The Benefits of the Sacrificial Camels Print E-mail

﴿لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَـفِعُ﴾

(In them are benefits for you) meaning, in the Budn (sacrificial camels) you find benefits such as their milk their wool and hair, and their use for riding.

﴿لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَـفِعُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى﴾

(In them are benefits for you for an appointed term,) Miqsam reported that Ibn `Abbas said: "Until you decide to offer them as a sacrifice.'' It was recorded in the Two Sahihs from Anas that the Messenger of Allah saw a man driving his sacrificial camel and said,


(Ride it.) The man said, "It is a sacrificial camel.'' He said,

«ارْكَبْهَا وَيْحَك»

(Ride it, woe to you!) the second or third time. According to a report recorded by Muslim from Jabir, the Messenger of Allah said:

«ارْكَبْهَا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ إِذَا أُلْجِئْتَ إِلَيْهَا»

(Ride it gently accor- ding to your needs.)

﴿ثُمَّ مَحِلُّهَآ إِلَى الْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ﴾

(and afterwards they are brought for sacrifice to the `Atiq House.) meaning, they are eventually brought to the `Atiq House -- which is the Ka`bah -- as Allah says:

﴿هَدْياً بَـلِغَ الْكَعْبَةِ﴾

(an offering, brought to the Ka`bah) ﴿5:95﴾

﴿وَالْهَدْىَ مَعْكُوفاً أَن يَبْلُغَ مَحِلَّهُ﴾

(and detained the Hady, from reaching their place of sacrifice) ﴿48:25﴾

﴿وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا لِّيَذْكُرُواْ اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَى مَا رَزَقَهُمْ مِّن بَهِيمَةِ الاٌّنْعَـمِ فَإِلَـهُكُمْ إِلَـهٌ وَحِدٌ فَلَهُ أَسْلِمُواْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُخْبِتِينَ - الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَالصَّـبِرِينَ عَلَى مَآ أَصَابَهُمْ وَالْمُقِيمِى الصَّلَوةِ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَـهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ ﴾

(34. And for every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies, that they may mention the Name of Allah over the beast of cattle that He has given them for food. And your God is One God, so you must submit to Him Alone. And give glad tidings to the Mukhbitin.) (35. Whose hearts are filled with fear when Allah is mentioned, and the patient who bear whatever may befall them, and who perform the Salah, and who spend out of what We have provided for them.)
