Last year we reached over 3 million people in 35 different countries, this year help us reach more.
When you do your Qurbani with Islamic Relief, we make sure that the most vulnerable families are prioritised to receive the best quality meat.
Our teams work hard to get your donation to the most remote areas locally, and conflict zones, including Palestine, Syria and Yemen.
For many, this is the only time they will be able to eat meat in the entire year.
How does it work?
Your Qurbani price includes all the costs. Livestock are pre-allocated and paid for, and must be hygienically and ethically treated. They are then sacrificed during the 10th – 13th days of Dhul Hijjah.
The meat is distributed fresh, chilled or frozen, according to what is appropriate for the dietary culture of the region. Each packet is 2-5 kilograms of meat and feeds a family of 4-8 people.
Because of you, our global Qurbani efforts meant that over 3 million people in over 30 countries felt the joy of Eid last year.
Everyone deserves to enjoy Eid and feed their families just like we do.
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.In 2022, Qurbani distributions will aim to reach more people than ever before.
After the animal has been sacrificed, its meat is then distributed to those most in need. You can also find out more about how Islamic Relief distributes Qurbani meat in the frequently asked questions below.
Donating Qurbani is highly recommended according to the majority of scholars and obligatory in the Hanafi madhab for every Muslim who is financially able to do so.
There are also Qurbani rules which dictate which animals can be sacrificed, the quality of the life it has led, its health status and guidelines on how the sacrifice must be carried out.
By donating your Qurbani to Islamic Relief, you will enable the world’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in over 35 countries to enjoy Eid, as this is the only time many families eat meat in the entire year.
