Qurban (Sacrifice)

Eid ulAdha is coming (8th Dec. 2008 by local rekoning). A time of 'sacrifice', in rememberence of Abraham sacrificing Ishmael in response to Allah's command.

As-Saaffat [37:102]
Then when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him, he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! do as thou art commanded: thou will find me if Allah so wills one practicing Patience and Constancy!"

As-Saaffat [37:103]
So when they had both submitted (to Allah), and He had laid Him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice)

As-Saaffat [37:107]
And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice:

At Surau An_Naim we are no different. We have also arranged for the sacrifice.

And the animals (cows are planned for) will be sacrificed on the Eid ulAdha after the Eid ulAdha prayers (most likely).

Surah Al-Kauther:
1. To thee have We granted the Fount (Of Abundance).
2. Therefore to thy Lord turn in Prayer and Sacrifice.
3. For he who hateth thee He will be cut off (from Future Hope).

Muslims of Wangsa Maju are encouraged to post articles and recordings.
