Eid-ul-Adha has ended since over a week now yet the meat distribution activities and drives continue is different countries across the world.This occasion is also referred to as the “Festival of Sacrifice”. It marks the remembrance of Hazrat Ibrahim’s (AS) willingness to sacrifice Hazrat Ismail (AS) as an act of obedience to the command that had been made by Allah (SWT); on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah.

As we all know, Eid ul Adha is not only meant to sacrifice the animals and enjoy the festivities; rather there are other higher religious and moral obligations. Muslims are instructed to remember their poor brothers who are not capable of sacrificing in the way of Allah due to financial or other constraints. According to the Sunnah, the meat is divided into Three shares; one for the family, one for relatives and the third one is reserved for the poor people of the community (both Muslim and non-Muslim alike).
