What is Qurbani?
Qurbani means sacrifice. Qurbani and Udhiyya are used to describe the act of sacrifice on Eid ul Adha.
Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the globe sacrifice an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh)’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God.
In accordance to Shariah, at least one third of the meat from the animal must go to poor or vulnerable people. Traditionally, a Muslim would keep one third of the meat for their family and give the final third to their neighbours, friends and family.
Who needs to do Qurbani?
