What is Qurbani?

Qurbani is the sacrificing of the Halal animals. It 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 described in the Holy Quran). To fulfill the commandment of the Almighty, Ibrahim tried to slaughter his only son in the way of Allah. A miracle happened, and Prophet Ibrahim passed this magnificent test. Allah sent a ram, and Ibrahim sacrificed it instead of his son, Ismail.

So, slaughtering Halal/Qurbani animals – sheep, goat, cow, or camel – became one of the most significant parts of the Hajj pilgrimage. Muslims around the world who financially afford, to commemorate this day for the dedication of Prophet Ibrahim to fulfilling the commandment of Allah.
