Qurbani is the graceful act every Muslim man and woman wants to perform on 10th of Zil-Hijjah. It is indeed pleasurable to know that the act of Qurbani is’farz’ upon every man and woman. Apart from this, Muslim can also perform Qurbani from behalf of their deceased parents. It will help in deletion of their sins before the emergence of the Day of Judgment when they would appear to be accountable in front of Allah (S.W.T.).
Usually sadiqah-e-jariah, contribution in charity, recitation of the Quranic verses and ayaats are the acts one individual Muslim can perform so that his/her deceased father or mother would get benefit (Sawaab). But we are thankful to Allah (S.W.T.) that He made the instructions for Qurbani flexible enough that both alive and dead Muslims would earn Ajar-o-Sawaab by slaughtering their bought Halal animal to fulfill the purpose the Qurbani.
Muslim son can carry out Qurbani on behalf of his expired parents. Muslim woman would have to follow the same instructions. If she is married then she has to ask his husband so that his husband would carry out Qurbani for her deceased parents. If he doesn’t allow her then she couldn’t perform this act. But if is single or married and she earns money, if she wants to perform Sunnat-e-Ibrahimi for her parents then she is allowed to do so.
Among the months of Islamic calendar, the last month of Zil-Hijja is the most blessed of them. It is advised to recite specific aurado-wazaif and to offer ‘Nafl’ Namaz from the 1st of Zil-Hijja till 13th of the month. This should be kept in mind that ‘Fariza-e-Qurbani’ is only applicable to those Muslim brothers and sisters who have gone through the stage of Puberty.
It is especially advised to the Muslim Ummah to follow this act if they want their deceased beloved to receive bestowed blessings from Allah (S.W.T.) wherever they are after they had played their roles upon the stage of the world. Our beloved Prophet whom we also call as ‘Companion of Allah (S.W.T.)’ AND Hazrat Ismail has done a great of kindness towards humanity and Muslim Ummah.
