A humble request from muslim brothers who sacrifice Animals for the sake of Allah swt

A humble request to my Muslim brethren.

Let us follow the basic etiquette while we sacrifice the animal during Eid Al-Adha.

Let’s make sure we do not block the drains, leave the wastes on roads, cause discomfort and problems to others citizens and pollute the environment for diseases to spread.

Wherever possible I request all to make sacrifices in open uncemented lands so that the waste is absorbed by the soil, dried up soon and the remains can be cleared off easily. This will save time, energy and water that is required to do the cleaning. This also applies to cleaning the surrounding where the animal was kept and where it was slaughtered.

To clear the wastes, the best way is to make a burrow in the ground, dump the entire biodegradable waste in it and cover it with soil. We can thereby convert it to manure and make the soil even more fertile.

As told by our Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon Him) –“Cleanliness is half the faith”. Let us not harm the environment as harmed in other religious practices in India.

Prophet Mohammed(pbuh) also said, “..…By Him, Who controls my life in His hand, no such person shall enter Paradise, whose neighbour was not safe from his transgressions”
Ref: Bukhārī (Nos. 10, 11 and 6119), Muslim (Nos. 40, 41 and 42)

Any religious practice going against the nature is like going against Allah. Allah has entrusted a duty upon every Human being to protect the nature. Let us obey the command of Allah & make this world a better place to live in with harmony.
