Qurbani 2020 / 1441 أضحية

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.

The Prophet SAW said:
“It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim. For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah.”
(Al-Tirmidhi)

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 FAQs

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the Qurbani / Udhiyah:

What is Qurbani?

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.

Who should give Qurbani?

All Muslim adults who are sane and eligible to pay Zakat must make the sacrifice.

Why do we sacrifice an animal during Qurbani?

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.

Where can I carry out my Qurbani?

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.

Will I get a receipt or feedback?

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.

Can I pay for Qurbani with my Zakat or sadaqah?

No, Qurbani is a separate obligation upon all Sane Muslim adults who are also eligible to pay zakat.

When is the deadline for giving Qurbani?

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.

Can a Qurbani be made on behalf of another person?

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.

Who receives the Qurbani meat?

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.

Where is Drop of compassion performing Qurbani’s?

For 2020 we will be conducting Qubani’s in, Yemen, West Bengal, Bangladesh, Rohingya Refugees (based in Bangladesh), Malawi.

How can I be sure they have been conducted in accordance to Sharia and distributed fairly to the poor?

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.

Which animals can be sacrificed?

Qurbani animals must be a goat, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, water buffalo) or camel.

Why do your prices vary so much from country to country?

Different countries have different prices for livestock, therefore that is reflected.

Is the meat distributed fresh or cooked?

Drop of Compassion provides fresh meat to beneficiaries. We do not provide canned or cooked meat, due to the costs involved.

Do I need to give you my name or the name of the person I am doing the qurbani for?
