Find out more about Dhul Hijjah and Qurbani and how you can prepare properly for this time of giving.



This section provides a brief summary of issues and common questions related to Qurbani.

Who needs to offer Qurbani?

The Hanafi school states that any adult, sane Muslim who possesses the Nisab value must give a Qurbani. So if you are eligible to pay Zakat, you need to offer a Qurbani. 

The Maliki and Hanbali schools state that the person responsible for the household can make the Qurbani on their behalf. 

However, in many households today, it is not uncommon to have two or more people who pay Zakat. The best and safest option is for a Qurbani to be offered for each person eligible for giving Zakat.

When should I donate my Qurbani?

This year, Eid will most likely be on 16th or 17th June 2024. Your Qurbani must be given before this date to ensure that it is a valid sacrifice. On that note, we urge you not to delay in giving yours.

As Qurbanis in each location have a set quota, we suggest you give yours as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

How important is it to give my Qurbani?

Qurbani is an obligation on all Muslims who possess wealth above the Nisab value - so if you are eligible to pay Zakat, then you must give a Qurbani.

This annual sacrifice also carries the great meaning of representing the sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim (as) was prepared to make in honour of our Creator.

Can you give Qurbani for someone else?

Yes, it is permissible to give Qurbani on behalf of someone else. You can pay for your own Qurbani as well as members of your family, or anyone else. The Prophet (saw) would even give an extra Qurbani on behalf of his Ummah. 

What is a Prophetic Qurbani?

‘The Prophet (saw) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’. [Tabarani and Ahmad]

After fulfilling his personal obligation, the Prophet (saw) gave an additional Qurbani on behalf of the Muslims who could not afford to do so. We encourage all of our donors to revive this forgotten Sunnah and help more needy people.

Is Qurbani part of Zakat?

No, Qurbani is a separate ritual from Zakat. However, anyone who is eligible for Zakat (any adult, sane Muslim who possesses the Nisab value) must also give a Qurbani, in accordance with the Hanafi school.

When will my Qurbani be distributed?

We work hard to ensure that the meat from your Qurbani is distributed to those in need during the days of Eid al-Adha.
