When the Messenger (PBUH) was asked what Qurbani is, he answered, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim. For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
Please note that as the blessed days of Eid al-Adha have concluded, your Qurbani donation will now be treated as a Sadaqah (voluntary charity). While it may not fulfill the specific obligation of Qurbani, your generous contribution will still support our ongoing humanitarian efforts and provide much needed food assistance to those in need. Thanks to your donations, millions of people struggling with poverty around the world, including right here in the UK, will have the opportunity to enjoy nourishing meals and celebrate the festivities with dignity.
More people are going hungry than ever before. This Dhul Hijjah, 345 million people don’t know where their next meal will come from – that’s twice as many as last year.
With skyrocketing food prices across the world, families from the ummah face war, displacement, disease and climate change. This Dhul Hijjah, they will struggle to survive, and struggle to afford food.
Your Qurbani is more vital than ever, a true lifeline to those struggling for every single meal, offering hundreds of thousands of blessings to each person who gives.
Limited Qurbani opportunities left! Ensure your Qurbani is counted among the blessed ones. Act now and give your Qurbani before it's gone.
So many in our ummah are being tested like never before.
We have seen millions of our brothers and sisters across the world affected by conflict, climate change and natural disasters in just the last year. Global food shortages and inflation have pushed many families to the brink of starvation.
Give mercy this Dhul Hijjah, by providing nutritious Qurbani meat, allowing them to celebrate Eid.
Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. (Quran 22:37)
This Eid al-Adha, share the blessings of Eid with the ummah by performing a Qurbani sacrifice - an act of worship, charity and kindness, from just £26. Spread joy and hope this Eid al-Adha.
We’re working in 23 countries around the world, supporting communities facing war, displacement, climate disasters, and marginalisation. In every country, your Qurbani will help families living below the poverty line, those who can’t afford food, and families that are headed by women or contain young children, orphans, disabled or older people, and pregnant or nursing mothers.
For many, the Qurbani sacrifice is considered a duty for all adult Muslims who qualify for Zakat, but it’s certainly encouraged for all who are able to give, with every single hair on the sacrificed animal providing blessings to those who give.
Same quality Qurbani, affordable options
Despite rising costs, we know times are tough, so we’ve committed to maintaining the cost of our most affordable Qurbani at just £26 - we’re absorbing rising running costs so that we can keep providing the same value-for-money.
We’ve not changed the cost, or the quality! It’s still our same best quality, fresh, nutritious Qurbani from well cared-for animals, all sacrificed according to Prophetic tradition, ensuring the best quality meat is used which we deliver to the most vulnerable communities. We have over 30 years’ experience fulfilling this Sunnah, ensuring your sacrifices are done on time between the first and fourth days of Eid al Adha.
We recommend arranging your Qurbani as early as possible to ensure there’s plenty of time to carry out your sacrifice on the days of Eid.
If you can’t afford to give a full Qurbani donation, you can still reap the blessings of Qurbani and Dhul Hijjah by donating any amount to our Qurbani Fund, which we’ll pool with other donations to ensure that you still contribute to the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha. Please note this does not count as your own Qurbani donation, but is a wonderful sadaqah.
Give whatever you can, and reap the rewards of these blessed 10 days.
Human Appeal makes the most of your mercy.
“There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Bukhari)
Each year, the blessed month of Dhul Hijjah reminds us of the love, obedience, and sacrifice of our prophets.
After a lifetime of longing for a child, Ibrahim (AS) was asked to sacrifice his beloved son Ismail, for the sake of Allah. But Allah spared Ismail at the last minute, and a ram was sacrificed in his place.
Muhammad (PBUH) sacrificed his needs for the good of the ummah, and cemented Ibrahim’s legacy by sacrificing an animal during Dhul-Hijjah.
Give a second Qurbani for the ummah or the deceased
Did you know, that each Eid, the Messenger (PBUH) sacrificed a second animal which he dedicated to those in the ummah who couldn’t afford to give? This act of mercy allowed his community to share in the blessings of Eid.
“The Prophet (PBUH) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood”. (Ahmad)
Revive the Sunnah of the Messenger (PBUH) this Eid al-Adha. Dedicate a second Qurbani on behalf of those in the ummah who can’t afford to in your chosen country. By giving a Prophetic Qurbani, you unlock double the rewards for your merciful act, so make sure to get yours in on time!
You can also give a second Qurbani on behalf of those you have lost and who are unable to perform their Qurbani this year – a beautiful way to commemorate and remember them.
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.
As the beautiful month of Dhul Hijjah approaches, continue the legacy of the prophets, and support the ummah with your Qurbani.
Human Appeal makes the most of your mercy.

Every year our team in the field endeavours to ensure your Qurbani is delivered to the country of your choice. However, in case it is not possible in the country of your choice due to factors beyond our control, we will ensure it is delivered to those who need it most in the next nearest country possible.
Human Appeal is committed to providing aid in the country or programme that you select. In the event we complete the programme, exceed the required funds, or are denied access to a particular country for reasons beyond our control, Human Appeal reserves the right to reallocate your donation to another programme where it is needed most.
