Can a Muslim do Fariza-e-Qurbani on behalf of his deceased parents?

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.

Lunar calendar which is the Islamic calendar is approximately eleven days shorter than the solar calendar. As the boundary from which the crescent visibility is differs decides for the dates that fall on the Gregorian calendar therefore, it is seen that even a single state celebrates Eid on different dates because of the moon if sighted at that place or not. So 2 to 4 Eid dates are observed at the Gregorian calendar each year. Particularly bringing Pakistan in the spotlight unfolds the different dates people of a state not as big as India observe two Eid days in its different provinces. This happens solely because of the crescent that has to be seen with one’s eyes and then the scholars and Ulema’s announce Eid day after collecting evidences for the sighted moon.

VIRTUES OF QURBANI

Qurbani is a sacrifice that is offered at the time of Eid-ul-Adha to show gratitude towards Allah and to provide for the poor and needy. Qurbani is a practice commanded by Almighty Allah (Quran 108:2):

 

‘So turn in prayer towards your Lord and sacrifice (animals).’

qThe above mentioned verse signifies that along with praying five times a day to the one and only Allah it is also mandatory if you meet the conditions set by Shariah to sacrifice a domestic animal on Eid-ul-Adha. There is no action dearer to Allah during Eid-ul-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart. Hazrat Muhammad [pbuh] explains Qurbani as the Sunnah (practice) of Hazrat Ibrahim [pbuh] and the person who sacrifices is reward for every hair or every fiber of the wool of the sacrificed animal.
When a person slaughters a Qurbani animal, he is forgiven at the fall of the first drop of blood, and verily, the animal shall be brought forward on the Day of judgment with its blood, meat etc, and shall be increased in weight seventy times more than its own weight, and thereafter it will be placed on the scale of deeds. Regarding virtues of Qurbani Allah further mentions in Qur’an 22:37 that

“It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him.”

 

charityThus devotion is important during sacrifice. Allah does not require the flesh, blood or meat of the sacrificed animal. It is our intentions that are accounted for when we sacrifice. Thus those who sacrifice should do it with a pure heart, free of malice and with the right intentions. The virtues of Qurbani are not only limited to spiritual benefits but physical benefits are also there. The organ of the sacrificed animal that you eat strengthens your own organs. Personal experience tells us that meat from the sacrificed animal is much healthier than the meat eaten on any ordinary day. You receive the blessings of the poor and needy when you distribute their share of the meat. While distribution among family and friends increases your bond towards them.

The Adverse Aspects of Qurbani in Pakistan

But there is a downside amid all the fun and festive mood. People tend to block the streets and even main thoroughfares that cause much nuisance and hardship to people who use these to commute. This is mainly done in the name of security but there is no justification for causing trouble to other peoples for your sake. Another negative aspect is the litter and waste that spreads all over the area where the animals are kept. This is perhaps lack of common sense and care for the other people which cause these hardships for others.

And once the sacrificial act is done, there is more garbage on the streets and everywhere in Pakistan. The leftovers of animals after they are slaughtered are dumped onto the streets and open areas making the whole area polluted with pungent smell prevailing for many days. But people do bear these one or two negative aspects as this a religious obligation for every muslim to sacrifice animals if he has enough disposable money.
