Qurban(Sacrifice)

Qurbani (udhiya / udhiyah / udhia / qurban) is a sacrifice that is offered at the time of Eid al-Adha to show gratitude towards Allah  and to provide for the poor and needy. The Prophet Muhammad  was once asked by his Companions: “O Prophet of Allah! What is this qurbani?” He replied, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim SWT.” (Hadith – Ibn Majah)

Allah  says in the Qur’an: “It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him.” (Qur’an 22:37) 

Qurbani has been performed from the time of Ibrahim  and commemorates also Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son, who was replaced by an animal at the time of sacrifice.
