Maniha: A Good Gift (Ahadith 2295 – 2296)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 797:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “What a good Maniha (the she-camel which has recently given birth and which gives profuse milk) is, and (what a good Maniha) (the sheep which gives profuse milk, a bowl in the morning and another in the evening) is!”

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 798:
Narrated Malik:
Maniha is a good deed of charity.

Maniha: a sort of gift in the form of a she-camel or a sheep which is given to somebody temporarily so that its milk may be used and then the animal is returned to its owner.

So it’s basically a very thoughtful and generous gift.. an example from today could be lending your car to someone with its tank full, or a printer along with hefty ink supply. I personally think we’re stingy when it comes to these things. We’d rather keep such benefits to ourselves than let others have any share in them. Definitely something to think about.

Slaughter the Animals for Sacrifice Yourself (Hadith No. 1470)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 770:

Narrated Sahl bin Bakkar:

The narration of Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) abridged, saying, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) slaughtered seven Budn (camels) while standing, with his own hands. On the day of ‘Id-ul-Adha he slaughtered (sacrificed) two horned rams, black and white in color.

  1. It’s Sunnah to slaughter your animal of sacrifice yourself. If you don’t want to do the whole thing, at least slit the throat (for goat/sheep/cow etc.).
  2. Although one sheep (or 1/7th of a cow or camel) is enough for one man and his family, there’s no limit to the maximum amount of animals you may slaughter. The more, the better. Keep some for yourself and your family, and give the rest as sadaqah. More on it here.
  3. Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was so strong mashaAllah! Imagine slaughtering seven camels in one go. :O
    It takes a lot of strength! You’d know if you’ve seen a camel being slaughtered. If not, YouTube/Google it.
