Reviving the Sunnah of Prophet (saw, peace be upon him):

Reviving aspects of the Sunnah that have been virtually forgotten is a deed that will bring an immense reward, as is indicated by the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): "Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 7/443; this is a hasan hadeeth because of corroborating asaaneed).

Selected Ahadith on Eid-ul-Adha

Shahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 68, Number 453:

Narrated Al-Bara: The Prophet said (on the day of Idal-Adha), "The first thing we will do on this day of ours, is to offer the ('Id) prayer and then return to slaughter the sacrifice. Whoever does so, he acted according to our Sunna (tradition), and whoever slaughtered (the sacrifice) before the prayer, what he offered was just meat he presented to his family, and that will not be considered as Nusak (sacrifice)." (On hearing that) Abu Burda bin Niyar got up, for he had slaughtered the sacrifice before the prayer, and said, "I have got a six month old ram." The Prophet said, 'Slaughter it (as a sacrifice) but it will not be sufficient for any-one else (as a sacrifice after you). Al-Bara' added: The Prophet said, "Whoever slaughtered (the sacrifice) after the prayer, he slaughtered it at the right time and followed the tradition of the Muslims."

Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 15, Number 98:

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) used to Nahr or slaughter sacrifices at the Musalla (on 'Id-ul-Adha).

Dawood Book 9, Number 2805:

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) used to slaughter his sacrificial animal at the place of prayer. Ibn 'Umar himself used to do so.

Dawood Book 9, Number 2809:

Narrated Shaddad b. Aws: There are two characteristics that I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: Allah has decreed that everything should be done in a good way, so when you kill use a good method. The version of narrators other than Muslim says: "So kill in a good manner." And when you slaughter, you should use a good method, for one of you should sharpen his knife, and give the animal as little pain as possible.

Ahmad (22475):

Narrated that Buraydah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not go out on the day of (Eid) al-Fitr until he had eaten, and he did not eat on the day of (Eid) al-Adha until he came back, then he would eat from his sacrifice. [Al-Zayla'i narrated in Nasb al-Rayah (2/221) that Ibn al-Qattan classed it as Sahih].
