Once again, in 2018, we will be going the extra mile to support thousands of needy families to distribute your Qurbani donation. These Qurbanis will be delivered to Bhera city and many other surrounding areas. We choose these areas because people are experiencing severe levels of poverty because of the regular flooding which impacts the annual harvest.
- Only purchase local animals which benefit the local farmers and their families.
- Ensure that all of the animals brought are well cared for prior to Eid to keep them in good condition.
- Distribute Qurbani meat amongst the most needy people in the communities including poor families, orphans and widow.
- Ensure that your Qurbani is taken place according to Sunnah. Our Hafiz will recite relevant prayers and call your name per donation.
The meaning of the word Qurbani is sacrifice and can be traced back to the Prophet Ibrahim who dreamt that God had ordered him to sacrifice his only son Ismail. Ibrahim agreed to perform the sacrifice to show is devotion to God but God intervened and sent a ram in Ismail’s place. Ibrahim’s son was spared because Ibrahim showed that he would sacrifice Ismail despite the pain it would cause him.
Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah Muslims around the world slaughter an animal as a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to God. The meat is then distributed equally between the poor, the rest of the family and neighbours.
Eid-al-Adha is the Festival of Sacrifice and is celebrated during the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, Dhul Hijjah. This is the month when pilgrims travel to Mecca to perform Hajj and visit the Kaaba. Hajj is performed on the 8th, 9th and 10th days of the lunar month and Eid ul-Adha begins on the 10th and lasts for 3 days. The Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle and so the dates for Eid and other events change every year.
