Reward for Every Strand of Hair on the Animal

عن زيد بن أرقم رضي الله عنه قال قال أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : يا رسول الله ما هذه الأضاحي؟ قال : سنة أبيكم إبراهيم عليه السلام. قالوا : فما لنا فيها يا رسول الله ؟ قال : بكل شعرة حسنة . قالوا : فالصوف يا رسول الله ؟ قال : بكل شعرة من الصوف حسنة.  رواه أحمد وابن ماجه (الترغيب والترهيب 2/98)

Hazrat Zaid bin Arqam (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) once enquired from Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam): “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what is the significance of this action of Qurbaani?” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “It is the practice of your forefather Hazrat Ibraahim (Alaihis Salaam).” The Sahaabah then asked, “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what reward will we receive through carrying it out?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “For every strand of hair (on the animal) you will receive a reward.”  The Sahaabah then asked: “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what about an animal which has wool (and not hair)?” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “For every fibre of wool (on the animal) you will receive a reward.”
