Your can rest assured that your Qurbani is in good hands.
Our Human Appeal family has over 29 years experience in delivering aid. Last year we distributed fresh, nutritious meat to over 240,000 needy people around the world.
We make sure that we source fresh meat from local farmers with healthy, well - taken care of animals.
We invest in quality meat which we deliver to the most vulnerable people in communities around the world.
This Dhul Hijjah, given the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, the uncertainty of what tomorrow brings is what makes giving this Qurbani, a true sacrifice in the footsteps of Ibrahim (AS).
A true sign of our obedience to Allah (SWT) who continues to test us in order to strengthen our faith and remind us how strong we are.
The word Qurbani is from the Arabic word 'Qurban' which refers to an act performed to seek God's pleasure. The festival of Qurbani is also known as Udh-hiya which is an Arabic word too meaning 'blood sacrifice'.
Every year, muslims around the world offer Qurbani by sacrificing an animal during the month of Dhul Hijjah. This is a celebration and an act of worship. Thousands of years ago, Ibrahim (AS) was ordered by Allah (SWT) in a dream to sacrifice his one and only son, Ismail. (Ibrahim (AS), accepted the command of Allah (SWT) and told his son Ismail. Ismail(AS) did not hesitate to accept the will of Allah. A true demonstration of courage, obedience and love for Allah (SWT).
At the last minute, when Ibrahim was about to slaughter his son, Allah (SWT) sent him a lamb and ordered him to spare his son and slaughter the lamb instead. Allah (SWT) was testing him, and Ibrahim (AS) passed the test with patience, perserverance and faith. He was ready to sacrifice his only child to please the Almighty Allah (SWT). That is obedience.
This legacy of sacrifice and obedience was taught to us by our beloved prophet Muhammad (PBUH) when he also sacrificed an animal in the month of Dhul Hijja. Qurbani is an important act of worship from the sunnah of Ibrahim (AS) and Muhammad (PBUH).
Every sane adult who has more than their basic needs and can afford to pay Qurbani, must pay by sacrificing an animal. If you are eligible to pay Zakat, you must also give Qurbani.
This year, as we adjust to the challenges of the coronavirus epidemic, we can't help but resonate with this legacy of sacrifice. The Covid-19 pandemic has taken lives, jobs and our freedom to live as we like.
We have been forced to sacrifice a lot; but this has allowed us to stop and reflect on our own legacy, our own acts of worship, our perseverance, our patience and our faith.
Share the joy of Eid Ul Adha
About 820 million people go to bed hungry every night! Food insecurity is a real issue around the world. As we prepare to celebrate eid, it is best to pay our Qurbani on time to ensure that those who need it the most, have something to eat and a reason to smile on this beautiful occasion.
As this festival reminds us of the legacy of Ibrahim (AS), let's think of our own impact in this world and the legacy we want to leave behind. Charity not only makes life better for a needy, vulnerable person but it also secures our place in jannah, in the hereafter.
While you share your blessings and give hope to the poor, Allah (SWT) increases your blessings and opens the doors of jannah to you.
May Allah continue to bless those who alleviate the suffering of those in need.
Give your Qurbani today. Share your blessings. Build your legacy.
