Yayasan Ikhlas distributed Korban meat to 3,574 families
Korban Ikhlas organized by Yayasan Ikhlas this year involved 51 cows to benefit 3,574 families around Ranau, Kuala Penyu, Kota Kinabalu, Semporna, Sandakan, Kota Belut and Kudat, Sabah.
The program known as Korban Ikhlas 2022 was also attended by the Mufti of Sabah, Datuk Ustaz Bungsu @ Aziz Jaafar.
Chairman of Yayasan Ikhlas, Prof. Dr. Zainur Rashid Zainuddin, said the korban meat was the result of the participation of all Malaysians.
He added that 16 Yayasan Ikhlas staff from the Peninsula and Borneo had worked together to relaunch the program.
“The focus of the distribution of Korban meat is in rural areas to help Muslim and non -Muslim as well as residents who are difficult and unable to taste the Korban meat.
“The Korban ritual this time is quite meaningful when the Sabah Mufti himself has slaughtered several cows,” he said in a statement issued yesterday.
According to Prof. Dr. Zainur Rashid, ten cows were slaughtered in Sandakan, seven cows were distributed to squatter areas, and the meat of one cow was distributed in urban areas to the poor.
Two more cows were slaughtered with the cooperation of the Sabah Branch Marine Force to be distributed to the residents of Kampung Berhala and Kampung Simura.
Meanwhile, Datuk Ustaz Bungsu explained that the distribution of Korban meat was also distributed to non -Muslim asnaf families, and it was in line with the decision of the Sabah Fatwa Muzakarah Council, which was decided several years ago.
