Jakarta, Armfalcon.com – In just a matter of days, Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Fitr. And don’t forget that, in two months there will be a celebration of Eid al-Adha.
For those who celebrate Eid al-Adha and are financially able, Muslims must set aside money to sacrifice. It’s no secret that the price of sacrificial animals is certainly not cheap, especially if it’s approaching the holidays.
To anticipate this, buying sacrificial animals in advance is the solution. But what can be done if at this time our financial burden is increasing due to activities on Eid al-Fitr? Here’s the review.
Save per day or per week
There are only two months left for you to raise money to buy sacrificial animals. One way you can do this is by saving a certain amount of money every week.
Let’s just say, the price of the goat for the sacrifice you want to buy is valued at IDR 2.7 million. So set a target of saving Rp. 337,000 for sacrificial animals each week, so that ahead of Eid al-Adha, you can already buy them.
Apart from saving per week, you can also try to save in a matter of days. If you have to buy a sacrificial animal in the next two months, you can still set aside IDR 50,000 per day from now on.
Use savings instruments or money market mutual funds to save, avoid using high-risk investment instruments or gold.
Immediately set aside money to buy sacrificial animals after this month’s payday
If saving regularly is quite difficult, then one effective way is to set aside money equal to the value of your sacrificial animal after you receive this month’s salary.
You can put the money set aside into a mutual fund instrument and withdraw it two months later before the holidays.
Buy at zakat, infaq, and alms management institutions
Buying sacrificial animals at traders is indeed at risk of increasing prices ahead of Eid al-Adha. To anticipate this, you can purchase sacrificial animals at zakat, infaq, and alms management institutions.
In general, the price of sacrificial animals offered by these institutions will not increase. Not infrequently, they can also give you a discount, if you intend to buy it in advance.
