  • Royal Ji, Bravo. Gandhi Ji did not know that a time will come when animals will be treated better than the human being or better than the Muslims. So he said, what he said.

  • What about thousands of SIKHS, men, women and children tortured and Killed by the Rulers who were followed of Islam. Unparalleled torture was unleashed on the Sikhs. If it was not sanctioned by Islam, why the present Muslims condemn that and say that something Islamic had happened. That will go a long way to create social harmony.

  • Aayinaji, I have fallen in love with your language, half of which I do not understand. I thought you were Hindi medium, but now I find your Hindi expression is equally enigmatic. Of course you would not tell us anything about yourself, so I have to keep groping you in the dark. You can say, at this age what else I could do, even if you were sakshat before me ! Fine. Don't be so pricky about the word bastard, because liberated ladies in the West now proudly claim to beget bastard kids. About forty percent of Americans today  are proud to be real bastards. Personally, I don't have anything against a child who is born out of wedlock. I love them as much. 
    But actually  language should help a person to express the correct content of his feelings. Use of 'bastard' serves well to convey contempt for rascals, at least for old hands, like me. May be future generation will have to look for some other word because bastard may become an honorific signifying liberation of womankind.

  • Thanks God, Mr Naseer Ahmed Islam may be different than Manzural Haque Islam, he still likes word Basterds.

    Naseer Ahemd please explain Manzural Haqe that, Islam try to reform that any child born even from slave women of Muslim man will be free man or women, Manzarual Haque still likes words Basterds.

    May be in heaven God makes Men pregnant out of wedlock, heavenly Basterds.

    Does he is really a Lawer, may be in Indian court they use word Bastered, A bad Hindu influence, बेचारे मूसलमान, हमेशा दूसरी, सीरक करनेवाली कामों के साथ रहेते, ज़बान बी बीगड जाती है।.

    जादातर  हर मूसालमान पेगम्बर की हूलीये की नक़ल करना कभी नहीं भूलते, आख़ीर कूछ न कर पाये तो, नीचे से तंग पेन्ट ज़रूर पेहन लेंगे, लेकिन जाबान, पेगम्बरो वाली नहीं इस्तेमाल करेंगे।

    We Hindus have Idol in corner of streets, which they even not care about, other than asking worldly things but Nearly every Muslim are चलताफीरता paigamber Idol.

    Manzural दादा( आपने एक comment मे कहा था मे बूढ़ा हू, जिसे पता लगता है के आपकी उम्र जादा होगी), भगवान ने सायद गलते से, आदमी अपनी हवस पूरी करेले उसके बाद, उस औरत के हाथ मे भी बच्चा ना चाहे तो ख़ुद गीरा दे, उसकी ताक़त ना दी.

    या तो मंगवानने सही किया, दुनिया सायद चलती नहीं, पर आप जैसे, औरत से जूड़ी हर चीज़ को अनजाने मे गली देते रहै, ओर दूसरी तरफ़, एक comment मे कहेतो हो की, औरत के दर्जे के बारे मे Naseer Ahmed का article पढ़ो, आपको लगता है, जींस तरह की ज़बान लीखते हो, कोइ पढ़ेगा.

  •  kurbani is not just killing of animals it is something in which you have to feed animal like your family members.. after long time when u get affection for that particular animal then you have to sacrifice that animal for the sake of feeding poor peoples.. do not blame only muslims there are many companies like kfc and many others that are killing thousands of animals daily for their bussiness purpose then nobody spot them and muslims sacrifice once in a year just for feeding poors then u r having problem... sacrifice of animals on eid never cause pollution... according to islam blood should be burried in land and other residues should also be burried so that it does not causes any pollution in atmosphere and water bodies .. if peoples are not following rules that is not fault of islam... just imagine if cattles(excluding cows) are not killed then their population will increase drastically and then think about amount of greenry they require to feed themself that will also lead to deforestation....

  •  I unable to understand your writing or post . first off all just you you are a Muslim second thing you had written that love animal and third is haqoqoolibaad. 
    As a Muslim if you are having capacity to sacrifice you must have sacrifice animal as per you capacity to purchase for quarbaani.
    (Hazrat Ibrahim alaihis salam ki sunnat ko zindagi rakhne ke liye) you as a Muslim what you want to say ??? 
    Did you know how many slaughter house in India did you think that all are run by Muslim??
    Haqoqoolibaad ki baat karo phir Muslim pe ho rahe zulm ki baat karo . kaya hai haqoqoolibaad is ko pehle samjho Islam ki roshani mein naki RSs or Jews Looby ke nazariye se.

  • Killing of animals for food is same as plucking fruits from living plants , killing cattles for eating purpose is ok but not torturing them or ill treating them is forbidden in Islam , prophet has also laid down number of principles regarding our treatment towards plants , he prohibited us from chopping down any fruit bearing tree or the tree where people can take a rest under the shade and even told us not to urinate under any tree .
    By Tabrez Ali - 9/22/2016 1:21:33 PM

  • I think the writing of Mr.Sultan Shahin is issue based,is based on brutal massacres of animals during Bakr I'd.
    Mr.Zamiruddin his critic
    do not oppose him,but criticise by asking whyMr.Sultan is not writing against the Zionist torture against Muslims.
    No doubt the revolutionary and humanists all over the world stand with them.
    I think the editor New Age Islam also is not an exception.

    By Rakesh Lamba - 9/22/2016 12:10:50 PM

  • The word sacrifice is hardly relevant when animals are no more a commodity. Sacrifice is surrendering a possession as an offering to God e.g. Prophet Abraham (PBUH) was ordered to sacrifice his son and he was willing to do so but God gave him a sheep to sacrifice instead of his cherished progeny.

    What is happening now, the traders hoard animals of all types, even sick and lame. Thus millions of animals suffer unnecessarily at the hands of meat traders by enduring cruel, drawn-out journeys across the world to be slaughtered on arrival.

    Thousands of animals die en route from disease, heat exhaustion, hunger and stress. The others escape the intolerable conditions only to confront death. After torturous exposures to roadside trading places they are sold to the well to do Muslims for a premium price. They organise a butcher, not checking whether he is a practising Muslim and slaughter the animals for meat. Some Muslims diligently do distribute it to the needy. Others probably donate it to someone handy waiting to take it with little guarantee that it actually reaches the needy.

    Frankly, a large part of the meat ends up exchanging homes. Homes cook far more than they need to eat. The poor who do avail of the donated meat get far more than they need to eat. People get gifts of meat to add to what they already have. And the fact is, no one can eat so much.
    Is it a sacrifice of your cherished possession? or another commodity you traded and slaughtered as your obligation??

    By Rayees Mir - 9/22/2016 8:45:54 AM

  • yes Royal you idot, no I am not telling that is Manzural Haque, but Please , Manzural can you please tell me why Islamic scholars require two women गवाही in court, while only one man is enough.
    One man=Two women, why women is considered lesser creature or idot like Royl J, according to Islamic scholars.
    What in event of rape of women, two women has to watch to prove that rape was being committed, while one man is enough, if he sees it.
    women is lesser value creature and idot as well according to Muslim tradition ha.. ha..

    By Aayina - 9/22/2016 12:44:26 AM

  • Manzurul, do you know the saying “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” Muslim scholars are reluctant to criticize the US for not sending the boots on the ground as it is essentially a Sunny-Shia war. Do you want US to take a side either Sunny or Shia? I put it to you; do you want Assad to go or remain in Office as President? If you cannot answer this simple question then why do you criticise the West. Do you want to enjoy when a captured US soldier is beheaded in red jump suit? Hundreds of US soldiers died when trusted Afghan soldiers turned their guns against them. Do you want the same betrayal to continue in Syria?

    Let the rich Arab countries send their soldiers on the ground. At the moment US trust only the Kurdish Forces who stood against the onslaught of ISIS.

  • The Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the spirit of God. The main issue between God and us is not whether we go to McDonalds or a vegetarian restaurant. The issue is how we treat the creatures of God, whether men or animals.

    Australia had banned exporting live cattle to Indonesia after seeing the video footage of animal cruelty, at the expense of $320 million income. Again Australia banned to Vietnam. Now 80 CCTV cameras have been installed in slaughter houses.

    The French actress Brigitte Bardot who first acted nakedly in a movie, is an animal rights activist for the last 30 years; perhaps as a penance for the sin.

     We cannot claim to love God while we hate and abuse His creatures.

    By Royalj - 9/21/2016 6:11:58 AM

  • Look, the spirit of Bakrid is - sharing and not killing. Nobody from amongst the haters has a kind word to say about sharing, though quite a number of my Hindu friends call me up on Bakrid and almost request me to invite them to savour meat.Who are they and how are these hate-commentators so different from them, so as to create almost two distinctly exclusive categories? Or are they the same, only operating under two different mukhautas ? Anyway, as usual, my point is to focus on the finer aspects of Islam and I find the abusers pre-empt us from making any constructive suggestion. Of course there is scope of improvement in the performance of this ritual. But this veg-nonveg debate is entirely irrelevant here and could be mischievous. Because that's a broader global debate and I do not see any sign of non-vegetarians losing the debate.Their position is paramount.

  • @Mohammed Danish You call Mohammed Saheb Prophet and I call him Enlightened one. One who realized Truth.
    Two problems arise while conveying Truth. First Truth about Truth is it can't be said and which can be said is not truth coz Its very nature. Truth is infinite and world has Its limitation. Secondly, companions can't be equivalent to prophet as a receiver of truth. So problem arise only after departure of Enlightened one from the planet not during their lifetime. Whatever I am saying is applied not only to Islam but every religion of world. Sorry brothers,my intention is not to hurt faith of anyone but simply stating certain facts which is known to me.

    Killing innocent is a crime 
    and vegitables are also innocent rather more innocent than the animals coz they can express their pain with their voice.

    By Mohammed Danish - 9/20/2016 1:11:42 PM

  • @Dolly Passey In that sense you can call me Manuwadi too coz I am not against Verna system. Verna system was a psychological division of man's Nature . Basically humans are two types, introvert and extrovert. Introvert further divided in two. First one you can say beginner was known as Sudra with potentiality to become Brahmins. Likewise extrovert divided in Baishya and Kshatriya. Initially this system work perfectly but as usual everything degenerate with passage of time. This most scientific and psychological system perverted by two way. Horizontal division degenerated into vertical division of society and choice taken the form of Birth.
    Even today society is divided like that . Class taken the place of Verna. Now second point. I consider religion is realization and not following certain set of principles,rituals,dresses etc. That's cosmetic things and have nothing to with religion. Secondly religion is one and what you consider as Religions are sects. Have you ever given a thought why Truth which is one needed different Enlightened one to interpret differently at different space and time coz Truth too degenerated with time due to misinterpretation.

    By Indrajeet Singh - 9/20/2016 1:10:20 PM

  • @Indrajeet Singh , Chaman Lal what a strange biased logic put up by Mr Indrajeet Singh. war of mahabaratha was for truth and dharma. likewise many manuvadies justify battles of parshuram with kshatriyas. battles of vedas are likewise justified. but similar types of battles fought in other religions are called fanaticism . there should not be 2 sets of rules. lastly do you know that geeta contain s many verses in support of VARNA system
    By Dolly Passey - 9/20/2016 1:08:10 PM

  • Krishna cajoled Arjuna to fight Mahabharata War not driven by self interest but to preserve dharma, righteousness,justice. Situations was so worse that even daughter -in-law of Hastinapur was not safe. Now goading Arjuna to fight is coz he was warrior by Karma and came in battlefield to just fight the War but suddenly refused to fight coz he was frighten by seeing Strength of invisible Kaurava. His fear disguised as attachment to his family which was not justified. Krishna was higherself and knower of truth and all sermoning to persuade him. of course he was not persuaded but after seeing Truth, he accepted his superiority fought the War. Now sacrifice of animals to please God. How Allah can be pleased by sacrificing innocent animals is my question. I can't be agreed that an Enlightened person such as Mohammed can say so.
    By Indrajeet Singh - 9/20/2016 1:06:58 PM

  • @Indrajeet Singh Arjuna was cajoled to fight, kill men, devastate them. Arjuna resisted all reason and logic of Krishna. The ultimate weapon of faith was invoked on him and scumbing to faith he killed and killed men! What for?
    Killing of animals called sacrifice too is an act of faith.
    How it differs from each other?
    In one case it is the animal, in the other it is humans.
    It is difficult to say which one is better or worse.

    By Chaman Lal - 9/20/2016 1:05:00 PM

  • @Omesh Jalla Interpretation of religion can't be done by ignorant Maulana. Religion is realization. For interpreting any religious scripture like Quran required the person who reached the height of Mohammed. Then why he will interpret it. He will create another scripture like it. Remember the words if Krishna about his next reincarnation and query that how one will recognize him. He told that any Soul who is struggling to uplift the humanity you know I reincarnated.
    By Indrajeet Singh - 9/20/2016 1:02:00 PM

  • @Indrajeet Singh  Muhammad ibn Abdullah/ Krishan /Christ , what is common in them Mr Indrajeet singh sir.
    Sacrifice means sacrifice of animals by cutting their throats . You are mis-interpreting Islamic tenants by relating it to ego etc. You are trying to secularise Islam. Just confirm with some well learned muslim.

  • Excellent comments by Abdulrehman Kunil !
    By Manzurul Haque - 9/20/2016 12:54:53 PM

  • Religious bigots of every religion destroying core of it to serve their selfish narrow interest. People who are tree of humanity,should be icon of humanity made restricted to a particular sect. Let it be Mohammad,Christ, Krishna, Mahavira,Buddha etc. Actually problems lied in its origin itself coz knower of truth preach to ignorant. One fine example is Sermon of Geeta was given to Arjuna. Though Arjuna was one of the greatest worrier of time, had sound knowledge of religion and philosophy but couldn't understand that otherwise Geeta couldn't known to world. It was persistent questioning Of Arjuna was responsible for it. What I tried to say is that once person like Arjuna couldn't understand Geeta then what to expect others from it. Now on the post. If at all prophet Mohammed said anything for sacrifice that might be sacrifice of Ego which biggest hindrance in the way of mankind to perceive truth but in place of sacrificing it,we sacrifice innocent animals that too on the name of Allah,the ultimate truth.

Science proved that when plants are plucked they also cry. These cries can be heard through special instruments.. It is noteworthy that unlike humans plants do not have capability for sight and speech. On this argument vegetarians plead that plucking plants , fruits vegetables is not akin to killing animals. Argument is not impressive . Suppose a person kills a dumb and deaf man. Can he pled for lesser punishment . No the judge will award him even an harsher punishment for killing Deaf and Dumb man. 
    (2) From theological perspective almost all religious figures were non vegetarians. Hazrat Jesus (PUBH) was quite fond of fish. According to dalit icons like Dr Ambedkar , Periyar the great , kanchan Ilaih , VT Rajshekar etc are of the view that meat was widely consumed in ancient India by all classes and creeds. These icons wrote that in ancient India even “GODS” had eaten meat. These views are seconded by mainstream historians like Prof DN Jha , Romilla Thapar . Right wing and centrist historians like DD Kosambhi. Ishwari Prasad RC Mazumdar are of the view that vegetarianism gained popularity in India after the advent of Buddhism in India. Pandit Nehru accepted this fact in his book “Discovery of India”.

  •  A writeup on Bakrid by a Non-Muslim Tamilian:
    Today, Muslims celebrated their important festival...!
    Ah..! What a way to celebrate a festival..!
    They didn't fire crackers..! They didn't pollute the environment..!
    They didn't transform the streets and lanes into mega size dust bins..!
    They didn't fill the ponds, sea shores, lakes, wells with crudely dyed plastic materials. The water bodies remained clean...!
    They didn't break this and that materials in the roads and streets. Pedestrians felt secure...!
    They didn't burn household articles in the middle of the road. They didn't pollute the air....!
    The Police officials who assembled to witness their prayers were never attacked. Not a single official returned home with bleeding head...!
    They invoked neither fear nor tension. Nobody closed their shops early fearing them....!
    The cinema theatres didn't witness nasty crowds today.
    The government run wine shops didn't register any extra-ordinary sales today....!
    Today they feasted with family and friends. They ate well and happily shared their food with others too...!
    Today they sacrificed animals and happily distributed two third of the meat among their relatives, friends and the needy poor without any discrimination based on caste, class or religion...!
    They used the skins of the sacrificed animals for commercial value and people's needy..!
    Ah..! What a way to celebrate a festival...!
    Their festivals bring enormous blessings to them and each and every human being..! 
    Ah..! What a way to celebrate festival...!

    By Mathews Manoah - 9/20/2016 8:34:40 AM

  • Being vegetarian or non vegetarian is a personal choice. It should not be related with any religion or religious festivals. No religion preaches to kill any creature of God. All prophets tried their best to stop killing of living entities. But as they could not, so changed the philosophy of STOP to the philosophy of REDUCE. So, they teaches to eat only on the day of the specific ritual(s) without wasting and cruelty to the innocent animals. A religious mindset does not need any religion, they have sympathy and empathy for all. And no religion can convert a Raksok or bigot into a human being.
    By Abhayananda Medhi - 9/20/2016 8:30:17 AM

  • Eating meat as food is one thing, but killing them in an inhuman way is brutal. Whatever religious function it may be, it should be abandoned. This is cruelty. Sacrifice to the Goddess Kali or others also should be avoided.

    By Jeet Bhargava - 9/19/2016 8:53:34 PM

  • Here sacrifice in my view is symbolic and must be done in a different way by foregoing something material than sacrificing a living creature. Why it doesn't dignify renouncing something you like the most like the Hindus do when they go to Gaya for pitrtarpan and sacrifice any eatable/object they like the most.? Here sacrifice per se means giving up something dear to you. Sadly, the interpretation is taken to animal sacrifice. Many Hindus do animal sacrifice to appease Goddess Kali....both the forms of sacrifice are repulsive and unbearable witnessing the butcher's axe. Animal sacrifice without torture is equally reprehensible. Killing itself is against human upbringing.

    By Veturi Sriharsha - 9/19/2016 8:47:14 PM

  • Interesting thread. Those who are citing Hindu tradition of animal sacrifice during Dussehra to justify Bakreed forget that people who criticize Bakreed are equally critical of the Hindu tradition as well. What the Vedas or the Quraan mentioned is immaterial.
    A progressive society should decide what to follow -- modern tenets or rules formulated hundreds of years ago.
    There are many Hindu temples I know where district administrations have in the past tried to ban ritualistic animal sacrifices in a big scale. They might not have been very syccessful because of opposition by the orthodox class, but at least there have been efforts. But I don't think one can ever imagine any administration anywhere in this country even thinking of taking such a step before Bakreed.

  • जमात वाले प्रोपगैंडा चला रहे हैं - फलां ने अरबी बद्दू मजहब कुबूल कर लिया ढिमकाना ने आसमानी किताब पर ईमान लाया, आज इसकी हकीकत बताता हूँ :-
    दरअसल यह इनलोगों का फ्रेस्ट्रेसन है, दुनिया भर में रोज-रोज की बदनामी से परेशान जमातवाले मोरल बुस्टअप के लिए इस तरह के शिगूफे छोड़ते रहते हैं, ताकि कम से कम हिंदुस्तान में इज्जत बची रहे। यही फ्रेस्टेट जाहिल आपको 52 इस्लामिक मुल्क गिनाते दीखते रहते हैं, पर यह नहीं बताते की सभी 52 पिद्दी-पिद्दी से मुल्क आज मार-काट कर जहन्नम माफिक बन चुके हैं।
    हकीकत यह है की विदेशों में हिंदुस्तान से ज्यादा लोग अरबी बद्दू मजहब की असलियत से वाकिफ हैं, दहशतगर्दी और नफरत के जख्म कहीं हमारे आपसे ज्यादा वे विदेशी झेल रहे हैं।
    जिस तरह हिंदुस्तान में कई गैर मुसलमान फ़िल्मी हस्ती और राजनेता हाजी-पीर के दरगाह और मजारों पर चादरें चढाने जाया करते हैं, रोजे-इफ्तार में शामिल होते हैं तो उनकी पोशाक इस्लामिक होती है, सर पर जालीदार टोपी लगाया करते हैं, लेकिन भारत में उनके बारे में जमात यह अफवाह नहीं फैला सकता की उसने मजहब कुबूल कर लिया, क्योंकि तुरंत न्यूज़ पेपर की हेडलाइन्स बन जाएगी --- दूध का दूध पानी का पानी हो जायेगा।
    पर विदेशों में जमात के लोग ताक में रहते हैं, कहीं किसी हॉलीवुड सेलिब्रिटी का मस्जिद के आस-पास फटकने की तस्वीर मिल जाये, और उसका इस्तेमाल हिंदुस्तान में किया जाये। इस बेवकूफी की वजह से कई हॉलीवुड सेलिब्रिटी मस्जिद का आस पास से भी नहीं गुजरती नहीं तो इस्लाम के ठेकेदार उनका फ़ोटो खैंच पर पोस्ट लगा देंगे "देखा टॉम क्रूज ने मजहब कबूल लिया" ! ऐक्ट्रेस लिंडसे लोहान के हाथ में कुरान पकड़ा कर फोटो खिंच उसे मुस्लिम साबित कर दिया गया था, बेचारी साल भर इस बाबत जबाब देती रही ;-)
    इस्लाम से रिलेटेड किसी भी सच्ची जानकारी के लिए हमेशा इस्लामिक विकिपीडिया पर सच्चाई चेक किया कीजिये :- wikiislam.net/wiki/Main_Page
    1) माइकल जैक्सन ने इस्लाम नहीं कुबूल नहीं किया था। सबूत :- wikiislam.net/.../Michael_Jackson_(Conversion_to...
    2) हॉलीवुड एक्टर Will Smith के मुसलमान बनने की खबर भी झूठी निकली wikiislam.net/wiki/Will_Smith_(Conversion_to_Islam)
    3) चाँद पर पहला कदम रखने वाले नील आर्मस्ट्रांग के मुसलमान बनने और चाँद पर अजान सुनने की खबर भी झूठी निकली :- wikiislam.net/.../Neil_Armstrong_(Conversion_to...
    ऐसी बीसियों किस्से-कहानियाँ जमात हर रोज बनाती है, एक ने Quran में दर्ज चाँद के दो टुकड़े करने वाली कहानी को सच्चा दिखाने के लिए Photoshop से ही चाँद के टुकड़े कर डाले, और न्यूज़ रिफरेन्स NASA का दे दिया। मजबूरन NASA को इस बाबत सफाई देना पड़ा और उसने इन जाहिलों के लिए बहुत गन्दे शब्द का इस्तेमाल किया। सबूत :- muslimsandtheworld.com/nasa-confirms-that.../
    इसी तरह कुरान में दर्ज वाक्या "पृथ्वी चपटी है और क़यामत के रोज सूरज पश्चिम से उगेगा" जैसी बातों को सच साबित करने के लिए ये जाहिल नकली पेपर कटिंग तक तैयार कर लेते हैं। रिफरेन्स के लिए वही अटैच्ड पेपर कटिंग देखिये ;-)
    पर हाँ बॉक्सर माइक टाइसन ने इस्लाम कबूल किया है, सच्ची बात है। पर जमात वाले आपको यह नहीं बताएँगे की रेप के चार्ज में जेल में सजा काटते वक्त इस्लाम कबूल किया। क्या एक रेपिस्ट के मजहब ज्वाइन करने से मजहब की इज्जत अफजाई हुई ?
    सच्चाई यह है की कोई नहीं कबूल कर रहा अरबी बद्दू मजहब। जहाँ तक संभव हो रहा है नामी-गिरामी हस्ती इस दलदल से बाहर निकल रहे हैं। दुनिया भर के सैकड़ों नामी-गिरामी हस्ती ने इस्लाम छोड़ दूसरे मजहब को अपनाया। नाम और डिटेल्स चेक करें :- wikiislam.net/wiki/Notable_Former_Muslims'

Didn't you lie to your Hindu wife by not telling her that a muslim can't marry a non-muslim. Why are you keeping her in dark? You are a bloody idiot Mr Sultan Shaheen , Aren't you?Qurbani is a part of Eid Al Azha festival. You are not above the Quran and the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.So stop playing with words. And mind your own way of life. I have shown you the mirror of your personal life that you are a liar and imposter ( in your marriage case ) . So mind your life. Did Prophet Muhammad say :- "Not to do Qurbani ?" or "Did He say do the Qurbani ? " ohhh I know you think , Bastard Sultan Shahin , that the Quran be Amended according to your wishes and choices. You yourself a bloody transgressor.

    My comment dated 15.09.2016 in these pages explains the same to some extent about the reasons, religious as well as social. Also, my later comment may be seen which examines why only during Eid-Al-Azha there is so much noise on this subject although everyday so many animals and birds are killed for food.. One lawyer from UP went to the extent of filing a PIL to stop the sacrifice.

  • बकराईद सिर्फ खाने पीने का मसला नही हे।
    इसके साथ और भी कुछ बिंदु जुड़े हुए हे जो की राष्ट्रहित में उपयोगी हे।
    जेसे ईद उल अजहा के मौके पे लाखो जानवरों की कुरबानी होती हे जिससे देश का खरबों रुपियों का चमड़े का व्यवसाय तरक्क़ी करता है … 
    उन्ही जानवरों की खालो से मन्दिरों और मठो में श्रधा से बजाए जाने वाले ढोल से लगाकर सेनिको के वस्त्र एवं देश की रक्षा में काम आने वाले हथियारो के कवर घोड़ों के ज़ीन बनाये जाते हें जानवरों कि खाल से बन्ने वाली वस्तुएँ जिसे देश का हर व्यक्ति उपयोग करता हे जेसे :- बेल्ट/पॉकेट /बटुआ /पर्स/कंपनी बेग, जेकेट, जूते, चप्पलें बनाई जाती हे
    जानवर कि हड्डी शक्कर बनाते समय उस को साफ करने के काम आती हे और उसके कई अंगो से केप्सुल के कवर बनाए जाते हे तभी केप्सुल नोन्वेज होता हे।

    जानवर की आंते खाई नही जाती, उसकी आंतो से धागे बनाए जाते हे, उसी धागे द्वारा अस्पतालों में दुर्घटना में घायल लोगो के कटे फटे अंगो कों सिला जाता हे। जब कोई ईद विरोधी, दुसरो के खानपान में नुक्ता चीनी करने वाला, जेविक असंतुलन से बेखबर व्यक्ति जब अस्पताल में दर्द से कराह रहा होता हे तब उसी धागो से उसकी चमड़ी सिली जाती हे और बाद में वही केप्सुल दिया जाता हे ।।।

    क़ुरबानी के जानवर के गोश्त के तीन 3 हिस्से किये जाते हे जिसमे से एक हिस्सा उन मिलने वालो को दिया जाता हे जिनके घर ज़िबह का जानवर नही होता,एवं एक हिस्सा गरीबो यतीमो को दिया जाता हे जिससे उन्हें भरपूर प्रोटिन एवं ओमेगा 3 , फेटी एसिड,आयरन,केल्सिलम इत्यादि तत्वों का पोषण मिलता हे, विश्व स्तर पे गरीब लोगो में कुपोषण का स्तर जानवरों के बराबर ही हे, इस त्यौहार की बदोलत करोड़ो गरीबो को अच्छा और सेहत के लिए बेहद मुफीद भोजन मिलता हे…
    देश के लाखो ग्रामीण किसान जिनमे ज्यादातर गरीब दलित वर्ग हे
    जिनका खेती के साथ पशुपालन का व्यवसाय हे उन्हें ईद के मौके पर प्रत्येक जानवर के चार गुना अधिक पेसे मिलते हे जिससे उनके पूरे साल की रोटी का इन्तेज़ाम हो जाता हे। बकरा ईद के मौके पर हज का सीजन होता हे जिससे एयर इंडिया एवं देश की निजी हज कम्पनियों को करोड़ों रुपियों का फायदा होता हे।

    *कुल मिलाकर बकरा ईद पर्व "राष्ट-हित" में बहुत उपयोगी हे।*

    If you argue as you can see thier are many that will Jump from Quran (or other relgious book)  and bring science then again jump on Quran (or other relgious book) to prove their point.

    The biggest thing animal killer will argue is that plant also had life, they can cry or have joy, and this was proved scientifically non other than our Indian Jagdischandra Bose and is alway written in our Hindu mythology.

    Read my comment, it will help to avoid conversation on matter of food.

    If you have too much confusion than read the book name "God Speaks" from Mehar Baba, he had explain very well the cycles of life and many questions of life will be answered, this book is useful those who believe in rebirth not for who belive in one shot of life and not wanted to responsible for their own karma and actions on other.

  • I like argument and crying of Manzural Hque that Muslims in India are poor, that is  the reason they cannot eat meat, I wish they became rich and eat as much as they want.

    If our Indian Muslim brothers  get enough extra meat send some to our Pakistani brothers they have same complain that they are forced to became vegetarian because of poorness, may Hindu conspiracy in Pakistan.

    Happy to understand that Indian poor Hindus can afford vegetarianism, sorry for poor Muslim brothers.

    Well add another point to Manzural Haque, when I was kid Muslims use to tell us that you Hindus had raised the prices of meat since Hindus have started to eat meat, as usual blame others for any Muslim suffering but they never want to see the population of Muslim that can be result for not having meat, so what about Pakistan? 

    I admire his observation of under the banner of non-Muslim( which aboviously Hindus in India) that male goes and eat meat outside, which is absoulatley wright. But the time is changing Hindus women's and family has started to make and eat at home, it is sad news for you Muslims, may be your and mine poor Muslims get chance of sniffing meat Will be left out.

    I also admire his understanding of ecosystem balance to favour strong argument of eating meat, but I feel pity that if he and many like him, had extended idea of food balance and rather than arguing meat eating is good for human society so food chain and supply remain in balance and our poor Muslim brothers would have meat or atleast medium rich can afford it to buy for just poor Muslim.

    By VM Upadhyaya - 9/17/2016 4:08:59 AM

  • For Hindu Sisters and Brothers.

    Eating any plant is also killing can be said, so does it prove and sanctify eating meat.

    Food is matter of choice of diet.

    Matter of fact is that any living force consume other living force to remain alive, so our whole existence is based on killing other creature.

    But here are some more thoughtful words from Jaggi Vasudev, which will stop arguing with Muslim brothers who will constantly want to prove that meat eating is wright and super( Not all Muslim, there is marginal community of Muslim getting vegetarian out of love and compassion)

    Jaggi Vasudev words: Did you find It Is easy to run complicated software product on another Advanced OS or a simple software on Advance OS.

    Plants base food is like simple software and animals base food is like complex software.

    Let our Muslim brothers eat or even Hindus who like to consume meat do not argue. 

    The consequence is on who is eating meat as diet not on who is consuming.

    Another thing which I counter argue of Zakir Naik logic( may be many who are consuming meat had same argument but Zakir Naik is symbolic representation of all this people)

    Zakir Naik logic: God had givin that teeth that carnivorous animal has, so we can consume meat.

    My argument is: If that was the case than God must have givin the teeth that can puncture the animal and torn apart like other carnivorous animal do but our teeth can only chew only once it is cooked. Humans cannot consume meat directly if they can they would have been eating like that.

    Cooking of raw meat proves that humans had develop this scientific approach, but absured and lustfull meat eaters used God so can do this practise forever for all people, and can impose their will.

    If you see the bible a book from Abrahmic faith, the God is blood thirsty, he ask ask animal sacrifice, so Abel brings animal flesh, but Cain bring Veges, now God became angry on Cain and show love towards the Abel, this itself shows the sickness of Abrhamic God.

    This Abrhanimc God created first Fitna and jealous feeling among two brothers, and than Cain kill Abel, so Hindu brothers had to understand the mindset of Abrhamic God so do theire followers.

  • I remember the times in my childhood when there were very few families who sacrificed on Bakrid and mostly it was no more than a single goat/sheep. Nowadays, it looks like almost every family sacrifices more than one animal.

    I know for a certainty that poor people who do not have fridges (many of them do) get so much mutton from those who have sacrificed that they cannot consume it in a day or two.  When the mutton turns bad, they just throw it away.  

    The worst thing that can happen is that you kill an animal and throw away the mutton. I cannot imagine a bigger sin and I dare say that we are guilty of this sin.

Science proved that when plants are plucked they also cry. These cries can be heard through special instruments.. It is noteworthy that unlike humans plants do not have capability for sight and speech. On this argument vegetarians plead that plucking plants , fruits vegetables is not akin to killing animals. Argument is not impressive . Suppose a person kills a dumb and deaf man. Can he pled for lesser punishment . No the judge will award him even an harsher punishment for killing Deaf and Dumb man. 
    (2) From theological perspective almost all religious figures were non vegetarians. Hazrat Jesus (PUBH) was quite fond of fish. According to dalit icons like Dr Ambedkar , Periyar the great , kanchan Ilaih , VT Rajshekar etc are of the view that meat was widely consumed in ancient India by all classes and creeds. These icons wrote that in ancient India even “GODS” had eaten meat. These views are seconded by mainstream historians like Prof DN Jha , Romilla Thapar . Right wing and centrist historians like DD Kosambhi. Ishwari Prasad RC Mazumdar are of the view that vegetarianism gained popularity in India after the advent of Buddhism in India. Pandit Nehru accepted this fact in his book “Discovery of India”.

  • Assalam Alaikum to everybody,
    Mr ​Sultan Sh​ahin's comments that instead of sacrificing animals on the occasion of Eid ul Azha to commemorate the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim, Muslims should donate money equivalent to the price of an animal  to the poor. For Muslims all over the world, the example of the Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him) is the best one. The Prophet himself sacrificed animals on the occasion of Bakrid, celebrated on the 10th day of Zulhijja. His companions also sacrificed animals following in the footsteps of the Prophet. According to the Prophet, the best `ibadat' on the day of Bakrid is slaughtering of animals, al beit, by those having the financial capacity to do it. Allah Taala also says in the Quran that that neither the blood nor the flesh of the animal reaches Him but it is the piety (taqwa) that reaches Allah Taala, meaning thereby that `qurbani' or slaughtering of the animal to please Allah only is acceptable. There should be no pomp and show in the `qurbani'. Is Sultan Shahin more compassionate to animals than Allah Taala and His Prophet that he is making absurd suggestions to mislead Muslims.
    I don't know from where Mr  Shahin has come to know that sacrificing animals can be replaced by donating money equivalent to the price of the animal.  If this is `NewAgeIslam' as Mr Shahin would like to project, it would be rejected altogether. I think he has taken upon himself a full time job to mislead Muslims as well as non-Muslims about true Islam and Muslims through his website published in different languages. 
     In fact, it is the same thing which is being suggested by RSS and those belonging to saffron ideology. They are also using the services of government agencies now in propagating their point of view among Muslims. 
    Mr Shahin's sources of finance needs to be investigated to find out he is managing to run such a large scale operation. But the government will never do it because he is engaged in creating confusion about Islam and its teachings, unlike Zakir Naik who preached true Islam. Mr Shahin also managed to speak from the platform of the United Nations that indicates his clout in the government.
    May Allah protect us from the machinations of those trying to misguide Muslims on important religious issues.
    Syed Khalique Ahmed,

    By Syed Khalique Ahmed - 9/16/2016 8:36:25 AM

  • I find that many of the commentators are of the view that there should be no slaughter of animals during Eid-Al-Azha (Baqraeid).

    Sometime back a learned friend asked me a Question about Sarifice of Animals on Eid-Al-Azha. I gave the following answer. I am sure those who advocate "No Sacrifice of Animals" at all may like to read this. It is here:

    Q: What about the millions of animals that are needlessly slaughtered in the name of God during Bakri-Id? When God permitted Abraham to sacrifice a ram instead of his son, he did not ask all people to do this every year. Why can it not be changed in more civilized times?

     Answer: (Better, call it Explanation): First of all your use of the word “needlessly” is not correct. It is not that the animals are sacrificed just for fun and the meat is wasted. The meat is consumed. So it cannot be called needlessly. Everyday so many animals are slaughtered or killed for use as food. Is there any difference between daily slaughter/killing and slaughter on Idul Azha (called-Baqraeid in India and few adjoining nations)? I think there is no difference as far as slaughtering or animal life is concerned. On day to day basis animals are used as food and on Baqraeid also it is used as food. But there is a big difference in purpose between the two types of slaughtering. On normal days the animals are slaughtered/ killed for profit. On Baqraeid there is no motive of profit. In fact only those who raise and nurture the animals get profit. You may be aware that thousands of families survive on the profession i.e. they raise and nurture the animals and they keep the best ones for Baqraeid. They get on an average almost double price on Baqraeid as compared to other days. Reasons are many. First for Baqraeid the smaller animals must be of one year age and in case of larger animals the specified age is five years. On day to day basis animal of any age may be slaughtered/killed for sale of meat. Another issue is that animals for sacrifice must be healthy, free from any injury or defect etc. That is why people like to sacrifice good looking animals and they pay premium price for them. That is why those who rear the animals keep the best animals for Baqraeid and they get value for the animals.   

    In the market at present the mutton is about Rs 350 to 400 per kg. Even if one wants to buy 200 g, the cost will be Rs 70/80. A family which earns Rs 100 a day cannot afford that. On the occasion of Baqraeid they get the meat as charity and they can enjoy the luxury for at least during the three four days of Baqraeid when large numbers of animals are sacrificed by Muslims.

    Here I am quoting few verses from the Qur’an in this connection.   

     And for every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies, that they may mention the Name of Allâh over the beast of cattle that He has given them for food. And your Ilâh (God) is One Ilâh (God - Allâh), so you must submit to Him Alone (in Islâm). And (O Muhammad SAW)  give glad tidings to the Mukhbitûn (those who obey Allâh with humility and are humble from among the true believers of Islâmic Monotheism), (Qur’an 22: 34).

    Whose hearts are filled with fear when Allâh is mentioned and As-Sabirûn [who patiently bear whatever may befall them (of calamities)]; and who perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and who spend (in Allâh’s Cause) out of what We have provided them (Qur’an 22:35).

    And the Budn (cows, oxen, or camels driven to be offered as sacrifices by the pilgrims at the sanctuary of Makkah) We have made them for you as among the Symbols of Allâh, wherein you have much good. So mention the Name of Allâh over them when they are drawn up in lines (for sacrifice). Then, when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat thereof, and feed the poor who does not ask (men), and the beggar who asks (men). Thus have We made them subject to you that you may be grateful. (Qur’an 22:36)

    It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allâh, but it is piety from you that reaches Him. Thus have We made them subject to you that you may magnify Allâh for His Guidance to you. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad SAW) to the Muhsinûn  (doers of good) (Qur’an 22:37)

     From the above quoted verses it is clear that God does not get anything when animals are sacrificed. It is actually the piety of people which is tested. In the verse 22:36 it is clear that the meat of the sacrificed animals is not only for those who perform the sacrifice, it is also for the poor. In fact the suggested and preferred practice is that the meat is divided into three parts. One part is kept for the consumption of the family which performs the sacrifice; one part is for relatives and friends, especially those who are not in a position to do the sacrifice. The purpose is that they too get opportunity to enjoy the delicacy. Otherwise it will happen so that family X will give to family Y and Y will give back to X. The end result will be that no one will give to anyone. The third part is strictly for poor but not for professional beggars (see above, the verse 22:36). That is how the poor get the meat at least on those three days when sacrifice is done. In the second and third parts i.e. for friends/relatives and for poor there is no restriction that it can be given to only Muslims. The same can be given to anyone who is interested. That is meant to have better ties between different people.  

     Now the question is why on the occasion of Baqraeid only there is so much talk about the sacrifice and animals’ rights? Reason is our media and also some irresponsible Muslims, who contribute to that. Everyday so many animals are killed/slaughtered. But media does not show them and does not talk about them. On the occasion of Baqraeid they never miss the opportunity just because it is fanciful and more so because it is connected to the Muslim community. On Dussehra, Sarhul, Holi and so many other occasions and also in so many temples on normal days large numbers of animals are killed by non-Muslims. But there is no news about those killings. Also, some mistake is there on the part of the Muslims. There are some Muslims who are interested in showing off their wealth. They purchase goats at exorbitant price and then they stand with them, get photographed and give interviews for newspapers and TV channels. It becomes more fanciful news for the media. In fact the practice is totally against the teachings of Islam. Islam totally prohibits showing off in any field. Even in Namaaz (daily prayers) if someone does the Namaaz in a way that people may look at him/her and appreciate the Namaaz for the length or any other reason, the Namaaz is not acceptable to Allah. In case of charity too it is best that it should not be made public. In proverbial sense the best suggested course is that if the right hand gives, the left hand should not come to know of the same. Obviously, people who indulge in such show of wealth are not performing sacrifice in real sense. They want name and fame. Obviously, the purpose is defeated. Rest is with Allah.

     One last aspect- some people say that why cannot Muslims give up eating meat? The answer is simple. Are there only Muslims who consume meat? If you go by statistics more than 95% of the meat worldwide is consumed by non-Muslims. Even in India most of the meat and chicken slaughtered/killed daily are consumed by non-Muslims. Generally, Indian Muslims are poorer compared to other communities. Most of them cannot afford something which is Rs 350 to 400 per kg. A random visit to a meat/chicken shop can bring out the point clearly. Another point is that even in those localities where Muslims are not present or in extremely small numbers, one can find large numbers of meat/chicken shops. After all who are the customers for those shops? Even in restaurants and other eating places most of the non-veg. food is consumed by non-Muslims. Muslims generally visit only those eateries about which they are aware that only Halaal meat is served i.e. meat or chicken etc. which are from birds/animals slaughtered by Islamic (also, called the Jewish) method. There are more restaurants and eateries serving non-veg. food about which such information is not available. As a result most Muslims shun from those places. Then the question is-who consume the non-veg. food in those eateries? There is one interesting side of it. In so many families I personally know, meat is not cooked at home. But male members enjoy the same freely outside. Female members are denied in the name of religion/ritual/tradition etc. In Muslim families there is nothing like that.

     There is still another point. If eating meat is not good as animals or birds are to be killed, should we eat only plants and plant products? But the question is- are the plants not living? You ask a biologist and you will come to know that plants are also living organisms. People know it well. And we have to kill the plants to be consumed. For that matter even milk should not be consumed. Nature produces the milk for the young animals. If we take part of the milk and allow the calves to consume the rest, it is OK. But what is that we do? We take away all the milk. Even injections are administered to force the animals to fetch the entire milk. In turn we force the calves to eat grass or straw. Is it humane? Can we do it with human babies? But it does happen freely with animals. Let me tell you one more interesting fact which may surprise many. In certain tribal belts there is so much poverty that lactating women sell their milk by mixing the same with cow or buffalo milk just to get some money. Also, it has been an age old tradition that when women in rich families gave birth to babies, they did not feed them as the women had the idea (wrong or right?) that by breast-feeding their body could go out of shape. So, some poor woman was found with newly born child. She was paid to feed the baby of the rich family. As a result her own child was deprived of the mother’s milk. Can we consider it humane? Just one more example- the eggs that we relish are meant for reproduction of the birds (hens or ducks in Indian context) as they contain the zygotes i.e. miniature birds. But we grab them and consume. Another interesting side of it is that the hens are kept in cages without cocks. As a result the expense which could be there in nurturing the cocks is saved, but, at what cost?  It is done by forcing the hens to live without sex. We know it very well that all living organisms want sex. When we force celibacy on the hens, can we consider it humane? But it gives one more consolation to our ego. People consider such eggs as ‘Vegetarian Eggs’. So, even those people who do not consume non-veg. food otherwise do not hesitate to consume those eggs.

    Then I would also like to draw your attention towards the case of tigers, leopards, cheetahs and for that matter most of the birds, lizards, snakes, spiders etc. They kill other animals big or small and eat. Even the cat we keep so dear is always looking for opportunity to kill a rat, mouse, lizard or squirrel. Dogs also kill and eat if they get a chance. That is the rule of nature. Can we make them vegetarian? If we want to stop killing of all animals, we have to eliminate all these preying species. Then what about the food chain and the ecosystem balance? The importance of these preying animals cannot be overemphasized in maintaining the balance in the ecosystems. You may be aware that in the Andaman forests, spotted deer population has become a threat to the survival of the forests, just because there are no preying carnivores. The deer were not there originally. Someone carried few of them and let them into the forest to add beauty and variety. Now the same deer population has grown so much that they are threatening the survival of forests. In fact at one time there was a move to declare the deer as vermin so that they could be culled. In several countries animals in large numbers are culled regularly to keep their population under control. Also, people may argue that we must desist from killing flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches, snakes and all sorts of pests. After all these are also living organisms. Then we should also not use antibiotics or anti-worms drugs as they kill microbes and other living organisms.

  • Why to apply our own precious mind while local mullahs are there to dictate the mandate ?
    By Rajkamal Goswami - 9/15/2016 1:38:52 PM

  • There is no reason why the animals should be treated in cruel manner. It is not permitted in Islam. But the question: will it not be better if in place of meat the poor are given money on the eve of Baqra-eid? (One third of meat is compulsorily to be given to poor and indigent.)

    Answer: Some people may feel so. But it is doubtful that there will be the same benefits. One thing is that animals are to be sacrificed as desired by Allah. The matter has been dealt in detail in the last answer. Even from social point of view, it may not be the correct approach for various reasons. If money is given, there is no guarantee on what the money will be spent? It may be spent for something which is not of the liking of the entire family. For example, in most of the poor families the women and children have no say. The male heads of the families do what they like. It is quite common to observe that the family members do not get food but the male members go for liquor with whatever money they have. In many such families the women and children also work. The earnings are taken by the male members and irrespective of the condition if food is there or not those people vile away the money on liquor, gambling, prostitution etc. Hence, giving money will not be of any use in most of the conditions. If meat (or for that matter any other food item) is given, chances are bright that the entire families will get opportunity to consume that. You might have seen people begging with small children who are injured or with wounds/sores etc. Out of sympathy people give lams to such people. Once I found a person with a small child begging in front of our mosque. He had a child of about two years with bandaged head. He was asking people to help for the treatment of the child. I asked him to accompany me with the child and took him to a nearby medical shop. I asked the shop owner to give the person the best ointment and other medicines for the wound. He gave and I paid the money. I took care that I opened all the containers/tubes before handing over. When that person left the shop the shop owner told me that the person would not apply the medicines. He explained to me that the child with the wound was a source of income for the person. I was not convinced. But to my surprise after few months I found the same person with the same child in the same condition in front of the mosque and begging showing the wound to the people coming out of the mosque. I could realize that the shop-owner was right. In fact I walked towards him he became nervous and then he left the place.

    I do not know what he did of the medicines which I had purchased for the child. But I could realize that those beggars are really professional beggars and they are not interested in doing anything else. Actually fault is on our part too. We give alms to those beggars and thus encourage begging. In this regard I would like to remind my friends that in Delhi it is quite common to find small children begging on traffic signals. Also, women with small children and empty feeding bottles in hands are there. Obviously, people feel pity and give money. On observing closely I could find that those women and children are permanent fixtures on the traffic signals. Only change is that they keep on exchanging their positions from one area to another after some duration so as to deceive people. Also, I was told by a hawker that the children are also available on rent for few hours to facilitate begging. I expect similar conditions may be in other cities too. That is why Qur’an has clear instructions regarding Zakaat. The important instructions are:

    It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and each and every act of obedience to Allâh, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allâh, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets[1] and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-Masâkîn (the poor), and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set slaves free, performs As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât ), and gives the Zakât, and who fulfil their covenant when they make it, and who are patient in extreme poverty and ailment (disease) and at the time of fighting (during the battles). Such are the people of the truth and they are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious) (Qur’an 2:177).

    If you disclose your Sadaqât (alms-giving), it is well; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, that is better for you. (Allâh) will expiate you some of your sins. And Allâh is Well-Acquainted with what you do (Qur’an 2:271).

    (Charity is) for Fuqarâ (the poor), who in Allâh’s Cause are restricted (from travel), and cannot move about in the land (for trade or work). The one who knows them not, thinks that they are rich because of their modesty. You may know them by their mark, they do not beg of people at all. And whatever you spend in good, surely, Allâh knows it well (Qur’an 2:273).

    Note: Verse 177 is more important. If you read the explanation of the verse you will find this: "In this respect , also, our duties take various forms, which are shown in reasonable gradation: our kith and kin; orphans (including any persons who are without support or help); people who are in real need but who never ask (it is our duty to find them out, and they come before those who ask); the stranger, who is entitled to laws of hospitality; the people who ask and are entitled to ask, i.e. not merely lazy beggars.............."

    The lazy i.e. professional beggars who do not want to work or do something to earn are excluded. The purpose is obvious. Professional begging must be discouraged. It becomes a way of life and generally continues from generation to generation. It is a big social evil. In fact professional beggary gives birth to many other vices like trafficking of people, especially children. I am confident you have seen the famous film “Slum Dog Millionaire”. The film depicted the vices prevalent in the society. One of them was the abduction of children and their maiming and blinding to use them for beggary. Every year so many children go missing in our country. No one knows how many of them end up with broken limbs & feet, blinded eyes etc. just for begging. If we do not give alms to anyone and everyone, this vice will certainly reduce, if not finish.

  • Religious bigots of every religion destroying core of it to serve their selfish narrow interest. People who are tree of humanity,should be icon of humanity made restricted to a particular sect. Let it be Mohammad,Christ, Krishna, Mahavira,Buddha etc. Actually problems lied in its origin itself coz knower of truth preach to ignorant. One fine example is Sermon of Geeta was given to Arjuna. Though Arjuna was one of the greatest worrier of time, had sound knowledge of religion and philosophy but couldn't understand that otherwise Geeta couldn't known to world. It was persistent questioning Of Arjuna was responsible for it. What I tried to say is that once person like Arjuna couldn't understand Geeta then what to expect others from it. Now on the post. If at all prophet Mohammed said anything for sacrifice that might be sacrifice of Ego which biggest hindrance in the way of mankind to perceive truth but in place of sacrificing it,we sacrifice innocent animals that too on the name of Allah,the ultimate truth.

  • It has been recorded that the Messenger of Allah (saws) performed a total of four Umrahs and one Hajj pilgrimage.

    Umrah 1: 6th  Hijri, after the Treaty of Hudaibiya. Although he was not allowed to visit the Kaaba by the polytheists of Makkah to perform Umrah, it is still counted as an Umrah. He came out of the Ehram, shaved his head, and sacrificed his hadi (animal) and went back to Medina. The deal made with the polytheists, that he would return to Medina, and come back the next year for his Umrah.

    Umrah 2: 7th  Hijri, as per the Treaty of Hudaibiyah. It is called Umrah and not the Hajj as the prophet Mohammad (saws) was not allowed to enter Makkah and perform the rituals of Hajj. He (saws) and the companions sacrificed the animals as they had brought with the intention of sacrificing, and they did not sacrifice animals as a Rukn of Hajj.  

    Umrah 3. 8th  Hijri, after returning from the Battle of Hunain.

    Umrah 4: 10th  Hijri, along with the Hajj.

    Until 8th  Hijrah, Makkah was under the rule and control of his enemies, the Quraish; thus, obviously he was not allowed to perform the Hajj. After the Muslims conquered Makkah in 8th Hijrah, the muslims had control over Makkah and thus the Kaabah. In the 9th year after Hijrah, Abu Bakr was made the Ameer ul Hajj by Prophet Mohamed (saws), and later Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) was sent from Makkah to recite the newly revealed Surah Taubah, in which Allah declared that no mushriks (polytheists) were hereby allowed to visit the Sacred House of Allah.

    By Raihan Nezami - 9/14/2016 11:31:25 AM

  • Giving to charity will meet the requirements of Taqwa more than sacrificing an animal especially if the amount given is more than the price of the animal. For example, if animal sacrifice costs Rs 8000, donate 10,000 and not 7000.

    Sacrificing animals is as old a rite as civilization itself and made sense when there was no concept of money. 

    The Quran talks about sacrifice only as a rite of the hajj and not as Bakrid. It made sense as the meat was consumed by the local Meccans who had very limited means otherwise and lived on the offerings of the pilgrims.

    According to the Quran, the months of Hajj are four and if Hajj is a continuous event during these four months, it will avoid overcrowding and wastage of meat since the animals will be sacrificed everyday for four months but by a much smaller number making it easy to pack and distribute the meat as charity continuously for four months rather than on a single day.

    What is important is taqwa or sincerity of your intentions and not a rigid reading of past practices which also appear to be not in conformity with the Quran. Whereas Allah gave the liberty of performing Hajj during the four months and the rites of Hajj are also clearly elaborated, Muslims follow the example of the Prophet's last Hajj only and not his first which was performed in the month of Dhul Qada and not Dhul Hajj. People call that Umra although animals were sacrificed and no animal is required to be sacrificed for Umra.

    Sacrificing animals in our houses or flats in overcrowded localities is also offensive to others and understandably so and must be avoided.

    By Naseer Ahmed - 9/14/2016 7:32:54 AM

  • This serious Question to Muslim brothers.

    What are the rules of sacrifice of animal, because I was told story(may be philosophical) by my Pious grandfather is was quite different, may be he known from tale said by someone previously.

    He said that the society in Arab had mostly diet of meat, if Mohmmad Paigamber suddenly says to stop eat meat, no one will accept it, so he said rather to cut the animal himself and eat, so while he/she cutting the animal will develop the kindness seeing animals effort and helplessness while it is going to be slaughter, but my grandfather said that emphasis was on cutting the animal himself/herself who want to eat not by somebody else or to go into meat shop and buy it.

    Second thing he told that the lamb was sent from heaven by God, the lamb was not form earth, this itself speaks lot.

    So sometime I feel my grandfather told was wright, because when I see Muslim saying that they cannot see animal being cut but will happily eat if it given in packet ot as readymade takeaway or on dining table.

    But if someone from Muslim scholar clearify the rules of slaughter and eating it, that will be great.

  • The article makes the thing crystal clear. 
    However, I feel that  the verse number 22:37, after perusing the chapter 22, should not be quoted in isolation. It must be quoted along with verse 36.Otherwise Islamophobic groups may use it against the animal sacrifice on the
    basis of the Quran itself.

  • The ritual of sacrifice, as practiced by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is an essential religious rite in memory of the sacrifice performed by Prophet Abraham, which is being practiced as a desirable act during Hajj.

    Even sacrifice can be avoided during Hajj according to this rule, “And whoever cannot find [or afford such an animal] - then a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned [home].

    It is not obligatory (fard), but is highly recommended (wajib) according to the Hanafi school of thought. However, it is a Sunnah act according to the Shafi, Hanbali, Maliki, and Jafari schools of thought.

    According to following Hadees the ritual of sacrifice is one of the most significant and loved one of the sunnah of the rasool Allah (pbuh),

    “Sayedatuna Aisha (RadiAllahuanhu) narrates that Rasul Allah said, “There is no dearer deed of Ibne Adam in the days of Qurbani than flowing the blood (doing Qurbani) and that animal will come with his horns, hairs, and hooves on the day of Qayamt. Thee blood of the Qurbani reaches the stage of acceptance before it reaches the floor.” (Tirmizi, Ibnu Majah)”

    The Muslims all over the world love to follow this Sunnah as it is easier to follow and it comes once a year that brings a lot of festivities too.

    Allah Kareem says in Quran, ““And recite to them the story of Adam's two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah ], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], "I will surely kill you." Said [the former], "Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him].” (Al-Ma'idah 5/27).

    In the light of the above Aayat, the sacrifice of the unrighteous people may not be accepted and their efforts may be wasted. Hence we should, first of all, try to inculcate virtuous qualities in us before thinking of pleasing Allah by scarifying animals, The best way of pleasing Allah Kareem will be by scarifying our malicious evils, nefarious objectives evil deeds etc.
