Every year Muslims across the globe celebrate Eid ul Adha with full zeal and zest. On the day of Qurbani Muslims follow the Sunnah of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS). Eid ul Adha begins on the 10th day during the last month of the Islamic calendar, called Dhul Hijjah. It is also the same period when Hajj, one of the five compulsory pillars of Islam takes place.
Muslims unite as one Ummah and slaughter a domestic animal for the sake of Allah to celebrate Qurbani.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said “A person is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.” (Bukhari)
After Qurbani, the meat of the sacrificed animal is divided into three equal portions. The first portion is for the individual performing Qurbani, the second portion is for his relatives, and the third portion is for the poor and needy. Since most of the needy families in vulnerable situations eat meat only a few times a year. Thus, Muslims make sure that such poor families are prioritised for Qurbani distribution, providing them possibly the best quality meat.
