The Qurbani meat normally distributed into poor peoples. The key purpose of Qurbani is that the needy and poor people who can’t afford and didn’t eat meat throughout the year, through this holy event they can easily taste it. The Qurbani meat divided into three parts,

  • 1/3 is Eaten by Instant Family
  • 1/3 is for the Neighbors
  • 1/3 is Given to the Needy and Poor

Qurbani represents our preparedness to give up things that are of benefit to us or adjacent to our cores, in order to follow the instructions of Allah.

So, if you’re financially stable and can afford Hajj worship then perform Hajj and perform Qurbani for the sake of Almighty Allah. Undoubtedly, He will forgive your sins and give you more advantages. Do your duty when Allah gives you time. May Allah accept our Qurbani as well as Hajj that we do for the sake of Almighty Allah.
