What is a Prophetic Qurbani?

‘The Prophet (saw) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’. [Tabarani and Ahmad]

Fasting in Dhul Hijjah

Muslims are taught to fast on the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah. As an important sunnah, Dhul Hijjah fasting  brings great rewards and forgiveness of sins.
