Muslims give back on Qurban festival

Eight cows stand in the pen of Mok Dach mosque on Chroy Changvar’s Tonle Sap street, ropes looped through their nose and over their necks, and fixed tightly onto the wooden poles around them. They graze calmly on hay, unaware of the fate that would befall them just a few minutes later. Eid-al-Adha, also commonly known as the Qurban festival in Southeast Asia, was celebrated on Friday in Cambodia at locations all over the country. Falling on the 10th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah on the Islamic calendar, it is a sacrifice festival to honour Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son as obedience to Allah. This is also the day that many Muslims make the pilgrimage to Mecca, a duty that all Muslims are required to discharge at least once in their life, if they are physically and financially capable.
