Hadith on Udhiyah: Supplication before sacrificing animals

Aisha reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, ordered for a ram to be brought as a sacrifice. The Prophet took the ram and laid it on its side to prepare for slaughtering, then he said, “In the name of Allah, O Allah, accept it from Muhammad, the house of Muhammad, and the nation of Muhammad.” Then, he sacrificed it.
