‘The Messenger of Allah ﷺ informed us that there is no action more beloved to Allah on the Day of Eid than making a sacrifice. He told his beloved daughter Sayyidah Fatimah al-Zahra’ that she would be forgiven for her previous wrongdoings with the first drop of blood to be shed from the sacrificed animal. She asked if this reward was specifically for the Household of the Prophet and he replied: “For us and for all the Muslims.”
