The story behind the sacrifice

Qurbani is derived from the Arabic word 'Qurban,' which means an act performed to seek God's pleasure. It is also known as Udh-hiya, which is an Arabic word meaning 'blood sacrifice'.

Every year, during the month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims worldwide offer Qurbani by sacrificing an animal. This is not only a celebration but also an act of worship, following in the footsteps of Ibrahim (AS). Thousands of years ago, Ibrahim (AS) received a dream from Allah (SWT) ordering him to sacrifice his one and only son, Ismail. He accepted Allah's command and conveyed it to Ismail. Ismail (AS), without hesitation, accepted Allah's will. This incident demonstrated the courage, obedience, and love for Allah (SWT).

As Ibrahim was about to slaughter his only son, Allah (SWT) sent him a lamb and ordered him to spare his son and sacrifice the lamb instead. Allah (SWT) was testing Ibrahim's obedience and faith with this command. Ibrahim (AS) passed the test with unwavering obedience, patience, perseverance, and a true demonstration of faith. He was willing to sacrifice his only child to please the Almighty Allah (SWT).

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught us the significance of sacrifice and obedience when he personally offered Qurbani during the month of Dhul Hijjah. This act of worship follows the example set by Ibrahim (AS).

Today, giving your Qurbani is an opportunity to honour the sacrifices made by our beloved Prophets and provide families with a nutritious meal on Eid day.
