3 Reasons to Send Money This Eid Al-Adha

Eid Al Adha is a special time of year for Muslims all over the world. It is celebrated to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s sacrifice after he was tested by God. The celebration also marks the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca, Saudi Arabia and is known as The Feast of Sacrifice.

Eid Al-Adha is the longest Eid celebration of the year, lasting four days. Muslim families around the world spend these four days with loved ones and send Eid greetings to family and friends all over the world.

Sending money overseas is just as important as reaching out to loved ones. Here are three reasons why you should send money this Eid.



1. Gift Qurbani to those who need it the most

Qurbani is the sacrifice of sharing meat with your family and the poor, at the end of the Hajj season, for the Eid-Al Adha feast. Most Muslims believe that in addition to paying Zakat, every Muslim male and female must perform Qurbani. Gifting Qurbani through remittance to family members and friends in need is very important, and it is a key part of Eid Al-Adha tradition.
