Qurbani 2023

Giving Qurbani is an important part of Eid Al-Adha. The word Qurbani derives from ‘Qurb’, which means ‘nearness’. Qurbani must be given on the 10th, 11th, or 12th day of Dhul Hijjah after the Eid prayer. No animal sacrifices can be made before the Eid prayer.

In giving Qurbani, we commemorate the sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim (AS) was willing to make for the sake of Allah (SWT), sacrificing his son, Ismail (AS). Allah (SWT) swapped Ismail (AS) with a sheep which was slaughtered instead.

The animals that can be slaughtered for Qurbani are:

  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • Cows
  • Camels

All of these animals must be healthy and have reached a certain age.

The Noble act of Qurbani on your behalf

“Once our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) was asked, what is Qurbani? The Prophet (saw) answered: ‘𝐈𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐚𝐡 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐈𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐡𝐢𝐦 (𝐚𝐬). 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐐𝐮𝐫𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐢 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐚 𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐀𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐡 (𝐬𝐰𝐭)” – 𝐓𝐢𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐡𝐢

By giving qurbani, we demonstrate our willingness to help others in need and fulfill our religious obligation. It is a time to show compassion, empathy, and generosity towards those who are less fortunate than ourselves. In conclusion, qurbani is a significant act of worship for Muslims that demonstrates our devotion and gratitude to Allah. By giving Qurbani, we are fulfilling our religious obligation and demonstrating our willingness to help those who are less fortunate

What is Eid Al-Adha?

Eid al-Adha, also known as the "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid", is one of the most important Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide. This special occasion commemorates the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim (or Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (or Isaac) as an act of obedience to God's command. Apart from the religious significance, Eid al-Adha also symbolizes the importance of sacrifice, generosity, and unity. It is a time for Muslims to reflect on their faith, strengthen their bonds with loved ones, and show compassion towards those in need.
