Alhamdulillah we are now in the blessed days of Hajj, wherein we remember the oneness of Allah and the obedience of His close friend, Sayyiduna Ibrahim ‘alayhis-salaam.
These days will culminate in the great act of Qurbani (or Udhiyyah), when the believers sacrifice animals to Allah from after the Eid prayer (10th Dhul Hijjah) up until last days of tashreeq.
This noble act is a Sunnah of our father, Ibrahim ‘alayhis-salaam, as well as of our beloved Messenger SallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said,
‘Whoever offers a sacrifice after the prayer, has completed his rituals (of Eid) and followed the way of the Muslims.’
Ummah Welfare Trust is giving you the chance to offer Qurbani this year. Alhamdulillah, you can fulfil your obligation, and do so while feeding the poor and the forgotten.
Let us adhere to the traditions of this noble religion in the coming days. Let us follow the Sunnah of our father, Ibrahim ‘alayhis-salaam, for whom nothing was dearer than to please Allah.
