Islam being a way of life, means all Muslims must stay abreast of happenings locally and globally. We have to align ourselves with both the lunar and solar calendar. We have to follow the strong current to find the way we need to go.
So turn in prayer towards your Lord and sacrifice (animals). (108:2)
• There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgement with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground.
