Hari Raya Haji 2022

On Hari Raya Haji or Eid Al-adha, Muslims will congregate in mosques to listen to sermons and offer their prayers. The most important ritual is the ‘korban’ (sacrifice).

Korban is the act of sacrificing livestock such as sheeps, goats and lambs. These sacrifices will be distributed among worshippers and needy appropriately. This act is done in reminder of the Prophet Ibrahim, who piously offered up his own son to fulfill God’s command. God noted his genuine deed and saved his son by replacing him with livestock.
