Qurbani is the act of sacrificing a livestock animal. It takes place after Eid-Ul-Adha prayers, marking the conclusion of Hajj. Millions of Muslims around the world honour the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) by sacrificing an animal and then distributing the meat accordingly.
Qurbani teaches us obedience, devotion and promotes the idea of helping other Muslim brothers and sisters. The meat from Qurbani is divided into three portions; one for the family, one for the neighbour and one for the poor. Islam preaches about neighbour’s rights and of those who live in poverty. Qurbani, therefore, serves as a means to look out for the poor and the needy.
