‘It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches him.’ -The holy Qur’an 22:37
Qurbani is the religious practice of sacrificing livestock during Eid ul-Adha. It is wajib –necessary for every mature Muslim who is financially able to preform Qurbani. In the event that one is unable to carry out the sacrifice during Eid, or in the two days which follow, he/she is obliged to donate the value of a sacrificial animal.
Qurbani is a tradition that comes to us from the Prophet Ibrahim (as) and his son Ismail (as). It reminds us of the great sacrifice both were willing to make, their strength of faith, and of God’s favor and mercy upon the believers.
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that a believer who preforms Qurbani in sincerity will reap a reward for every hair of the animal he/she sacrifices. (Tirmidhi)Book Your Qurbani Now
