ACTNews, JAKARTA – Every Muslim yearns to be able to perform Qurbani sacrifice, an act of worship that will be rewarded immensely by Allah. Many of probably never think that those who usually receive qurbani meat package also wish to be able to perform qurbani.
For many of them, it’s a dream that is difficult to fulfill due to the price of the qurbani animals that goes up each year.
Since 2016, Global Qurban initiated the Qurbani Alms program that enables people to give their qurbani to be sacrificed on behalf of others. “We initiated this program to enable those who wish to perform qurbani to donate their qurbani to be sacrificed on behalf of the poor,” said Desi Susanti of Global Qurban’s Partnership Network Department.
Global Qurban provides several conveniences to facilitate the Qurbani Performers, one of them is affordable price. Susanti mentioned that the price of the qurbani animal will be cheaper if we purchase it earlier.
According to Susanti, the Qurbani Alms gives a chance for everyone to reap the reward of performing Qurbani and bring benefits to many: those who give the alms will as well as those on behalf of whom the qurbani is sacrificed will get the rewards, and those who receive the qurbani meat will be happy for being able to savor the meat on the festive occasion.
“Those who wish to give qurbani to be sacrificed on behalf of others can purchase their qurbani animals earlier. The price will be significantly cheaper, for it is still in the period of the Progressive Qurbani. The earlier one buys the qurbani animals, the cheaper the price will be. It brings convenience for the qurbani performers and benefits to the qurbani meat recipients,” said Susanti.
The Progressive Qurbani period for 2019 has begun since September 2019 with the starting price of IDR 1,150,000 for goat and IDR 9,450,000 for cattle. The price will go up each month by IDR 50,000 for goat and IDR 350,000 for cattle.
“Hence, in April 2019, the price for goat is IDR 1,500,000 and the price for cattle is IDR 10,500,000,” explained Susanti.
To purchase Qurbani animals through Global Qurban, we can visit the site www.globalqurban.com as well as e-commerce sites that have partnered with Global Qurban. “Insha Allah, Global Qurban will keep making new innovations to bring convenience to those who wish to perform qurbani, both on behalf of themselves or other,” explained Susanti.
