Eid-ul-Adha (‘festival of Sacrifice’), is the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar. The festival remembers prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son when Allah ordered him to. Moreover,Eid ul Adha marks, the completion of the annual Hajj and Muslims around the world will celebrate and honour this tradition by sacrificing an animal and distributing the meat to those in need.
Today Muslims all over the world, who can afford it, sacrifice a sheep (sometimes a goat) or even a cow as a reminder of prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah.
For many years your Eid ul Adha (Qurbani) donation has allowed ISRA-UK to distribute fresh meat to thousands of families across the world, bringing some happiness to those suffering poverty.
Your Qurbani gift means everything to a poor family on Eid morning.
We can perform Eid-ul-Adha on your behalf in several countries around the world.
When the companions asked the Prophet peace be upon him “what is Qurbani? ” He replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim peace be upon him.”They then questioned: “what are the benefits that we get from Qurbani?” The Prophet peace be upon him replied: “A reward for every hair of the animal that you are sacrificing.
“There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.” (Tirmizi, Ibne Majah)
In 2017 your qurban helped spread happiness by providing poor communities around the world where ISRA-UK is currently implementing poverty alleviation programs with meat. So the poor within these communities also enjoy the event of Eid-ul-Adha.
We performed Qurbani on your behalf within communities of Uganda, Somaliland, Sindh, Azad Kashmir, Kenya, Karachi Pakistan, Swat, Yemen and Gaza. All your sacrifices were performed on the day of Eid ul Adha in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and distributed immediately to the poorest and most needy.
IT IS NEITHER THEIR MEAT NOR THEIR BLOOD THAT REACHES ALLAH, BUT IT IS PIETY FROM YOU THAT REACHES HIM.
