So, Eid Al-Adha (bakra eid) is around the corner. There are many, ya’ne, statements of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam), scholars, etc. about how awesome it is to sacrifice animals and give the meat to poor people, and how much reward there is.
So, let’s do this. As a “crowd-funded” thing. Cows and stuff can be expensive, so how about we chip in a few bucks each and buy something together?
If you want to contribute, please respond to this thread (or PM me) by no later than the end of Sunday, August 27th, with whatever you want to contribute. You don’t have to wire me the money immediately; I’ll buy it on Monday inshaAllah and you guys can repay me whenever’s convenient for you.
Honestly, if you can afford it (you can get a sheep in India for $70 or something), it’s better to do it yourself IMO. If not, or you want to contribute less, that’s cool.
There’s a statement of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) to the effect of “save yourself from Hellfire, even with half a date” (which is like $1). So yeah, let me know if you’re down.
