About Qurban (Udhiyah)
SimplyIslam is organising a Qurban (Udhiyah) project. The Qurban or Udhiyah is a Sunnah Muakkadah (highly recommended act) according to the majority of Islamic scholars. One sacrifice is sufficient on behalf of all the family members especially for the head of the household. [Click here for more info on Qurban or Udhiyah]
SimplyIslam Qurban Project
Alhamdulillah, for the 6th year running SimplyIslam will be organising the Qurban project in Indonesia to raise funds for Pesantren Darul Hikmah (Islamic Boarding School) in Mojokerto (near Surabaya, Indonesia). This project is in collaboration with the eminent Ustaz Masruhan Kyai Choteb and Pesantren Darul Hikmah.
How the Qurban Project Helps
The funds raised for Pesantren Darul Hikmah will be utilised for the maintenance of over 1000 students studying at the school. These students pursue both academic and Islamic studies at the school, including some pursuing the Hafiz or memorisation of the Qur’an program. While some of these students are also boarding students, most of them come from poor and needy families. The meat will be distributed to the students and residents around the Pesantren.

[From Website of Islamic Religious Council of Singapore] Q: Is it permissible for one to perform Qurban overseas such as in Indonesia?
A: The Qurban is a recommended act. It is also recommended that the performer of the Qurban sacrifices the animal himself. If unable, another may perform the sacrifice on behalf of the person performing the Qurban. It is also recommended that the person performing Qurban to witness the sacrifice itself and pray that Allah accepts that act as an ibadah. However, if one is also unable to witness the sacrifice, his/her act is still valid and it will, insya Allah be accepted. This includes Ritual sacrifices done anywhere in the world.
