When all this process was done, they gave much of meat away to poor people, neighbors and far family members while they retained some for themselves. One thing that I observed very closely is that when they kill a lamb they have to say Bsm Allah Alrahman Alraheem which means by the God’s name the merciful. They is said such that God can bless them.
