What is Qurban?

Qurban means sacrifice. Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of Allah (God). At least one third of the meat from the animal must go to poor or vulnerable people. Traditionally, a Muslim would keep one third of the meat for their family and give the final third to their neighbours.

The significance of Qurban

The practice of Qurban can be traced back to the Prophet Ibrahim, who dreamed that Allah (God) ordered him to sacrifice his only son, Ismail. In his devotion to Allah (God), Ibrahim agreed to follow his dream and perform the sacrifice. But Allah (God) intervened and sent a ram to be sacrificed in Ismail’s place. Ismail was spared because Ibrahim proved he would sacrifice his son as an act of piety, despite the loss it would have caused him. The continued practice of sacrifice acts as a reminder of Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah (God).

Ritual Slaughter in Islamic Law

The Ritual Slaughter in Islamic Law must fulfil several conditions and must comply with the conditions stated in the Quran and must be regulated by a set of rules intended to ensure the health of the animal to be slaughtered. The name of Allah (God) ‘Bismillah’ must be called by the butcher upon slaughter of each animal separately. It should be made in a swift, deep incision with a very sharp knife on the throat, cutting the windpipe, jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides but leaving the spinal cord intact.
