A simple approach to every Diabetic’s nightmare: blood sugar control

A TIME OF SACRIFICE

A SIMPLIFIED GUIDE TO PERFORMING QURBANI

Qurbani (or Udhiyya as the Shariah refers to it) has become synonymous with Eid-ul-Adha, the festival of sacrifice.  It is a time when all Muslims all over the world commemorate the ultimate sacrifice of Nabi Ebrahim (AS) and Nabi Ismail (AS).  However it is disheartening to learn that Muslims fail to respect the basic rights of animals and are ignorant of Islamic injunctions pertaining to sacrifice.  Many a times Muslims through their actions unconsciously transgress the Shari’ah.   This guide hopes to be a reminder to Muslims of these basic rules and the responsibilities of those performing Qurbani. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran (Chapter 22 Verse37): ‘It is nor their flesh, nor their blood that reaches Allah, but to Him is acceptable observance (piety) of duty on your part.’
