no other good deed that is dearer to Allah
"The saying of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم ‘On the day of Eid-ul-Aḍḥā, man performs no other good deed that is dearer to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ than shedding blood (of the sacrificial animal). This sacrificed animal will come with its horns, hair and hooves and the sacrifice is accepted by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ before the blood of the sacrificed animal reaches the ground. Therefore, perform the Qurbānī wholeheartedly.’ (Sunan-ut-Tirmiżī, vol. 3, pp. 162, Ḥadīš 1498) "
