Books- Allah is the Greatest- Paragraph (17-25): The Purpose of Udhiya
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.

 The purpose of the Udhiyah is that the rich Muslim expresses his gratitude to Allah the Almighty for His various graces, among which is guidance, and being alive till Eid Al Adha year after year.

((The best of you is the one who lived long and performed good deeds))

 Safety (not having intractable diseases), good health, and sustenance in abundance are also among the graces we should be thankful for.
 Moreover, Udhiyah is an atonement from sins that were committed and it is a treat for the family of the person who is slaughtering the Udhiyah and his relatives, friends, neighbors, and poor Muslims.
