1. What is Qurbani?

The Prophet (saw) was once asked: “What is Qurbani?”

The Prophet (saw) replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (swt).” [Tirmidhi]


The practice of sacrifice can be traced back to the Prophet Ibrahim (as) who dreamt that Allah (swt) ordered him to sacrifice his son, Ismail (as).

In his devotion to Allah (swt), Ibrahim (as) agreed to perform the sacrifice. Upon being told of his father’s dream, Ismail (as) himself even showed willingness to comply for the sake of Allah (swt).

However, when Ibrahim (as) went to carry out the sacrifice, Allah (swt) intervened and sent a ram in Ismail’s (as) place.

The continued act of sacrifice acts as a reminder of Ibrahim’s (as) and Ismail’s (as) obedience to Allah (swt).

 

2. What are the days and times for Qurbani?

The days of Qurbani are the 10th, 11th and 12th of Dhul Hijjah. The first day is better than the second, and the second better than the last. 


The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: “The first thing that we do on the day of Eid is to perform the prayers. Then we go home and carry out our Qurbani. Thus whoever does those acts has conformed to our Sunnah. And for those who slaughtered before it, then the meat is for the family members and not as an act of Qurbani.” [Bukhari]


You can order your Qurbani with Penny Appeal at any time before Eid, which is permissible, and we’ll ensure the sacrifice is carried out on the right day. 


3. Who has to give Qurbani?

All Muslim adults who are sane and eligible to pay Zakat must make the sacrifice.


4. Which animals can be sacrificed?

Qurbani animals must be a goat, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, water buffalo) or camel.


5. Can a sick animal be offered as Qurbani?

All animals for Qurbani must be in good health and free from any problems with their eyes, bones, and limbs. All our Qurbani animals are well cared for and thoroughly checked to ensure they are suitable.


6. How is the slaughter performed?

To be accepted as Qurbani the animals must be slaughtered in the appropriate Islamic way.


7. Where is Penny Appeal performing Qurbanis?

We perform Qurbanis in several countries across Africa and Asia and the Middle East.

 

Some of the meat will be preserved and packaged with a shelf life of over 1 year, so we can continue to feed vulnerable people throughout the year. 

 

** If you would like to donate your Qurbani to any of these specific countries, the following prices apply: **

Afganistan: £59

Azad Kasmir: 59:

Bangladesh: £45 - £59

8. Can I choose which animal will be sacrificed for my Qurbani?

The availability of animals and local preferences determine which animals are slaughtered so it is not possible to specify.


9. Who receives the Qurbani meat?

All the fresh, succulent Qurbani meat benefits local poor and needy families, allowing them to share the celebration of Eid with us. The Qurbani meat may be handed out so that families can make a hot, nutritious meal for Eid, or our teams may organise community meals where we prepare and cook hot, nutritious meals for needy people in the area.


10. Can a Qurbani be made on behalf of another person?

Absolutely! You may give Qurbani on behalf of someone else, including a deceased Muslim. You can also give Qurbani in the name of The Prophet (saw). However, this must be done in addition to your own Qurbani.


11. Should I avoid anything in the 10 days before Eid al-Adha?

During this time you should not cut your hair or nails or remove parts of the skin.


12. What is the deadline for giving Qurbani?

We can take Qurbani donations before and during all three days of Eid.


13. How many people are fed with each Qurbani?

One Qurbani will provide approximately 57 meals. A Qurbani is 1/7 of a large cattle or camel, or a whole sheep or goat.


14. Can I pay for Qurbani with my Zakat or sadaqah?

No, Qurbani is a separate obligation.


15. Will I get a receipt or feedback?

We’ll send you a receipt to confirm your Qurbani but we are unable to provide notification when individual Qurbanis have been completed.
