Qurban also referred to as “Udhiyah” or “Qurbani” is an Abrahamic ritual in Islam when Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) saw a dream in which Allah SWT commanded him to sacrifice his only son Ishmael (Ismail). However, before the slaughter was carried out Ishmael was replaced with an animal for slaughter.
Muslims perform the sacrifice yearly about two and a half months after Ramadan, on the day of Eid Al-Adha. During Eid Al-Adha millions of Muslims perform Hajj (Pilgrimage) and partake in many Abrahamic rituals including slaughtering animals as a Qurban.
Muslims who do not perform Hajj can still partake in this highly rewarded act.
Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you, and give good tidings to the doers of good.” (Quran 22:37)
