Nadim Bashir – Udhiya Wisdoms #09 – Udhiya is not Cruel

Nadim Bashir
AI: Summary © The speakers discuss the Islamic way of sacrificing animals, which is considered cruel and is used to avoid the worst-case scenario where the brain sends signals to the body before it can function properly. Subhanababa's stance is that animals are created from the neck and blood comes out of the animal before it can function properly. The "ma'am" method is viewed as cutting a body to send blood to the brain, and the use of the "ma'am" method is crucial for achieving a "ma'am" mentality, which is crucial for healthy life.

in a while you was

salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah, who Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi aji marine Abad. Yesterday, we had talked about the etiquettes and the method of odor here. And while we were talking about that, you know, we talked about killing the animal and so forth. And today, what I want to talk about is that the Islamic way of sacrificing an animal, you know, some people may view it as cruel, inhumane. And I want to just clarify this, that the Islamic way of sacrificing an animal, it actually causes the least amount of pain to the animal, and Hamdulillah we have such an amazing and such a beautiful

00:01:28 --> 00:02:11

Deen, that whatever we do, and whatever Allah subhanaw taala has told us to do, it is in the best interest for us. It is not that Allah subhanaw taala benefits from his benefit benefits from it, it is us who we benefit from it, even when it comes to the animal, Allah subhanho wa Taala has said in numerous places in the Quran, that the animals have been created, so that we can benefit from it, whether we are benefiting from the skin of the animal, whether we are consuming the animal, but at the same time when it comes to taking the life of the animal and killing the animal. Allah has also taught us that what is the best way to do that in such a way that we cause the least amount of pain

00:02:11 --> 00:02:56

to the animal. Now the Islamic way is that we slaughter from the neck, as we talked about this yesterday. But the reason why our deen has taught us this is because that naturally from a scientific perspective, when you begin cutting the throat of the animal, what happens is that the brain goes into a shock or it goes it sends sick certain signals throughout the entire body. That because the brain in order for it to function in his blood, now since the blood is coming out from the neck, because we cut from the neck, then the brain is demanding that send of send the blood to the brain. And so when the blood gets to the brain before you can get to the brain, it comes out

00:02:56 --> 00:03:42

actually. And so Subhanallah the way we do it the way Islam has taught us to do it, it is the in a way that where it is considered as in the lease paying for the animal. And not only that, but when the brain sends those signals that send the blood forth, and the blood is rushing out in his coming out of the animal, the the soul of the animal or the role of the animal, or the life of the animal, you can say comes out even more quickly. And in this way, even the meat see what happens in many cases is that if you don't slaughter the animal in the Islamic way, then what happens is that the meat it sucks in it tries to suck in all the blood. And that's why you see that Subhanallah an

00:03:42 --> 00:04:25

animal that has been slaughtered the Islamic way, you will see that there is not a lot of blood in the meat. Whereas when you see it being killed in other ways, the meat usually it it takes in the blood. And that's why we you see that when the meat is being cut, there's so much blood coming out of the animal. So this is why I want to clarify this that some people say that this is a cruel way, the Islamic way of sacrificing the animal is the cruel way. Let me actually tell you what is the cruel way. The cruel way is what we see in many slaughterhouses around the nation and around the world. First of all, you're talking you're talking about animals being stung. In many cases, they're

00:04:25 --> 00:04:59

given such a high voltage shock that they die because of that shock. That is cruelty. When people are being I mean when animals are being shot in the head, and this happens in many slaughterhouses. They're being shot in the head. That's called cruelty. That's called pain. When you talk about I've seen with you know in videos with my own eyes, that you know animals are being slaughtered and while you know the the roar in the life of the animal is coming out. They're picking up the animal with a bag two legs or

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

all four legs, and they're transferring from one place to another place. That is not the humane way or that's not not the right way of taking the life of an animal our deen has taught us the best way. And when people say that this is the cruel way, the Islamic way is a cruel way. No, it is in a way that our Dean has taught us, Allah has taught us, the provider, your son has demonstrated it. And in this way, the animal goes to the least amount of pain. So once again, by cutting from here, that brain sends signals throughout the entire body, that please send the blood to the brain because I need that blood. But before the blood can actually reach the brain, it comes out from the throat

00:05:45 --> 00:06:32

area. So this is something that I really want to clarify, because yesterday when we talked about the method of older, some people may see it as Oh is a very cool area. No, it is a cruel, a cruel away or cruel method. It is not. The second thing and the last thing actually I want to mention is that as we approach the day of Eid, and and as we approach the 10th of the Hijjah the day of Olivia, remember that Ibrahim alayhis salam and his concept and his mentality of saying the bake, you know this thing that we always hear love bake Allah Humala, bake the baker lashari, Kala kala bake this thing that you know this dua that the hygiene are chanting in the state of the law or when heading

00:06:32 --> 00:07:21

to the Kaaba and so forth. And may Allah take us all of us there. I mean, you know, but I mean, the whole idea is that what is the bake mean? The bake means, Oh Allah, I am here. Oh Allah, I am present. Oh Allah, I'm here to serve you. Oh Allah. And Subhan Allah, Allah bake. If you think about it, the essence of love bake. Our entire life should be about the bake. Whenever Allah demands anything from us, it should be the bake, Oh Allah, I'm here to serve you. Oh Allah. When Allah told and he instructed Ibrahim alayhi salam to leave his family in the desert. Le Baker Allah when Allah subhanho wa Taala told Ibrahim it is time to go and sacrifice your son. Love Baker Allah when Allah

00:07:21 --> 00:08:07

subhanho wa Taala totally Ibrahim alayhi salam to build the Kaaba. What do you buy? You might eat some he say he says, uh, where will people come from? And what Allah subhanho wa Taala say? He said, Oh, Ibrahim, your job is to build the Kaaba. It is my job to bring people from around the world. Yeah to to carry Jalan wa ala kulli bomb ball meeting. Yeah, Tina mean Cooley Fujinami. This is Allah's promise. And subhanAllah we see this in hij. If you have been for hij you will meet people who come from places where you have never even heard of. This is a law fulfilling his end of the promise. So when Allah told Ibrahim it Islam, build the Kaaba, what did he say? He said the baker

00:08:07 --> 00:08:51

Allah so when it comes to our life, brother and sisters is not just about a dua when you go for Hajj we are saying that bake Allah home with a bake but our entire life should be love bake Allahu Allah bake. When Allah tells us that you do something a certain way. Now Baker Allah when Allah Subhan Allah tells us that you leave this for his sake and for the sake of your iman love Baker, Allah this is the nature and this is the mentality and the philosophy and the attitude more than anything else of a believer. So I asked Allah subhana wa Tada finally, that may Allah give us this mentality, this understanding this philosophy of love bake May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us ability to do what is

00:08:51 --> 00:09:05

right at every point in our life. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us ability to stay away from what is wrong and every point of our life and mirabile Alameen does that Kamala Hey as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
