ACTNews, JAKARTA – Eid-ul-Adha is coming. Muslims around the world are joyful. Who wouldn’t want to prepare for this wonderful occasion as well as possible? Everyone would want to perform qurbani to distribute qurbani meat packages that can benefit the needy.
However, have we ever thought that, deep in their hearts, the recipients of the qurbani meat packages are also yearning to perform their own qurbani? Those who are eligible for qurbani meat are also longing to follow the example of Prophet’s Ibrahim’s obedience by performing qurbani.
In contrast, near Eid-ul-Adha, amidst the bustling economic activities in big cities, there are those who are able to perform qurbani every year. They have the means to purchase sacrificial animals even long time before the day of celebration comes.
While it is true that performing qurbani is an act of great reward, there is also another act that can be rewarded immensely and will bring even wider benefits: performing qurbani on behalf of others, on behalf of those who are unable to purchase their own sacrificial animals. Such program is initiated by Global Qurban, named Qurbani Donation.
Since 2016, Global Qurban has initiated this program, which facilitates people to purchase qurbani animals to be slaughtered on behalf of the needy, or those who are dear to them, such as teachers, preachers, to the soldiers at the frontiers of our country.
“It is very easy to do it. All you need to do is to purchase qurbani animals to be sacrificed on their behalf to help them realize the dream of performing this supererogatory act that they have been yearning to perform. The people on whose behalf the qurbani will be performed can be chosen by the people who purchase the animals or they can also let Global Qurban choose it,” said Muhammad Basair of Global Qurban.
The animals that will be sacrificed can be chosen by the purchasers. A goat or sheep can be sacrificed on behalf of one person. The prices of the animals are the same with the prices of the Regular Qurbani animals: IDR 1,700,000 for a goat and sheep, and IDR 11,900,000 for a cow or bull.
When can the Qurbani Donation be done?
It can be done at any time, even days before Eid-ul-Adha. Even if people want to purchase the animals to be sacrificed on Eid-ul-Adha next year, they are also able to do that.
Basair stated that this program is to realize Global Qurban’s vision that everyone can perform qurbani. Additionally, such program will benefit more people. The ones who purchase the animals receive the reward for their donation; the people on behalf of whom the qurbani is performed receive the qurbani rewards, and the recipients of the qurbani meat packages can celebrate Eid-ul-Adha with delicious qurbani dishes.
“The Qurbani Donation can be purchased via any bank account. All you need to do is to transfer the money to Global Qurban’s bank accounts and confirm your Qurbani Donation,” Basair added in an interview with ACTNews team in late July.
It’s only weeks before Eid-ul-Adha arrives. Have we strengthened our intention to perform qurbani? Are you inspired to Donate you Qurbani on behalf of others?
