What is Qurbani?

Allah tells us in the Holy Qur’an:

“So turn in prayer towards your Lord and sacrifice.” (108:2)

Throughout our lives, each and every one of us makes sacrifices to help our friends, family and neighbours. By sacrificing what we have to help those in need, we offer crucial solidarity and hope. Right now, a staggering 1 in 9 people worldwide are battling chronic hunger. However, there is hope: by giving Qurbani, you can feed a family in need this Eid.

The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the most sacred days of the year, loved by Allah (SWT).

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said “for every hair of the Qurbani you will receive a reward from Allah, and for every strand of its wool you will receive a reward.”

Give your Qurbani through Islamic Relief, and reap the reward!

Qurbani with Islamic Relief

Since 1986 Islamic Relief has been caring for the needs of the world’s poorest people through the implementation of Qurbani on behalf of its generous supporters.

Having performed 670 Qurbanis in our initial year, in 2019 with your love and support, over 3 million vulnerable people across 34 countries such as Yemen, Syria, Gaza and Myanmar as well as impoverished communities right here in South Africa, received quality fresh Qurbani meat.

We make sure the most impoverished people receive the best Qurbani we can provide them. By selecting only the healthiest animals, we ensure high quality meat for those whose diets lack so much.


Sharing Qurbani with those who need it most

We provide Qurbani in remote, rural areas that some charities find hard to reach, where communities hardly ever receive support. It may cost us a little more, but we hope you’ll agree that it’s the most vulnerable people who need our help most.

We try to help the most vulnerable people first – women, children, the elderly, and refugees of war and disaster are always our priority.

Alhamdulillah, by fulfilling your Qurbani with Islamic Relief, you provide a critical source of protein to the most vulnerable families across the globe.

Here at Islamic Relief, we ensure that only the best quality meat is provided – all sacrificed according to Prophetic tradition. We don’t compromise on quality and we deal with local suppliers to help local economies flourish.

So as we remember the struggle and dedication of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice for the sake of Allah, make your sacrifice with Islamic Relief and support a family in need.
