During Eid ul Adha (Eid Qurbani) Muslims around the world will gather to sacrifice livestock in line with the timeless practice that dates back to the father of the Prophets Ibrahim (as).
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.
For over 31 years, Qurbani donations from considerate public have allowed ISRA-UK to distribute fresh meat to thousands of families across the world; allowing some of the poorest families to also enjoy the blessed day of Eid ul Adha.
Qurbani teaches us obedience, devotion and promotes the idea of helping other Muslim brothers and sisters. Therefore, it serves as a means to look out for the poor and the needy.
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.
* If a sheep or goat is not available, then one share of a cow will be used.
