SOASC sacrifices 1 buffalo and 7 goats

As the Feast of Sacrifice (also known as Hari Raya Aidil Adha) is celebrated throughout the world, we
in Brunei Darussalam also celebrates the event by holding sacrifices, and distributing the sacrificial
meat to the community in particular to those who are worthy of the meat, such as orphans and the
poor.

Yesterday the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Collage had celebrated the feast of sacrifice with the
distribution of 70 sacrificial meats to orphans, special needs students as well as members of the
school faculty and parents.

SOASC Principal Pg Hj Zahari Pg Hj Ahmad said that this is the first time that SOASC has been able to
organise the event where the sacrificial meat is cut up and distributed on school grounds.

He added that one buffalo and 6 goats had been sacrifice. He explained that with the activity been
held at the school grounds organised by the SOAS Collage and members of the Parent Teacher
Association, it has been a great, a group effort enhancing and fostering closer relations between
teachers and parents.

He explained that this is part of the Collage’s religious activity and social obligation to the
community where the collage hopes to continue this as a tradition in the years to come.

We have to remember that the feast of sacrifice is not only just about sacrificing animals and
distributing the meat to share throughout the community but also it is to remind us of the sacrifice
made by the Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail when they are obeying Allah’s orders.

Their sacrifices and rites are still being practiced today and has been made part of the fifth pillar of
Islam, the Hajj.

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN Khamis 18 November – Ibadah korban itu sebenarnya mendidik umat Islam
supaya bersifat dermawan dan murah hati, kerana semua nikmat yang ada pada hakikatnya adalah
pinjaman dan amanah Allah subahannawatalla yang kelak pasti akan diambilnya satu persatu, maka
segala nikmat yang ada diri sesorang itu hendaklah dimannfaatkan dengan sebaiknya.

Oleh itu bagi mereka yang mampu lakukanlah penyembelihan korban pada setiap tahun yang mana
dagingnya dijadikan sedekah kepada fakir miskin dan boleh dijadikan hadiah kepada orang-orang
yang mampu seperti jiran tertangga serta rakan taulan yang beragama Islam.

Sehubung dengan itu Makatab Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien telah mengdakan majlis korban sempena
Hari Raya Adil Adha dalam compound Maktab tersebut.

Pengetua Maktab SOAS mengatakan bahawa ini adalah kali pertama pihak Maktab bersama dengan
Persatuan Ibu Bapa dan guru telah mengadakan majlis korban di Maktab. Perancangan majlis
tersebut sudah lama dirancangkan akan tetapi hanya tahun ini dapat dikendalikan.

Beliau menjelaskan bahawa seekor kerbau dan enam ekor kambing telah disembelih dan dagingnya
diagihkan kepada 70 Orang penuntut fakir, miskin, serta yang berkeperluan khas dan guru-guru serta
ibu bapa.

Majlis tersebut merupakan salah satu aktiviti keugamaan Maktab SOAS yang mana bertujuan untuk
mengeratkan lagi silaturrahim dikalangan guru-guru, penuntut-penuntut dan juga ibu bapa. Majlis
tersebut juga dengan tidak langsung mengalakkan aktiviti bergotong royong dikomuniti kita ini.
