Qurbani Blessings Reached Conflict Areas in Nigeria

11 July 2018

ACTNews, ADAMAWA Eid-ul-Adha 2017 arrived in September, a time when the rainy season is estimated to begin in Nigeria. Rainy season is supposed to be the time when people prepare to cultivate their lands to grow millet, a staple food for the Nigerians.

Unfortunately, the spirit to start cultivating the land had to dampen.

In recent years, several Nigerian states are ridden with fear. Conflicts have spread like fire in Nigeria, triggered by terrorist attack and ethnic clashes. The north side of Nigeria becomes the center of the conflict, a region with Muslim majority population.

The impact is great. The ethnic conflict since 2016 has killed more than 2,500, forcing 62,000 civilians to flee from their houses. This number does not include the casualties and refugees caused by terrorist attacks since 2009.

Last year, Global Qurban served Adamawa

In the first week of September 2017, Global Qurban team visited Adamawa, a state in northeast Nigeria. Located at the center of the conflicts in Nigeria, qurbani in Adamawa was humble yet full of blessings.

Hamid Ahamad Kanneh, a representative for Global Qurban in northeast Nigeria, said that the dishes from the qurbani meat were much awaited by those living iin the barren region of Adamawa. In his report, Kanneh wrote that the number of Muslims in Adamawa reached more than 10.8 million people.

Since the day of Eid-ul-Adha until the third day afterwards, 1,110 Nigerians in three different districts (Adamawa, Lagos, and Mawo) received qurbani meat packages from Global Qurban.

Sheikh Abdullah Musa, a local imam from Adamawa, said that the qurbani meat would be able to supply their nutritional needs apart from millet. In September 2017, the millet harvest is darkened with fear as the farmers have to work unguarded in the middle of the field.

“The attacks from the extremists can’t be predicted when or where they will be committed. We can’t work too far away from the watch of the locals. From local televisions, we heard that there are 15 million Nigerian civilians that have been victimized by the violence committed by the extremists in north Nigeria. We are afraid that our family and we will become the next victims,” said Abdullah Musa.

 

A few months prior to last year’s qurbani, Kanneh also told us about series of terror attacks in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe.

“In July 2017, every day we heard about suicide bombings and terror attacks towards innocent civilians. Ironically, many of these attacks hit IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps,” wrote Kanneh in his report.

The communal conflict in northern Nigeria has been raging for nine years. Until less than two months before Eid-ul-Adha 2018, there’s no sign that the conflict is going to end. Kanneh explained that the conflict has forced more than two million Nigerians to flee from their homes, strangling them with poverty and malnutrition.

A challenge to deliver qurbani to Nigeria

The crisis has not stopped. The condition in Nigeria gets even worse every year. According to Deutsche Welle, the core strength of Nigeria lies on rural areas, in the hands of farmers and cattle breeders.

The more farmers and livestock breeders who lost their jobs due to the conflict, the more will starvation cripple the life of the Nigerians.

“Last year, I don’t remember for how long my family and I had to survive without any food. Although the conflict is deteriorating, I am optimistic that everything will get better next year,” said Ghani, a civilian from northern Nigeria.

The complex social problems in Nigeria becomes the very reason why Global Qurban is coming back to Nigeria on the day of Eid-ul-Adha 1439 AH. Firdaus Guritno of Global Humanity Response (GHR) – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) said that the Muslim communities in northern Nigeria will be the main target of the qurbani distribution in 2018.

“Insha Allah, Global Qurban will return to Nigeria. In the midst of malnutrition, raging conflicts, and terror attacks, Muslims in northern Nigeria are living under oppression. The majority of the population in the IDP camps are women and children,” concluded Guritno. []
