Join Shaykh Abu Bakr Al Shateri and donate your Qurbani from just £29
All Muslim adults who are eligible to pay Zakat must make an animal sacrifice. By giving your Qurbani, you are fulfilling your religious obligation to provide quality, nutritious food to the poor in Asia, Africa and in the UK.
What is Qurbani?
It's the religious sacrifice of sheep, goats and cattle between the tenth and twelfth days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
Qurbani is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) and their story of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (SWT).
Penny Appeal distributes sacrificed meat among the poor and needy in Africa, Aisa and families struggling to make ends meet here, at home in the UK.
A single Qurbani donation can provide 57 nutritious meals, and supply protein-filled meat for those that have limited access to it throughout the year.
Who is Qurbani Compulsory for?
Qurbani holds a special place in Islam. It is stressed upon the Qur’an and is a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s (as) devotion and obedience.
For many scholars, Qurbanis an obligation for all Muslims who possess the Zakat threshold. Despite this, its critical role within Islam is often missed, resulting in its tremendous barakah being lost.
When is Qurbani?
It is advisable to give as early as possible to make sure you can give your Qurbani where you want it to go.
The time for offering the sacrifice begins after the Eid prayer on Eid-al-Adha, which this year is 20 July, and ends when the sun sets on the thirteenth of Dhu'l-Hijjah.
There are four days of sacrifice, the day of Eid-al-Adha and the three days after it.
