What is Qurbani? Qurban is the ritual slaughtering of livestock — sheep, cows, bulls, goats, camels, etc — on specific days of the Islamic calendar. The practice of Qurbani can be traced back to the time of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) when he dreamt that Allah ordered him to sacrifice his son, Ismail.
