When Is Qurbani Performed?
“Once our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was asked, what is Qurbani? The Prophet (SAW) answered: ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)” - Tirmidhi
Qurbani is the religious sacrifice of an animal between the tenth and twelfth days during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah. Muslims from all over the world slaughter an animal- sheep, goat, cow, bulls, buffalo or camel - Qurbani is done to reflect Prophet Ibrahim's story of sacrifice and his devotion to Allah (SWT) One third of the meat from the animal goes to the poor or anyone in need, the other one third would be for you and your family and the final third is given to your neighbours or your friends.
