Happy Eid Adha. Qurban is around the corner!


Alhamdulillah, we get to live another day to have the opportunity to do Qurban (again). For those who missed the details:

What is Qurban?

The act of Qurban (Sacrifice) is carried out by millions of Muslims every year during Eid Al-Adha following the example of the father of Prophets, Ibrahim (AS).

Allah (SWT) says in the Quran: "It is neither their meat nor their blood, that reaches Allah, it is your piety that reaches Him". (Al Qur'an, Ch:22 v:37)

The prophet Muhammad PBUH was asked "What is Qurban?", He answered, "It is the sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS), for every hair of the Qurban you will receive a reward from Allah and for every hair in the wool you will receive a reward". (Hadith - Ibn Maja and Tirmidhi).

Please bear in mind that if you have done it once, it doesn't mean that it's enough. As long as you can afford, do make it as a yearly tradition of your family - have a fund box for your Qurban at home. It's so easy & hassle free if you save as low as RM1 per day, per person and by the next Eid Adha, you'll get to do Qurban again (without even thinking if you can afford it or NOT!) *Sigh* How many of us deliberately spent RM1 per day on unnecessary things? I believed I did that and now I vow to call it for a change - for the sake of the people in needs & for the reward from ALLAH as HE promised. May ALLAH granted us more of the livelihood & prosperity, for us to continue this act of Qurban yearly without missed. Amin.
