peace be with you all,
I would like to ask 2 questions please;
1-Alhamdulillah, Allah SWT is Almighty and I am forever Gracious for the Mercy He has showered upon me. I would like to ask, however, what is the best way to “thank” Allah when a dua materalizes i.e. when you say bismillah before doing something and it goes as you wanted it to, or when you ask for something and it happens. I learned a dua but is there a particular act that one should do? I read that in the past, people would sacrifice animals and distribute it to the poor.
2-I live in the UK and to be honest nobody can really complain of poverty. So when we give qurbani/sacrifce, should we be giving it in the UK or should we be giving the money to the poor in another country i.e Pakistan/Palestine?
wa `alaykum salam,
1) Recite 100 times alhamdulillah non-stop and 2 rak`ats salat shukr, but not during `Asr to Maghrib time.
2) Send money to Pakistan or wherever you want. Don’t send money to organizations but send to your family. Let them slaughter and distribute the meat to orphans or poor.
