What you need to know about the Qurban!The Qurban is a sacrificial animal slaughter to be made after the Eid prayers on Eid Al-Adha until just before the sunsets on the 13th of Thull Hijjah.
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said “Whoever offers a sacrifice after the (Eid) prayer has completed his rituals (of Eid) and has followed the way of the Muslims.” (Bukhari)Qurban is performed by all sane and mature Muslims who have wealth beyond their needs and aren’t travelling. Scholars have differed as to whether the Qurban sacrifice is Wajib (obligatory) or Mustahabb (highly recommended). The eligible animals for sacrifice are sheep, camels, cattle and goats. All must however be above a certain age and at a certain level of physical health. As Muslims, we are advised to show mercy in all actions and this ritual is no different. An animal should not be frightened or suffer during this process. Through this sacrifice we intend to come closer to Allah by following in the footsteps of the great Prophet Abraham. Prophet Abraham embodied the meaning of servitude to God and this sacrifice is a powerful demonstration of our submission to God. It is advisable to hasten to perform the Qurban as soon as possible. Many charity organisations offer to distribute your Qurban to those most in need for you.
