Qurbani: Sacrificing Animals and Sharing Meat with the Needy
Qurbani requires the sacrifice of an animal, such as a goat, sheep, cow or camel, during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah. After the animal is sacrificed, its meat is distributed to those in need. Islamic Aid ensures that Qurbani meat is distributed in a fair and equitable manner to vulnerable communities in over 30 countries, allowing them to enjoy Eid and have access to meat, which may be a rare luxury for them.
Islamic Aid also follows strict rules regarding which animals can be sacrificed, their quality of life, health status, and the correct way of carrying out the sacrifice. By donating your Qurbani to Islamic Aid, you can ensure that it is carried out in accordance with Islamic principles, and that it helps those who are most in need.
