Follow in the footsteps of the Prophets this Hajj Season, and donate your Qurbani to the amazing people of Yemen.

It Is Qurbani Season

With a few weeks until Eid Ul Adha, a holiday that signifies the end of our pilgrimage to Makkah, it’s time to consider Qurbani. This year has been full of ups and downs and due to Covid-19 many of us will not be able to engage in the rituals of hajj.  Qurbani is a great way to share our blessings and maintain the traditions of this season. We can gain extra rewards with our sacrifice and share the happiness of Eid with those in need.

 What is Qurbani?

Qurbani literally means sacrifice. During the month of Dhul-Hijjah Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) obedience and readiness to sacrifice his son Ismail (AS), for the sake of Allah. Due to this tradition, Qurbani is obligatory for every Muslim who has reached the age of puberty, and who can afford it. If you are eligible to pay Zakat then you must pay Qurbani. 

 

 

 

Why Yemen?

Despite years of war, famine and disease our brothers and sisters in Yemen have to also grapple with the coronavirus pandemic. This means that the country is currently facing the threat of extinction with a significant number of its population dying from starvation and malnutrition. Paying your Qurbani to Yemen could literally save a life.

 

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”Bukhari and Muslim
