Al Rajhi Banking & Investment Corporation (Malaysia) Bhd (alrajhi bank Malaysia) partnered with EZ Qurban Sdn Bhd, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), and IKIM to facilitate employee participation in the sacrificial deeds (ibadah qurban) in conjunction with Aidiladha recently.

Fostering Togetherness and Supporting the Asnaf

The collaborative effort allowed alrajhi bank Malaysia’s Muslim employees to contribute qurban meat and volunteer at the Mega Qurban Program held on 19 June 2024 at i-PUTRA UPM. Employees contributed a total of five (5) cattle for qurban purposes. The Bank’s team also actively participated in packing and distributing the meat to underprivileged families and individuals, fostering a sense of community and togetherness.

In all, the Mega Qurban Program saw the contribution of 50 cattle, with more than 3,200 1kg packets of meat being distributed. Ninety-five volunteers participated in portioning, packing, and distributing the meat, while more than 3,500 people attended the event.

Upholding Islamic Values and Caring for Society

“We are proud to have partnered with EZ Qurban Sdn. Bhd, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), and IKIM to offer our Muslim colleagues the opportunity to participate in this holy and sacred act of qurban,” said Syahrul Ishak, the Chief Executive Officer of alrajhi bank Malaysia. “This initiative aligns perfectly with our commitment to caring for society by supporting the well-being of the asnaf (eligible beneficiaries) in Malaysia. We hope that the contribution made by my colleagues and me towards the qurban will enable a more inclusive Aidiladha celebration for those in need.”

Enriching the Community

“This program also helps the poor and the asnaf among UPM students enjoy the sacrificial meat, and it directly has a positive impact on the entire community involved. The program gives international students the opportunity to experience Aidiladha festivities in Malaysia and foster a spirit of friendship between UPM students and staff in carrying out the qurban sacrifice,” said Prof. Dr. Alyani Ismail, Director of i-PUTRA.
