Forgiveness with the First Drop of Blood

عن علي رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يا فاطمة قومي فاشهدي أضحيتك فإن لك بأول قطرة تقطر من دمها مغفرة لكل ذنب أما إنه يجاء بلحمها ودمها توضع في ميزانك سبعين ضعفا قال أبو سعيد يا رسول الله هذا لآل محمد خاصة فإنهم أهل لما خصوا به من الخير أو للمسلمين عامة قال لآل محمد خاصة وللمسلمين عامة (رواه أبو القاسم الأصبهاني كما في الترغيب والترهيب، الرقم: 1662)

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) told Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu anha), “Witness your qurbaani animal being sacrificed. With the first drop of blood that falls, your sins will be forgiven. Its meat and blood will be placed in your scale of good deeds and multiplied seventy times.” Hazrat Abu Sa’eed (radhiyallahu anhu) asked Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), “O Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)! Is this reward exclusively reserved for your family, as they are entitled to special grace or is this reward for all Muslims?” Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied, “It has specifically been revealed in regard to my family but it (the virtue and reward) is also for my ummah in general.”

Receiving Seventy Rewards

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
