On Wednesday 9th, the school organized an Aidiladha/Qurban event to commemorate the recent Aidiladha – in the name of loves of Prophet Ibrahim A.S. (Abraham) & Prophet Ismail A.S. (Ishmael) to ALLAH SWT, The Almighty. This was an annual event, triggered since last year and PIBG has been very adamant to make it as an annual event – to strengthen the ties between teachers and parents.
Like last year, my name was put under the “slaughtering” committee but of course, I just let the professionals did their work! And between takes, snapped some pictures. It was indeed an experience for me as a first-timer to witness how the alive cow being slaughtered in accordance to the holy ritual in Islam. It is so apparent that by slicing the exact veins as stipulated in Islam so that the blood will flow out a lot, the sufferings of the animal can be lessen (it will die faster) and the meat ain’t contaminated with blood infused with microorganisms! In comparison to the methods used by non-Moslems or heathens by electrifying the animals, or roasting them ALIVE using hot water are just tormenting for the animals. Islam does respect all living creatures, Subhanallah; only those who abuse the sanctity of Islam are smearing the good essences lie within.
Even non-Moslems pupils were enjoined in the event – only that for Hindu pupils, chickens were served instead of beefs. All in the spirit of 1 MALAYSIA and Islamic authentic preachings! (,”)
Like last year; after the slaughtering part took place, the meat were whisked to the cooking departments where teachers assemble to cook the meat into soups and various meat-delicacies for everyone in the school. The pupils were so hungry that they feasted on the rice, meat and assorted vegetables! As for teachers, we had “Soto”.
On whole, it was a nice piety as well as socially affairs. Allahu Akbar Walillah Ilham! (,”)
