Ikhlas Kamarudin, Head of IKHLAS said, “IKHLAS was founded with the vision to help Muslims around the globe practise their faith more conveniently. We are proud to introduce our new ‘Qurban with IKHLAS’ product which will enable any Muslim to easily fulfil their obligations and make the upcoming Eid Al-Adha a blissful day of giving and sharing.”
“Muslims slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow, bull or camel on this annual festival that stems from the story of the Prophet Abraham. The meat is then distributed in equal parts to the poor, to relatives, and consumed by the family themselves. The centuries-old festival is steeped in tradition, and we want to provide a more accessible way for muslims to perform their Qurban conveniently. Team IKHLAS will then work with our partners across 35 countries, to distribute the meat to the communities who are in need, enabling them to celebrate a more meaningful Eid Al-Adha.”
Each Qurban booked through ikhlas.com/qurban will also be awarded BIG Points (earn 1 BIG Point for every RM1 spent) and also a portion of the proceeds will be channeled to the ‘Give With Ikhlas’ donation drive to further help those who are in need. Each participant will also receive an official Qurban certificate indicating the exact location of the meat distribution. Participants can book their Qurban from now until 30th July 2020.
