DONATE YOUR QURBANI

WHY GIVE QURBANI?

Every year during the month of Dhul Hijjah, we look to the story of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS), who was ready to sacrifice what was most dear to him upon Allah’s command. As he had the strength and faith to give up his son, Allah responded through a great portrayal of mercy. 

Your Qurbani is the greatest strength for families worldwide, ensuring that they can enjoy a nutritious meal and share in the festivities in an otherwise difficult and severe circumstances. The meat from your Qurbani will be distributed to those most in need, nourishing them during the days of Eid al-Adha and beyond, and bringing them joy and comfort in difficult times. 

For displaced families across the world, meat is a luxury.

900 million people globally need food and cannot afford the basics. But through your Qurbani charity, we ensure that families can share in a delicious meal and celebrate the joy of Eid.

For over 13 years, we’ve been on the ground delivering Qurbani in Syria and surrounding countries.

This year, we are delivering Qurbani donations in Asia (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Iraq), Africa (Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan), Palestine, Yemen, the UK and Syria/Syrian refugees. 

In this sacred month of Dhul Hijjah, share your blessings with those in need by giving your Qurbani.

Please note: In the rare event of a country quota being filled, we may divert your donations to other locations. If no sheep/goats are available, a share of a cow will be used.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.
