Selamat EidulAdha

Me and a Charolais bull

And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah ; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful. Al-Hajj, Ayat 36

Their meat will not reach Allah , nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good. Al-Hajj, Ayat 37

On EidulAhda when we have most of members of my wife family, we will slaughter of Qurban. Last year we do not have one due to some unwelcomed comment from the previous year's qurban. Realising the situation, the one who passed the comment some sort of retrack the comment a month ago and so we have one this year even though the two of my sisters in-law that stay in Klang and Ampang did not come back to Kuala Dungun as the rotation rule them to be with husbands' families this EidulAdha.

As the decision to have qurban this year came in almost on the last day of October, we do not expect to have a good cow for Qurban. However, Fate has decided otherwise, there is a man who bought a Charolais bull for his daughter's wedding. However the groom-to-be has a change of heart or something and the wedding has to be called off. We bought the bull at a small discount ;)).
So almost the whole morning and a good part of the afternoon was spent with the qurban do. Evening saw us in Kubang Baroh KT and we travelled back to Kuala Dungun after sunset to prepare for the trip home Monday.

We prayed that our deed on the EidulAdha is accepted by Allah and that all our friends (who have been fortunate to grace the Arafah this EidulAdha) deeds are similarly accepted.. Now that remind me of PakMat who is also guest of Allah ..may his Haj be accepted or mabrur.

Have a nice week ahead.

Hi Wan Sharif, wow! First time I see these pics.
Should be able to feed lots of people too.
Good for you and friends doing this.
Best regards.

Tahun ini, keluarga kami pilih Somalia untuk qurban.
Hope it is accepted, insyaALLAH.

Wan Sharif said...

Brother Lee,
Always nice to have your comment.. it is as if you are keeping in touch with what is happening in Malaysia..
Yes the meat was distributed to kampung folks and the poor. There were folks who did not cook any meat that day unless it was a Qurban meat.
That happened to a close relative who have their proper meal for the day only after the meat I carried was cooked ;)

Wan Sharif said...

It seems that you have a better place (if not the best place) to have your Qurban..
May Allah accept your family's Qurban for this year, for years before this and also for the years ahead as well.

Dmarie said...

Wan Sharif said...

Mm menarik juga cerita orang losong haji mat shafiee bertandang ke kallang maras.. Saya pun selalu ke seberang baroh, kurang lebih 10 minit berjalan kaki ke masjid haji mat shafiee. Kakak dan ibu kesayangan berada di situ.. Kalau ada rezeki mungkin boleh terjumpa di pasar cabang tiga ;))).

Wan Sharif said...

Abang Hasan,
Daging tu sampai ke Tr untuk di agihkan oleh kakak saya di seberang baroh... Masa terlalu mencemburui untuk saya singgah di Kkalang Maras.. Izin Allah saya akan cuba yang lebih baik di masa masa mendatang..amiin..

Wan Sharif said...

Dmarie, it is always nice to have your comments.. I guess as far as the price and size of the bull.. I could not ask for a better turn of event ;)).
