Korban rites happens on the day of Eid Al Adha. Eid Al Adha marks the end of the hajj pilgrimage period, thus it is also called Hari Raya Haji (festival of the pilgrimage) in Malay Language.
The history of Korban ritual returns back to the time of prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him – pbuh). It is to commemorate the willingness of prophet Ibrahim (pbuh) to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail (pbuh) in obedience to Almighty Allah. The practice of Korban was made an injunction in the 2nd year after the Muslims’ migration to Medina. Hence Eid Al Adha is also called the Festival of Sacrifice.
A Muslim can offer either a goat/sheep, or one seventh of a cow/buffalo or camel as korban animal. Impaired animals cannot be slaughtered for korban rite.
