practice of Qurbani began with the time of Prophet Ibrahim (PBU).
According to Muslim belief, one day Allah appeared to the Prophet
in his dreams and commanded him that his only son, IsmaiI be sacrificed.
The Prophet being a pious and a true believer was only willing to
do so. Allah was impressed by his intentions and he was blessed.
tradition continues even today. Faithful Muslims all over the world
submit to the will of Allah and sacrifice a part of their bounty
for the benefit of the less fortunate.
