Books- Allah is the Greatest- Paragraph (14-25): Slaughtering adahi is slaughtering of lusts
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.
 Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All- Knower, the Wise. Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge. Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.
  O Allah our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion, unto the lights of erudition and knowledge, and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.

 Pilgrims take the sacrifice to the place where they slaughter them. The sacrifice stands for a present given to Allah to thank Him for the blessing of guidance, which is the most precious grace of all. When a pilgrim slaughters the sacrifice, it is as if he slaughters all the lusts and desires that Allah forbids, and as if the pilgrim sacrifices everything whether it is cheap or expensive for the sake of pleasing the Lord of the worlds. Allah the Almighty says:

﴾It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him. Thus have We made them subject to you that you may magnify Allah for His Guidance to you. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) to the Muhsinun (doers of good).﴿

[Al-Hajj, 37]
