Eid al-Adha, also known as the "Festival of Sacrifice," is a major holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. It's a time of reflection, devotion, and generosity that commemorates Prophet Ibrahim's unwavering faith and willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God.

Eid al-Adha Tradition in Islam

The spirit of the celebration comes alive through a variety of traditions practiced by Muslims around the world. Here are some of the key practices:

Eid Prayers

Eid al-Adha commences with the joyous sounds of takbir, a phrase that glorifies Allah SWT. This joyous call to prayer fills the air as Muslims gather for special morning prayers, held in mosques or spacious open areas to accommodate the larger crowds.

The prayer itself differs from regular prayers by incorporating additional takbirs at specific points throughout the two rak'ahs, followed by a khutbah (sermon) delivered by the Imam.


This is the central act of Eid al-Adha, where Muslims sacrifice a sheep, goat, cow, or camel. The meat is then divided into three parts: one-third for the family, one-third for relatives and friends, and one-third for the less fortunate. This ensures everyone can partake in the celebratory meal and embodies the spirit of sharing.

Family and Community Gatherings

Eid al-Adha isn't just a celebration; it's a chance for families and communities to come together. Beyond strengthening family ties, it's a time to indulge in delicious dishes prepared with Qurban meat, sharing laughter and stories around the table.

Is Qurban Allowed in Australia?

Qurban is a recognized religious practice freely followed by Muslims in Australia. There are no restrictions on the religious aspects of the Qurban itself.

However, the Australian government prioritizes animal welfare and hygiene standards. To ensure these are met, regulations govern the slaughter of animals. These regulations apply to Qurban practices as well.

The slaughtering component must comply with these established regulations. Many Islamic organizations in Australia understand these requirements and offer Qurban services. These services ensure the animals are slaughtered humanely, hygienically, following all government guidelines, and then distribute the meat to those in need.
