What is the reward for Qurbaani?

Q: If one is slaughtering a buffalo or cattle for Qurbani, can one intend the remaining six shares for Nabi صلي الله عليه وسلم and Sahaba (Radiyallahu Anhum) as isale sawaab? What is the reward for doing so? Is there a specific reward?


1. Yes

2. The ibaadat of Qurbaani is meritorious and greatly rewarding. The Hadith explains that there is no action that is more beloved to Allah Ta'ala during the days of Qurbaani than the action of Qurbaani. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Qiyaamah with its horns, hair and hooves to be weighed on the scale of good deeds for the one who has carried out the Qurbaani. The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta’ala before the blood reaches the ground.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
