Qurbani 2024

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)

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ - (Tirmidhi)

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.
