Qurbani is the religious sacrifice of sheep, goats & cattle between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
It is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) and their story of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (SWT). Sacrificed meat is distributed among the poor and needy across the globe.
Qurbani holds a special place in Islam. It is stressed upon ithe Qur’an and is a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s (as) devotion and obedience.
For many scholars, Qurbanis an obligation for all Muslims who possess the Zakat threshold. Despite this, its critical role within Islam is often missed, resulting in its tremendous barakah being lost.
The Prophet (S) said, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT).”
