1. Where in Palestine are the dates grown?
All our sweet and juicy dates have been grown for generations by traditional Palestinian farmers in the fertile pastures of the land of Jericho, famous for its natural spring water. The Dates are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals and packed with super food energy and flavour.
The farmers who grow our Palestinian Dates generally have just a small plot of land, which they rely on as their main source of income. At Penny Appeal, we ensure that they receive a fair wage, so they can provide for their families and maintain a thriving business.
However, it’s not just the farmers who we will help from your support. With more money to spend locally on goods and services by the farmers, other businesses will receive new income, which in turn will boost the local economy, benefitting the whole community.
All money from the purchase of the Dates will go to Palestine, along with 100% of the profits going towards Palestinian projects. In particular, by purchasing the Dates, you will help fund Penny Appeal’s mobile water tanker, supplying clean fresh water to schools and hospitals, support orphan sponsorship projects that look after children orphaned by recent conflict and rebuilding damaged
To raise vital funds for the people of Palestine. With your help, we want to rebuild destroyed buildings and facilities, provide clean water to areas cut off from national supplies and provide safe homes for children who have lost family members in the recent conflict.

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
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
However, when Ibrahim (as) went to carry out the sacrifice, Allah (swt) intervened and sent a ram in Ismail’s (as
The continued act of sacrifice acts as a reminder of Ibrahim’s (as) and Ismail’s (as) obedience to Allah (swt).
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.
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.
To be accepted as Qurbani the animals must be slaughtered in the appropriate Islamic way.
We perform Qurbanis in several countries across Africa and Asia and the Middle East.
We do fresh meat distribution in Ethiopia and India where
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.
We process the Qurbani meat and distribute ready to eat meals. The Qurbani is offered in India and Ethiopia and meat is shipped to Emirates. Here it is processed and pouched into ready to eat meals and then shipped to any location we chose. This year the pouches will be distributed to Pakistan and Syria.

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.
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.
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, including during the winter months.
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) or his family members. However, this must be done in addition to your own Qurbani.
During this time you should not cut your hair or nails or remove parts of the skin.
We can take Qurbani donations before and during all three days of Eid.
One Qurbani will provide approximately 57 meals. A Qurbani is 1/7 of a large cattle or camel, or a whole sheep or goat.
No, Qurbani is a separate obligation.
We’ll send you a receipt to confirm your Qurbani but we are unable to provide notification when individual Qurbanis have been completed.
