Qurbani is a significant ritual in the Islamic faith, which marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. It is a way of remembering Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as an act of obedience to God. Every year, Muslims around the world celebrate this occasion by sacrificing an animal, which is distributed among the poor and needy.
However, in many parts of the world, including Balochistan, Pakistan, poverty and lack of resources often prevent people from participating in this ritual. To address this problem, an online Qurbani shop has been established in Luni, Sibi, Balochistan, Pakistan, offering online Qurbani services to Muslims living in Melbourne, Australia.
The Qurbani shop operates on the principle of social responsibility and aims to help the poorest people of the world by purchasing animals from poor people and distributing meat to them. This helps to create a sustainable economic cycle by providing support to local farmers, while also addressing the issue of food insecurity in the region.
The Qurbani shop offers a wide range of services, including Aqiqah, Sadqa, Fitr, and Khirat. These services are designed to provide support to the poor and needy, while also helping Muslims fulfill their religious obligations. The Qurbani shop also provides visual proof of the performing and distribution of Qurbani to ensure transparency and accountability.
The process of performing Qurbani through the online Qurbani shop is simple and hassle-free. Muslims living in Melbourne, Australia, can visit the website and select the type of animal they want to sacrifice. The Qurbani shop then purchases the animal from a local farmer and arranges for its sacrifice in accordance with Islamic law.
Once the animal has been sacrificed, the meat is divided into three parts. One-third is distributed among the poor and needy in the local community, one-third is given to relatives and friends, and one-third is kept by the person who performed the Qurbani. The Qurbani shop ensures that the meat is distributed in a fair and equitable manner, with priority given to the poorest and most vulnerable members of society.
The Qurbani shop also offers a range of other services, including Aqiqah, which is the Islamic tradition of sacrificing an animal on the occasion of a child's birth. The meat is distributed among family, friends, and the poor, and the Qurbani shop provides visual proof of the performing and distribution of the Aqiqah.
Sadqa, Fitr, and Khirat are also offered by the Qurbani shop, providing Muslims with an opportunity to give back to their community and fulfill their religious obligations. Sadqa is a voluntary act of charity, while Fitr is a compulsory donation made at the end of Ramadan to support the poor and needy. Khirat is a donation made on behalf of a deceased loved one, which is distributed among the poor and needy.
