What is Qurbani (Eid-ul-Adha)
Eid-ul-Adha (‘festival of Sacrifice’), is the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar. The festival remembers prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son when Allah ordered him to. Moreover, Eid ul Adha marks, the completion of the annual Hajj and Muslims around the world will celebrate and honour this tradition by sacrificing an animal and distributing the meat to those in need.
Today Muslims all over the world, who can afford it, sacrifice a sheep (sometimes a goat) or even a cow as a reminder of prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah.
For many years your Eid ul Adha (Qurbani) donation has allowed ISRA-UK to distribute fresh meat to thousands of families across the world, bringing some happiness to those suffering poverty.
