The Prophet’s Teachings (PBUH)

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

“One who strives to help the widows and the poor is like the one who fights in the way of Allah.”

(Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Our Campaign's Goal

Our mission is to ensure that the blessings of Eid al-Adha reach the most vulnerable members of our society. This year, we are focusing our efforts on:

Refugee Communities

Many refugees are displaced from their homes and lack the means to celebrate Eid. Your Qurbani will bring them joy and a sense of normalcy.

Low-Income Families

We strive to help families facing financial hardships to experience the happiness of Eid by providing them with nutritious meat.

Disaster-Stricken Areas

In areas affected by natural disasters or conflict, Qurbani provides essential sustenance and hope to those who have lost so much.

FAQs

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani, also known as Udhiyah, is the Islamic ritual of sacrificing an animal – a goat, sheep, cow, or camel – during Eid al-Adha.

This act commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah.

The meat is then shared with family, friends, and the less fortunate.

Is Udhiyah (Qurbani) Obligatory?

Scholars have differed on the ruling regarding the sacrifice of an animal during Eid al-Adha (Udhiya). Is it obligatory, meaning one sins by omitting it? Or is it a highly recommended act, meaning it’s discouraged to omit it? The most accurate view is that it is a highly recommended act.

For the sacrifice to be either obligatory or recommended, the person offering it must be financially capable. This means the cost of the sacrifice should be surplus to their needs and the needs of those they provide for.

There is no difference in this regard between men and women. If a woman lives alone or with her children, then the responsibility for the sacrifice falls on them.

When can I donate for Qurbani?

The ideal time for Qurbani is during the days of Eid al-Adha, which are the 10th, 11th, and 12th of Dhul Hijjah (the last month of the Islamic calendar).

These are the days specifically designated for this act of worship.

However, to ensure your Qurbani is performed smoothly and efficiently, we encourage you to donate in advance. This allows us to plan logistics, procure healthy animals, and make necessary arrangements to reach the communities in need.

Can I donate on behalf of someone else (deceased or living)?

Yes, you can donate Qurbani on behalf of a living person with their permission. You can also donate on behalf of a deceased person, and this is considered a highly virtuous act.

Where will my Qurbani be distributed?

Your Qurbani will be distributed to those most in need in several countries, including Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Bangladesh, and Gaza.

We prioritize areas affected by conflict, poverty, and natural disasters, working with trusted local partners to ensure your Qurbani reaches families facing hardship and brings them joy and sustenance during Eid al-Adha.

Will I receive proof of my Qurbani?

Yes, you will receive confirmation of your Qurbani donation. Whenever possible, you will also receive photos or videos of the Qurbani distribution.

Please note that there may be a delay of several days in receiving this evidence due to the sorting and documentation processes involved. Technical conditions, such as internet access in the distribution areas, can also affect the timing.

Can I donate a portion of the Qurbani animal?

Yes, you can donate a portion of a larger animal like a cow or camel. A cow is equivalent to seven shares, and a camel to ten shares.

How do you select the recipients of the Qurbani?

We work with local partners and community leaders in the targeted areas to identify the most vulnerable families, including refugees, widows, orphans, and those facing financial hardship.

Our aim is to ensure that the Qurbani reaches those who need it most and will benefit the most from it.
