IKHLAS, a new line of business under AirAsia, provides Qurban services online—right on time for Eid al-Adha on 30th July. The Qurban will be distributed as meat packages to less fortunate individuals and families in over 35 countries.
“IKHLAS was founded with the vision to help Muslims around the globe practise their faith more conveniently. We are proud to introduce our new ‘Qurban with IKHLAS’ product which will enable any Muslim to easily fulfil their obligations and make the upcoming Eid Al-Adha a blissful day of giving and sharing,” said Ikhlas Kamarudin, Head of IKHLAS.
Qurban translates to slaughtering livestock on Eid al-Adha with the intention of ‘taqarrub’ (seeking closeness to God). It also includes sharing the meat with family, friends and the poor and underprivileged.
The countries that IKHLAS will be distributing the meat packages to include Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Sudan, Morocco, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Chad, Mali, Somalia, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Nepal, Malawi, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo and Pakistan.
As the company is a part of AirAsia, each Qurban booked will also be awarded BIG Points (earn 1 BIG Point for every RM1 spent). A portion of the proceeds will also be given to the ‘Give With Ikhlas’ donation drive.
