Dua’ (Supplication) For Slaughtering or Sacrificing an Animal

November 11, 2010

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
Dua for Sacrifice
Bismillaahi wallaahu ‘Akbar [Allaahumma minka wa laka] Allaahumma taqabbal minnee.

In the Name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest! [Oh Allah, from You and to You.] Oh Allah, accept it from me.

Source: Muslim 3/ 1557, Al-Bayhaqi 9/287.

  1. Do you know if there is anything regarding blowing on the knife after making the dua?

    Or is this all that is recorded regarding what to say at the time of slaughtering?

    • I didn’t read any where about blowing on the knife before slaughtering. I posted an article by Shaykh Uthaymeen titled “The Etiquettes of Slaughtering by Shaykh Uthaymeen” and the Shaykh doesn’t mention anything pertinent to the blowing on the knife wAllahu alam.

      • Na’am. JazakAllahu khair.

        It’s probably another one of those ‘desi’ things which becomes common and they dont realize that this is an act of worship and thus must be done in complete accordance with the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallalahu ‘alayhe wasallam.

        Wallahu ‘alam.

    • I am not aware of anything like this wAllahu alam.

      When something is compulsory in islam there must be a text to support it. Remember in islam knowledge proceeds action.
