Bringing Back Qurbani to Sulawesi's Highest Peak

25 August 2018

ACTNews, LUWU – The grinding sound coming from the wheels of our trucks that rolled on the rocky path suddenly caught the attention of the locals. One after another, they got out of their houses to find out who just arrived in their village. They murmured with curiosity, “Who are these people? What is Global Qurban?”

The people in Rante Hamlet, Tabang Village, Latimojong Sub-District are quite isolated from the outside world. Many people in Indonesia are also probably unaware of their existence.

Rante Hamlet is located at the feet of Latimojong mountain, the highest mountain un Sulawesi. There was only one mobile network operator whose cellular coverage reaches the area, and it can only be used for making a phone call or text messages. Tabang Village can only be reached by trucks due to the difficult access across mountain and valleys.

Due to the remote location, the people in the area live within their own community. The bond between the inhabitants is strong; everyone knows each other. Unfortunately, despite the strong social cohesion, many things that we take for granted are luxuries to them. Qurbani meat on the day of Eid-ul-Adha is one of them.

In the last ten years, there had been only three occasions where qurbani animals were sacrificed in Tabang Village: in 2014, 2015, and 2016. A cow was sacrificed and the meat was distributed to the Muslims there. In 2017, there was no qurbani in the village. After a year without qurbani, finally they got to celebrate another festive Eid-ul-Adha.

Bringing back the joy of qurbani to Tabang Village.

Two days after Eid, Friday (8/23), a qurbani animal was sent to Tabang Village. Global Qurban – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) South Sulawesi brought a cow for the inhabitants of the village. After a three-hour-journey, our trucks arrived at Rante Hamlet in Tabang Village just a few moments past Asr time, around 4 p.m.

The cow was then immediately unloaded from the truck and was tied down on a field behind an elementary school. Udding, the village Imam, immediately unsheathed his machete and slaughtered the cow. Afterwards, the meat was weighed and distributed to the locals. Each house was visited; each door was knocked. The locals who have just finished praying maghrib got out of their houses to receive the meat

“In total, 81 impoverished Muslim families received the beef. Alhamdulillah, we are happy; it is very beneficial,” said Asdin (38), Tabang Village Chief.

Sincere gratitude was expressed by the beneficiaries. After a year spent when they hardly ate meat, finally they can enjoy fresh beef on this joyful moment of Eid.

“I am happy to be able to eat meat. Rante Hamlet is one of the poorest areas in Tabang Village. We rarely eat meat,” said Hamria (56), a mother of ten, the Quranic teacher in the village.

Around 7 p.m., Global Qurban – ACT team for Luwu regency was getting ready to get home, taking another three-hour-journey to get to the city where they’ll spend their night. They left Tabang village with hearts full of happiness knowing that their program reached the rightful beneficiaries.

“We hope that the qurbani from the people of Indonesia given through Global Qurban will relly benefit the people in remote areas, bring happiness and blessings to others,” said Nur Ali Akbar, the Program Director of Global Qurban South Sulawesi. []
