The act of performing Korban is sunnah and is highly encouraged. By performing it locally, jemaah are able to witness the rites and reflect on the meaning and lessons behind the rites together with their family. In addition, he is able to celebrate the gotong-royong spirit (spirit of togetherness) at the mosques, partake in acts of compassionate giving by sharing the meat with his neighbours and less fortunate families. This will in turn uphold the virtues and teachings of Islam here in Singapore.
We are confident that our niat (intention) to hold annual Korban in Singapore will be protected through the community’s support and understanding. JKMS will continue to facilitate supply of livestock for the Korban.
