The virtue of Qurbani/Udhiyah


What is the authenticity of the following Hadiths:

1) There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed on a persons good deeds). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.

2) Sayyiduna Zayd ibn Arqam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) relates that the Companions asked,

‘O Messenger of Allah! What is Udhiyah?’ He replied, ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam).’ They asked again, ‘What benefit do we get from it?’ He answered, ‘A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).’ ‘And [what reward is there for animals with] wool, O Messenger of Allah?’ they asked. ‘A reward’, he said, ‘for every fibre of the wool.’

‘The Scholars of this Ummah like the Ambiya of the Banu Israel’ a Hadith?


The Hadith:

  علماء أمتي كأنبياء بني إسرائيل 

Translation: The scholars of my ummah are like the Prophets of Bani Israel


I have read this hadith is a fabrication (mawdu’), but some say its not such because Imam Shadhili (rahimahullah) had a dream in which he saw the Prophet (sall allahu alayhi wa sallam) along with other Prophets [alayhimus salam]. Sayyidina Musa (alayhis salam) said to the the the Prophet, Imam al Ambiya, the leader of the mankid and the Jinn (sall allahu alayhi wa sallam): “You have said that the scholars of my ummah are like the Prophets of Bani Israel”, so (please) show me one such scholar. The Prophet (sall allahu alayhi wa sallam) pointed towards Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) and said “Him”

O  Allah! You have granted me the honour and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person?

Allah Ta’ala replied, O Musa! during the last period I am going to send an Ummah, who will be the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger. They will call out to me (in du’a) they will be much much closer to me than you.

O Musa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) .

O Musa! I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftar I will never refuse the du’a of a fasting person!
