WHAT IS QURBANI
Qurbani is a sacrifice that is offered at the time of Eid al-Adha to show gratitude towards Allah (swt) and to provide for the poor and needy.
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) was once asked by his Companions: “O Prophet of Allah! What is this qurbani?” He replied, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (A.S).” (Hadith – Ibn Majah) Allah (swt) 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 (AS) and commemorates also Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son, who was replaced by an animal at the time of sacrifice.
 
RULES OF QURBANI
The Qurbani rules are followed by Muslims globally and are a part of the Islamic culture. The rules vary from country to country, but they all have a few things in common:
*Qurbani is compulsory until the children are adults.
*Qurbani can only be performed after the eid ul adha prayers from the 10th of Zul-Hijja to the 12 of Zul-Hijja.
*The condition of a qurbani animal should be healthy.
*Animals that are weak, blind, physically disabled or those who are young, have broken horns or no teeth are ineligible.
*You can opt for a goat, sheep, cow, buffalo or camel for qurbani.
*Saying the takbeer ‘Bismillahi Allahu akbar (in the name of Allah, Allah is Great) at the time of sacrifice are the successful and acceptable words.
 
DISTRIBUTION OF QURBANI MEAT
 
After slaughtering the animal, it is usually divided into three shares:
*One part for the donor.
*One part is for the donor’s family, friends, or neighbours.
*One part is for the needy and poor.
One should eat the halal meat of the sacrifice, give it to relations and friends, (to non-Muslims also) and also to the poor in charity. One third should be given in charity, but if it be less it will not be a sin.
