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)
Today, one in nine people will go to bed hungry tonight – that’s 795 million people without enough food to eat.
When you entrust us with your sacrifice, you’re not just getting a charity that delivers aid; you’re getting a responsible guardian, with 28 years of Qurbani experience, who understands the importance of this blessed act.
That’s why we source from local farmers, we inspect the animals to make sure they are cared for accordance with Islamic principles, and ensure that those who receive the meat are the most vulnerable families.
What difference can one person make?
Qurbani is a responsibility on all adult Muslims. That’s why the reward for this act of kindness is so huge. When you give your Qurbani– from just £26 – you’ll be providing two kilos of high-quality, nutritional meat to each vulnerable family, helping to bring joy to up to 28 people; many of whom will only get the chance to eat meat once a year.
Human Appeal is performing the blessed sacrifice of Qurbani after Eid prayer until the fourth day of Eid al-Adha. But, given the diversity of opinion on whether Qurbani on the fourth day of Eid is valid, we strive to complete all sacrifices by the third day.
The earlier you make your donation, the more likely we are to be able to fulfil your Qurbani; we’ve purchased animals ahead of time to make sure we’re ready to perform your donation as swiftly as possible after receiving your donation.
If your donation is late and we aren’t able to carry out your sacrifice within the four days of Eid, your charity will still be performed, but it will count as Sadaqah.
Reap the blessings of Dhul Hijjah
“There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Bukhari)
Our Qurbani guide answers all your questions about the sacrifice, so that you can focus on what really matters this Dhul Hijjah.
Mohammad lives in Thatta in the Sindh province of Pakistan with his wife, son and brother. “My wife has mental health issues, my brother had a car accident and is bed-ridden and my son has hepatitis.”
He relies on the generosity of his community in order to feed his family.
“Even though I have three family members, I am all alone. There is nobody to share this burden with and all that I have is from God.”
Your donations helped Mohammad and his family, providing them with a meat parcel to take the burden off Mohammad for a while.
But more is still needed. Help vulnerable people like Mohammad this year by providing Qurbani for as little as £26.
“I pray one day we’ll be free from this poverty. One day I will be free.”
This Eid al-Adha, let’s share the burden. Let’s not leave anyone to feel alone. Follow in the footsteps of the prophets this Dhul Hijjah and give your Qurbani today.
