Our Ummah is being tested like never before. We have seen millions of our brothers and sisters across the world affected by conflict, climate change and natural disasters in the last year alone. Global food shortages and inflation are pushing many families to the brink of starvation and famine and child malnutrition is a growing problem in emergency zones like Somalia, Yemen and Afghanistan.

Your Qurbani will bring hope to our suffering brothers and sisters, ensuring they have nutritious food on blessed Eid.

Qurbani : The Greatest Sacrifice

It's time to give Qurbani!

ܰQurbaniis the greatest sacrifice – a weighty promise that everything we own is for Allah and that we submit to him entirely.

As Eid approaches, we get ready to follow in the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (as), who was ready to sacrifice what was most dear to him upon Allah’s command. This year, you really are making the greatest sacrifice that will have the greatest impact on the Ummah.

You can also donate a UK Qurbani and have two thirds of the meat delivered to your door, while the other thirds feeds the most vulnerable here in the UK through our Open Kitchen initiative.

‘Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you.’ [The Noble Qur’an, 22:37]

When you donate a Qurbani with ļֱ, the meat will be distributed to those most in need, nourishing them during the days of Eid al-Adha and beyond, and bringing them joy in these hard times. Meanwhile, the essence of your offering will reach Allah – so we urge you to give a sacrifice truly worthy of this status, according to your means.

We also urge you to follow the Prophet’s practice of giving an additional Qurbani on behalf of the the Muslims who can not afford to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is Qurbani Compulsory and how many Qurbani per family?

According to the Hanafi school, Qurbani is an obligation on all Muslims who possess wealth above the Nisab value - so if you are eligible to pay Zakat, then you must give a Qurbani.

The Maliki and Hanbali schools state that the person responsible for the household can make the Qurbani on their behalf.

However, it is not uncommon to have two or more people per household who pay Zakat. The best and safest option is for a Qurbani to be offered for each Zakat-eligible person.

Q. How much is a Qurbani?

One Qurbani is either a small animal, such as a goat, or a share in a larger animal, like a cow. Neither is more rewardable i.e. both fulfil your obligation.

One Qurbani in the UK costs £350. Two thirds of the meat will be delivered directly to your home, and the other third will be used by our Open Kitchens in London and Nottingham to feed vulnerable Muslim families in the UK.

The price of each animal will vary country to country. For more prices, see our list of locations above.
