Drop of Compassion is giving you the opportunity to offer your Qurbani (Udhiyah) in 5 areas this year.
Qurbani (Udhiyah) is the annual sacrifice of livestock animals during the days of Eid-al-Adha. It serves as a reminder of the sacrifice Prophet Ibrahim(as) and Prophet Ismail (as) were willing to take to affirm their devotion to Allah.
You can honour this tradition and distribute the meat amongst the poor and needy around the world.
QURBANI (UDHIYAH) IS NOW CLOSED
For further information please contact us.
If you still wish to carry out your Qurbani and you have missed the deadline, then please contact us to see if something can be arranged.
Qurbani is the act of offering a sacrifice on Eid Al-Adha. It commemorates the supreme sacrifice offered by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to show his total submission and gratitude towards Allah (SWT). It is also one of the compulsory acts of Hajj.
All Muslim adults who are sane and eligible to pay Zakat must make the sacrifice.
The Holy Qur’an informs us that in a vision, Prophet Ibrahim (AS) saw that he offered his son Isma’eel (AS) in sacrifice to Allah (SWT). When he shared this vision with his son, Isma’eel (AS) said: “O my father! Do as you are commanded: you will find me, if Allah so wills, of the patient ones.’’ However, when Prophet Ibrahim (AS) carried out the commandment, Allah (SWT) replaced Isma’eel (AS) with a ram.
In developed countries, it is sometimes difficult to perform your own Qurbani. Therefore, it is permitted to arrange for Qurbani in a different country on one’s behalf. In this case, Drop Of Compassion will ensure the whole Qurbani is distributed among the poor and most vulnerable.
Drop of Compassion will send you a receipt to confirm your Qurbani but we are unable to provide notification when individual Qurbanis have been completed.
No, Qurbani is a separate obligation upon all Sane Muslim adults who are also eligible to pay zakat.
For all of the counties the deadline is 26/07/2020, however if you have missed this date, do still get in touch and we will try to help.
You may give Qurbani on behalf of someone else, including a deceased Muslim. You can also give Qurbani in the name of The Prophet (SAW) or his family members. However, this must be done in addition to your own Qurbani.
Qurbani meat benefits poor and needy families, allowing them to share the celebration of Eid with us. The fresh Qurbani meat will be handed out so that families can make a hot, nutritious meal for Eid.
For 2020 we will be conducting Qubani’s in, Yemen, West Bengal, Bangladesh, Rohingya Refugees (based in Bangladesh), Malawi.
Drop of Compassion work with international partners who have existing relationships with us already for other projects we carry in those countries, we also have a strict vetting process and request media footage with written feedback for any projects we carry out with our partners abroad.
Qurbani animals must be a goat, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, water buffalo) or camel.
Different countries have different prices for livestock, therefore that is reflected.
Drop of Compassion provides fresh meat to beneficiaries. We do not provide canned or cooked meat, due to the costs involved.
No, this is not necessary as long as you have made the intention that you are giving this Qurbani on behalf of a certain person.
