How your Qurbani donations help those in poverty
Last year you helped us reach more than 6 MILLION people with your Qurbani donations, Alhamdulillah!
This year the coronavirus has made it extremely difficult for some families to put food on the table, but your Qurbani donations could change that for them. Help give poor families a joyous Eid and a delicious meal with your generous donations!
Messages from the field
“I’d like to thank everyone who made this happen, I’m so happy to be home with my family on Eid and spend it with them. Thank you for this meat pack, we haven’t been able to buy meat for the last 3 years, so I am very grateful that we have it this year.” – Afzal Ali, India 2019.
Help us make Qurbani 2020 even more amazing than last year and help us keep our global ummah safe and fed during this global pandemic.
What is Qurbani?
Qurbani is the religious sacrifice of sheep, goats & cattle between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
It 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). Sacrificed meat is distributed among the poor and needy across the globe.
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 Islais often missed, resulting in its tremendous barakah being lost.
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)."
Where will my Qurbani be distributed?
We will also deliver your Qurbani to families struggling to make ends meet here at home in the UK.
This year, with COVID-19 affecting so many of our brothers and sisters, it is important that we all remember our responsibility to the less fortunate.
