Qurbani Guide

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani is an obligatory act whereby every year Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, a sheep, a cow or a camel during the month of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th and final month of the Islamic Calendar.

 

This is in order to reflect Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail for the sake of Allah.

Who is eligible for Qurbani?

Qurbani is mandatory for every Muslim who:

  • Are adults of sound mind
  • Possess more than 52.2 tolas of silver (1 tola = 11.7g of silver)
  • Are not travelling
  • Meet the nisab threshold for Zakat
When do you have to give Qurbani?

You should slaughter your animal anytime within the days of sacrifice –from the 10th of Dhul Hijjah till the sunset of the 12th of Dhul Hijjah.

Sacrifices can only be made after the Eid prayer (sacrifices made before do not count as Qurbani)

What animals can be sacrificed for Qurbani?

The Qurbani animal must be a goat, sheep, ram, or cattle (such as cow, bull, ox and buffalo), or a camel.

A small animal such as a sheep or goat counts as one Qurbani share, while larger animals like camels and cattle count as seven Qurbani shares each.

The goat or the sheep must be at least one year old and shouldn’t be blind, physically disabled, have broken horns or no teeth.

What are the benefits of Qurbani?

The act of Qurbani is a sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (as) and here are some of its benefits:

  • It pleases Allah (swt)
  • It’s an act of `ibadah (worship)
  • It’s a reminder of the sacrifice
  • It’s a sign of true faith
  • There is great reward and protection from miseries in the Hereafter
  • It’s an expression of gratitude to Allah for his infinite favours
Where does my Qurbani go?

Save an Orphan makes sure your Qurbani goes to some of the world’s poorest families across Asia and Africa. We conduct poverty assessments to target the most vulnerable and distribute meat packs at local centres.

Who does my Qurbani help?

Your Qurbani ensures that families who are extremely poor, living with food insecurity have access to a nutritious meal with meat. It allows families to have meat for the first time all year so they can enjoy their Eid.

Donate your Qurbani and fulfil your obligation

Follow in the footsteps of the Prophets and give to vulnerable orphan’s and their communities. Donate for Eid ul-Adha and sacrifice an animal for the love of Allah.

Benefits of Qurbani:

  • Shows our submission to Allah
  • Teaches us about sabr (patience)
  • Reminds us of Allah’s mercy
  • Gives a nutritious meal with meat to the poor
  • It’s an ibadah and encourages social unity
  • It strengthens the bond between you and Allah
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)."
