Five cows, contributed by PBB Satok, and  another one,  contributed by the Petra Jaya

welfare body, were sacrificed during the “Korban” ceremony organised by the PBB Satok Religious Bureau.

In his speech at the launch of the ceremony, Abang Johari reminded the Muslim community to safeguard unity in recognition of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to obey God’s command to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of submission to God.

“The most important thing is to strengthen our unity,” he stressed.
