Qurbani is the festival of sacrifice that Muslims all over the world demonstrate commemorating the ultimate sacrifice of Nabi Ibrahim (AS) and Nabi Ismail (AS) on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.
It is one of the most religious rituals of Islam that every financially stable Muslim need to perform for the sake of Allah the Almighty. In Qurbani, (sacrifice of an animal) Muslims are to remember the Unity of Allah, and His blessings upon us. The ritual of slaughtering takes place after offering the Eid prayer mostly on the 10th Zil Hajj of the Islamic calendar and the two days following it.
“Neither their flesh reaches Allah nor their blood, but it is your piety that reaches Him.”
- (The Holy Quran 22:37)
What You Must Know About Qurbani
How the meat must be distributed
It is important and preferred that the meat of the slaughtered animal is divided into three parts. One part for own use, one part for relatives and one part for the poor and needy, preferably Muslims. The meat and skin cannot be given as payment for services rendered BUT may be given as a gift. It is permissible in Islam that the skin may be kept for personal use, or given to someone else. It may also be donated to an organisation. Muslims must make sure that the given meat is such as you would yourself like to receive and eat. Giving meat to reliable organisations for distribution to the needy is allowed in Islam and wasting of meat is strictly prohibited.
While Qurbani is a lesson itself that teaches us so much about sacrificing and letting go of what is dear in the name of Allah, Muslims must demonstrate this ritual with the purest of intentions, only for the sake of Allah. It is also important to cultivate community harmony in every sense of it hence, hygiene measures must also be taken into consideration while cleaning post slaughtering.
