This is Qurban 2016 held at Taman Melewar.
What is Qurban?
Qurban is an Arabic word which may be translated as sacrifice. As a religous practice it was started by Prophet Abraham by the commandment of Allah (God). Qurban can also be spelled as Korban.
In Islam, the practice of Qurban is celebrated in commemoration of Prophet Abraham’s renowned act of obedience to the commandment of God to sacrifice his own son but which was later replaced by a ram.
Qurban is performed during the Haj season in the first three days of the Eidul Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) and the animals allowed for Qurban are goat, sheep, cow, buffalo or camel.
The meat from the Qurban are distributed among 3 categories of people:
• 1/3 for the poor and needy.
• 1/3 for family members and friends.
• 1/3 for the person doing the Qurban – and this portion can be given to non-Muslims.
God says in the Holy Quran:
“Lo! We have given thee Abundance. So pray unto thy Lord, and sacrifice.”
(Quran 108:1 – 2)
“Say: Lo! my worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds.”
