al-Basri [rahimahullaah] said: It is only true believers who fear nifaaq and only a munaafiq who considers himself safe [i.e. does not fear nifaaq]. [Ref 2]

Whenever The Filthy Doctrine of The Khawaarij Emerges, It Has To Be Rebutted | Shaykh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (Hafithahullah)

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] says:

“The people of knowledge [i.e. the scholars] are of the view that it is obligated on the Muslims in every era that if they are certain about the presence of this filthy doctrine [i.e. the doctrine of the khawaarij], they should remedy it through calling to Allaah [i.e. the correct way] and enlighten the people about that. If they [i.e. khawaarij] do not obey [and come out fighting], then they are fought [by the Muslim ruler] in order to repel their harm.”
