Once, our beloved Prophet (saw) was asked, “What is Qurbani?” The Prophet (saw) answered: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (swt).” Tirmidhi


Qurbani is the religious sacrifice of a goat, sheep, cow, ox, camel or water buffalo between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
It is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) and their story of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (swt).


Last year, Save an Orphan delivered more than 124,602 Qurbani meals ot the homes of widowed famlies in Asia and Africa. For many, it was the first meat they tasted in months. 

All Muslim adults who are eligible to pay Zakat must also perform Qurbani.
The tenth day of the month marks the start of Eid al-Adha and the Feast of the Sacrifice, when every strand of hair on the Qurbani delivers a reward from Allah (swt).
Dhul Hijjah itself is a very sacred month, when the largest annual gathering of people in the world takes place from the 8th-12th for the annual pilgrimage to Mecca and the Kaaba – itself built by Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as).
Whether you’re celebrating Eid with your loved ones or joining our pilgrim brothers on the sacred journey to Mecca, we pray that you will consider the poor and the needy this Eid.


Share Qurbani with the poor

This year, for the eighth year running, Save an Orphan will be working hard on behalf of our primary beneficiaries – widows and orphaned children – to distribute humanely-reared halal animals to the poor and destitute across Asia and Africa this Eid.
We reach out to some of the world’s most vulnerable families in some of the poorest regions, helping widowed mothers who are often unable to feed themselves or their children.
Without us, countless families would be unable to join the global Qurbani simply because they are too poor, and we feel it is our duty as a Muslim charity to include and embrace impoverished and needy families in the holy festivities of Eid al-Adha.
To continue our work this Qurbani, we need your help and your sacrifice. By donating just £25 you can ensure that a widowed family will receive 100% of the meat from a halal animal sacrificed according to the laws and customs of Dhabihah.
Every £25 looks after one widowed family; it feeds her children and includes her family in the Eid celebrations by giving them a holy feast to remember.
