We are fast approaching that special occasion which graces us only once a year – the occasion of ‘Eidul Adha or qurbaani.

As the countdown commences, the planning and preparations begin and the atmosphere is charged with excitement and joy. While the adults are locating the knives, hooks, buckets, aprons, overalls, gumboots, arranging for the carcasses to be sliced and the meat stored, etc., the children are probably running to and fro in a state of excitement. They eagerly pull on their gumboots and walk amidst the animals, ‘inspecting’ and ‘choosing’ their animals. Likewise, they beg their fathers to take them to other homes and farms so that they can see who has the biggest bull or grandest goat.

Imagine that it’s your only brother getting married. Excitement is in the air and all are eagerly anticipating the marriage. The day of the waleemah arrives and you sit surrounded by your beloved family on this most joyous occasion. As the food arrives, however, your heart sinks and your face drops.

“Oh No!” you think in dismay. The caterers, as usual, have made the food literally “swim” in oil. In fact, it seems that they were even more liberal with the oil than usual.
