Share the Blessings of Eid with Those in Need

When the Messenger (PBUH) was asked what Qurbani is, he answered, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim. For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

Imagine putting a smile on the faces of starving families this Eid al-Adha. Honour the incredible devotion of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and share the blessings of Eid with families in need.

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani, also known as Udhiyah, is an act of worship performed by Muslims during the days of Eid-ul-Adha. It involves sacrificing an animal as an act of devotion and thankfulness to Allah. This sacrifice is a commemoration of the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon him) when Allah commanded him to sacrifice his son Ismail (Peace be upon him). However, after the test of faith, Allah replaced Ismail (Peace be upon him) with a ram, which Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon him) sacrificed instead. This act of obedience and sacrifice is remembered and celebrated by Muslims around the world every year through the practice of Qurbani.

The Quranic reference to Qurbani is found in Surah Al-Hajj where Allah says, “It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is your piety that reaches Him.” (22:37). This verse emphasizes that the act of sacrificing an animal is not just about the physical act of slaughter, but it is the intention and piety of the believer that is most important.

The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also highlights the significance of Qurbani. He (Peace be upon him) said, “Whoever offers a sacrifice after Eid prayer, has completed his rituals (of Qurbani) and has succeeded in following the ways of the Muslims.” Bukhari. This Hadith stresses the importance of Qurbani and encourages Muslims to perform this act of worship.

The Significance of Qurbani

Qurbani is an act of submission to Allah’s will. It is an expression of gratitude for all the blessings that Allah has bestowed upon us. The act of sacrificing an animal is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon him) and his son Ismail (Peace be upon him).

Qurbani is also an act of charity. The meat from the sacrificed animal is distributed among the needy and less fortunate. This helps to promote social cohesion and unity within communities. It is a reminder of our obligation to take care of those who are less fortunate than us.

How is Qurbani performed?

Qurbani can be performed in a number of ways. It can be performed individually, within families, or through communal sacrifices. The animal to be sacrificed must be of a certain age and in good health. The most commonly sacrificed animals are sheep, goats, cows, and camels.

Before the sacrifice is made, the animal must be cared for properly and given the appropriate food and water. The sacrifice must also be performed in a humane manner, ensuring that the animal does not suffer unnecessarily. The animal is then slaughtered by a trained professional in accordance with Islamic guidelines.
