Qurbani is the sacrifice that was made obligatory upon the Muslim ummah after it was performed by Prophet Ibrahim (AS). Allah the Almighty commanded Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail, (as it is described in the Holy Quran). To fulfill the commandment of the Almighty, Ibrahim went on and tried to slaughter his only son in the way of Allah but a miracle happened and Prophet Ibrahim passed this magnificent test. Allah send a ram and Ibrahim sacrificed it instead of his son, Ismail.
So, from that day onwards, Qurbani, or in common words, slaughtering a Halal animal – a sheep, goat, cow, or camel – became one of the most important parts of the Hajj pilgrimage and without which the Hajj ritual is incomplete. Muslims around the world who financially affords a Qurbani, commemorate this day for the dedication of Prophet Ibrahim towards fulfilling the commandment of Allah.

And Qurbani or sacrificing a sheep or a goat marks the end/completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
