What is Qurbani?

Qurbani, which translates to sacrifice.

goes back to the story of the Prophet Ibrahim (as) :

and the sacrifice he was willing to make when Allah almighty ordered him to sacrifice his son Ismail.

We perform Qurbani every year as a reminder of the Prophet’s devotion and faithfulness to Allah (SWT) and as an attempt to ensure that the vulnerable are included in the joy of Eid throughout the Qurbani meat distributions.

the importance of qurbani in islam

Qurbani, also known as Udhiyah, holds significant importance in Islam, both spiritually and socially. Here are several key aspects highlighting its significance:

  1. Religious Obligation: Qurbani is a religious obligation for Muslims who are financially able to afford it. It is performed during the Islamic month of Dhul-Hijjah, specifically on the days of Eid al-Adha, which commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Isma’il (Ishmael) in obedience to Allah’s command.
  2. Submission to Allah: Qurbani symbolizes the act of submission to Allah’s will and obedience to His commandments. Just as Prophet Ibrahim demonstrated unwavering devotion and obedience to Allah, Muslims offer Qurbani as an expression of their faith, humility, and commitment to God.
  3. Reminder of Sacrifice and Gratitude: Qurbani serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by Prophet Ibrahim and his family and the gratitude they showed towards Allah. It encourages Muslims to reflect on the blessings bestowed upon them and to express gratitude through acts of worship and charity.
  4. Fulfillment of Social Responsibility: Qurbani involves the sacrifice of livestock, such as sheep, goats, cows, or camels, and the distribution of meat to the needy. It emphasizes the importance of sharing blessings with others, particularly those less fortunate, and fulfilling the social responsibility of caring for the marginalized and vulnerable members of society.
  5. Solidarity and Unity: Qurbani fosters a sense of unity and solidarity among Muslims worldwide, as they come together to perform the ritual and share in the blessings of Eid al-Adha. It strengthens community bonds, promotes empathy and compassion, and reinforces the values of generosity, kindness, and mutual support.
  6. Spiritual Purification and Redemption: Offering Qurbani is believed to purify the soul and bring spiritual rewards and blessings to the individual and their family. It is considered a means of seeking forgiveness for past sins and drawing closer to Allah through acts of worship and charity.
