WHAT IS QURBAN (Udhiyah)?

Every year during the Islamic calendar month of Dhul-Hijjah, Muslims around the world sacrifice a Qurban (Udhiyah); which can be a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the submission of Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) who was commanded by Allah to sacrifice his beloved son Ismail. Allah (SWT) rewarded Prophet Ibrahim for his obedience by saving Ismail and a ram was sacrificed instead.

Qurban is sacrificed during the days of Eid Al-Adha as an act of worship, thereby intending to draw closer to Allah. It is one of the great rituals of Islam prescribed in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (PBUH). Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only).” [al-Kawthar 108:2]

Qurban is a Compulsory Sunnah of our Prophet (PBUH) and it is of great value of reward. It was also reported that the Prophet (PBUH) said “O people, it is compulsory for every household to make a sacrifice yearly.” [Ahmed]

Throughout this occasion, we should not forget millions of people who are suffering the consequences of conflicts and natural disasters. Let us help them be fed by donating your qurbans.
