Aidiladha 2009 Event

On 27 November 2009 Friday, here in Malaysia celebrate the Muslim religious event – Aidiladha or in Malaysia we called Hari Raya Korban. On the morning we perform our Aidiladha prayers at the mosque. Below are the HDR photo of Sultan Mizan mosque praying hall I took yesterday at Putrajaya.


Aidiladha also commemorate the sacrifices made by the prophet Ibrahim (the word “korban” which means sacrifice), who demonstrated immense faith when he was test by God (Allah S.W.T ). The prophet was commanded to sacrifice his only son Ismail and his son Ismail also agrees what his father is doing to fulfill God command. Though Ibrahim grieves him greatly, he made ready to perform the task. However, as he was about to strike his son, God stopped him through an angel and revealed that it was a trial. Ismail life was spared, and an animal called ‘kibas’ like a sheep or goat to replace Ismail for sacrifice.

As such, during Aidiladha, the sacrifice of animals such as lambs, goats, cows, bulls and camels is performed. The animals are slain in accordance with the proper religious rites; the meat is then distributed to the family that participate, the neighborhood and most important to the poor that lives around. Below are the photo of the ‘korban’ which held at Surau Al-Ittihadiyyah, seksyen 9 Shah Alam Selangor on Saturday. The picture was taken with compact digital camera by my brother in-laws.

The first picture is my sister who performs her ‘korban’ part for this year and was listening to the explanation of the ‘korban’ leader. The animals that being chosen to be sacrifice is a cow. About 21 cows was being sacrifice for that day involving many volunteers from the seksyen 9 Shah Alam community.

The cow first to tied with a rope and put on the custom made trolley that being made purposely for the slain in accordance with the proper religious rites. Below are the cow before and after being slain.

    This is a nice little camera, easily fits in your pocket. Takes quick and great pictures. Only it has limited zoom (3x). But the quality of images is really good and its worth the price.
