- What is Qurbani?
Qurbani (or udhiya in Arabic) is the act of sacrificing a livestock animal. It takes place after Eid-Ul-Adha prayers, marking the conclusion of Hajj. Millions of Muslims around the world honour the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim AS by sacrificing an animal and then distributing the meat to family, neighbours and the poor.
These ten days include Yawm Arafah , on which Allah perfected His Religion. Fasting on this day will expiate for the sins of two years. These days also include Yawm al-Nahar (the Day of Sacrifice), the greatest day of the entire year and the greatest day of Hajj, which combines acts of worship in a way unlike any other day.
- Why donate it ?
MHUK plans to continue the success of the Qurbani programme and reach yet more people, with a particular focus in Bangladesh/Rohingya/East Africa. Over the past few years people have endured great difficulty as a result of the war. With more than 7.2 million people displaced within few countries, and more than half the population in urgent need of humanitarian assistance as the situation in some countries are devastating. The thought of a hearty meal has become a distant memory to most peoples as they struggle to find enough food to survive.
By donating your Qurbani to the people of poor countries, you will not only be fulfilling an Islamic obligation, but you will also be helping people who are in need of assistance the most.
