First of all SELAMAT HARI RAYA EIDUL ADHA to all muslims all over the world.
Eid literally means ‘returns’ and Adha means ’sacrifice’ or ‘qurban’. So Eidul Adha means ‘return to sacrifices’ or ‘remembrances of sacrifices’ of Prophet Ibrahim A.S and his son Prophet Ismail A.S.
Prophet Ibrahim A.S received wahyu from Allah to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismail A.S. This is to test both of thier faith toward Allah s.w.t and both accept this order wholeheartedly and with Taqwa. In the end Allah exchange the sacrifice with a desert goat or Qibash.
So, in the remembrance of this historic event, muslims perform the Ibadah of Qurban and the slaughtered meat will be given to the poor and needy.
All images captured at my Kariah of Surau Taman Melewar. As far as I can remembered this the biggest qurban we have with 7 cows… usually about 5 or less cows.
