Rites of Sacrifice Strengthens the Ummah’s Solidarity

Sacrifing korban animals is an act that is highly commended by Islam to express gratitude for all the blessings from Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala. Those who perform the rites of sacrifice are those who are included among pious people who are guaranteed a place in Heaven.

As the rites of sacrifice is performed only in Zulhijjah, those who can afford it take the opportunity to earn blessings from Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala that are far more valuable than wealth or property. This can be clearly seen as the number of individuals performing the rites of sacrifice increased year after year.

The rites of sacrifice performed at home will act as a medium to foster closer relations among family members and the community. It becomes more meaningful when family members get together for the ceremony, a traditional practice in Brunei Darussalam that can strengthen family relations. Apart from that, it can also educate children especially the younger generation to always help out during such ceremonies.

The rites of sacrifice educates individual to be benevolent and philanthropic, and not be attached to wealth. Apart from that, it can also instil a caring attitude as well as attentiveness towards the society and strengthen solidarity among the ummah.
