What is Qurbani?

Qurbani means sacrifice. Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God.
Reap the rewards of the 10 best days.
Give your Qurbani today.

Qurbani Donation

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 (the 10 best days) are the most sacred days of the year, loved by Allah (SWT). Therefore, by giving to Islamic Relief, you can reap the rewards of this blessed month. As Allah tells us in the Holy Qur’an:


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

Who is eligible for Qurbani?

Islamic Relief has a set criteria and scoring systems in place to determine Qurbani recipients. The scoring system is based on the following criteria:

  • Families who live on less than the minimum income for that particular country
  • Female-headed households
  • Families with disabled and/or elderly persons
  • Children under five years old
  • Pregnant women
  • Breastfeeding mothers
  • Families with little or no access to the market

A thorough assessment is carried out by our teams to objectively identify the weighting and priority of each of the above criteria. These are then applied when selecting recipient families to ensure we reach the most vulnerable without bias.

Qurbani to over three million people

Last year alone, your donations enabled us to provide quality meat to over 3 million vulnerable people across 34 countries such as Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Syria, as well as impoverished communities right here in the UK.

Alhamdulillah, your donations provided a critical source of protein to vulnerable families and individuals across the globe.

Here at Islamic Relief, we ensure that only the best quality meat is used – 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.
