In the footsteps of Ibrahim (‘Alayhis-salam)
Qurbani is the act of sacrificing a livestock animal, usually a goat or sheep. It takes place after Eid-Ul-Adha prayers, marking the conclusion of Hajj.
Qurbani commemorate the sacrifice that Ibrahim (‘Alayhis-salam) was prepared to make for Allah as a test of his faith. In honour of this, Muslims sacrifice animals as an act of worship to Allah.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
‘Whoever offers a sacrifice after the prayer, has completed his rituals (of Eid) and followed the way of the Muslims.‘ – [Sahih al Bukhari]
Qurbani is compulsory for every Muslim who is of sound mind and possesses the nisab (zakat threshold).
Eid al Adha is the only time of year some families will have meat to eat – and you can be the one to provide it!
