Qurbani means sacrifice. Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of Allah (swt)
“Once our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was asked, what is Qurbani? The Prophet (SAW) answered: ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)” - Tirmidhi
Last year £23,710 was raised for our Qurbani appeal which meant we were able to help an estimated 1,500 families, feeding around 9,000 individual beneficiaries. Some of the countries we supported included; Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir, Sri Lanka, Yemen, Chad, Nigeria, Somalia, Tanzania.
With Allah’s (swt) blessings and the generosity of donations, the vulnerable benefited from the distribution of fresh meat from the animals sacrificed during the days of Eid Ul Adha.
Eid-ul-Adha is a time of reflection, prayer and celebration of the blessings we have in our lives. Muslims who pay Zakat are encouraged to sacrifice an animal to feed others and in particular the poor and needy.
This year many individuals and families are still being affected by the COVID pandemic. Will you help us to reach these vulnerable families and provide them with essential food for Eid?
Your donation can make all the difference
Due to Covid-19 issues, ordering of the animals and arranging logistics need to happen sooner. Please do note the earlier than usual closing date for orders stated below.
Qurbani is a religious sacrifice of an animal on the days of Eid-ul-Adha as an offering to Allah (swt). Prophet Muhammad (saw) performed this rite and Muslims today continue to follow his example.
Qurbani sacrifices happen every year between the morning of the 10th & the sunset of the 13th day of Dhul-Hijjah.
Donating your Qurbani can provide meat to people living in some of the most disadvantaged regions of the world, where many people are suffering from poverty and starvation. In many cases it is the only time of year they receive meat.
According to most Muslims, Qurbani is obligatory on each adult Muslim who pays Zakat.
Qurbani animals have shares. Sheep and goats have one share each, camel and cattle each have seven shares.
