لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنَافِعَ لَهُمْ وَيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَعْلُومَاتٍ عَلَىٰ مَا رَزَقَهُمْ مِنْ بَهِيمَةِ الْأَنْعَامِ ۖ فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْبَائِسَ الْفَقِيرَ ﴿٢٨﴾
٢٨ - تاکہ اپنے فائدے کے کاموں کے لئے حاضر ہوں۔ اور (قربانی کے) ایام معلوم میں چہار پایاں مویشی (کے ذبح کے وقت) جو خدا نے ان کو دیئے ہیں ان پر خدا کا نام لیں۔ اس میں سے تم خود بھی کھاؤ اور فقیر درماندہ کو بھی کھلاؤ .
[22:28] That they may witness benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah on known days over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. So eat of them and feed the miserable and poor.
