The act of sacrificing animals at Eid al-Adha was used as an opportunity by the Selangor Zakat Board (LZS) to explain its significance to some 30 muallaf (Muslim converts) on 23th August 2018.

The Qurban Perdana programme organised by LZS and held at the Surau Khalid Al-Walid of the Selangor Police Contingent Headquarterters (JPK) Malaysia.

“Some 21 cows and 21 goats were slaughtered, with 80 asnaf individuals from Selangor, including 30 muallaf, receiving 2kg of meat each,” said LZS chief coordinating officer.

He said: “We used this approach to give those new to the faith an understanding of the merits of the sacrifice.”
