According to most Muslims, Qurbani is obligatory upon every adult Muslim male or female who has wealth in excess to his or her needs. It stems from the tradition of sharing meat with family and the needy on Eid Ul Adha, culminating the blessed 10 days of Dhul Hijj.
The needs of the less fortunate are great, but if we all do our part, we can provide a meal or two for them. Qurbani is a good time to do that. Given the economic crisis in Lebanon, food security has become an even greater problem for a large portion of the already impoverished Syrian refugee community. This year (2020), Reaching Across Borders has performed Qurbani in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, and we were able to provide meat parcels to families in need.
