Eid ul-Adha is more commonly referred to as the Festival of Sacrifice. We explore more below.
The Spirit of Sacrifice
During Eid ul-Adha, Muslims offer sacrifices of animals to commemorate the sacrifice of Ibrahim himself, and the spirit of charity is essential and of central importance to the Islamic faith. In more modern times, it is now also accepted for Muslims in many parts of the world to offer money as a sacrifice to help people who live in extreme poverty.
All over the world, vulnerable families are seriously struggling to even put food on their table and feed their children, and your Qurbani will bring hope and joy to these struggling families this Eid ul-Adha.
Since Qurbani is one of the purest forms of Islamic worship and one of the most beloved to Allah during the days of Tashreek, it is incredibly important and wholly crucial to ensure that you offer the best possible offering. You must ensure you select a relief charity that adopts the highest standards and levels of quality in the animal selection, including the health of the animal, the weight of the animal, and the age of the animal.
When participating in Qurbani, it is absolutely vital that you follow the Qurbani meat distribution regulations and rules. These include, but are not restricted to:
- Animals to be sacrificed must meet the health and age requirements
- Every single (able) Muslim must give Qurbani, especially those Muslims who have passed the ages of puberty and have their own source of monetary income
- Sacrifices made before the Eid prayer do not count towards Qurbani, so the Eid prayer must always be carried out first
- Qurbani must always be given on the tenth, eleventh and twelfth day of Dhul-Hijah
- Every single Qurbani sacrifice must be given in a total of three shares. One share for you, one share for your family, and one share for an impoverished family suffering from poverty
Making Your Donation Count
Fulfill your Qurbani obligations, bring hope to less fortunate people and donate Qurbani, ensure you are able to respect your duty as a Muslim and guarantee your Qurbani reaches those who need it the most and on time.
Reputable, experienced, and professional relief donors working on behalf of the Islamic religion help carry out, perform and complete Qurbani on behalf of its donors in countries and areas of the world where the people are suffering due to social and/or economic deprivation. Such relief charities distribute the meat to the poor and impoverished, and in a lot of cases, this will be the only time of the year where such families receive fresh meat.
