There are millions of people in the world who are severely malnourished and don’t get to eat meat as part of their daily diets.
Most sleep hungry every night and wake every morning with no hope of a brighter day ahead.
If they live to see old age, their kids are born into the same cycle of poverty and disadvantage.
Not every person is as fortunate as we are.
Your Questions Answered
What is Qurbani?
The Prophet (saw) was once asked: “What is Qurbani?”
The Prophet (saw) replied: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as).
For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward
from Allah (swt).” [Tirmidhi]
Which animals can be sacrificed?
Qurbani animals must be a goat, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, water buffalo) or camel.
Where is Penny Appeal performing Qurbanis?
We perform Qurbanis in several countries across Africa and Asia and the Middle East.
We do fresh meat distribution in Ethiopia and India where we offer the qurbani on the days of Eid and distribute the meat to local needy communities there.
Some of the meat will be preserved and packaged with a shelf life of over 1 year, so we can continue to feed vulnerable people throughout the year.
What are the days and times for Qurbani?
The days of Qurbani are the 10th, 11th and 12th of Dhul Hijjah. The first day is better than the second, and the second better than the last.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: “The first thing that we do on the day of Eid is to perform the prayers. Then we go home and carry out our Qurbani. Thus whoever does those acts has conformed to our Sunnah. And for those who slaughtered before it, then the meat is for the family members and not as an act of Qurbani.” [Bukhari]
You can order your Qurbani with Penny Appeal at any time before Eid, which is permissible, and we’ll ensure the sacrifice is carried out on the right day.
Who receives the Qurbani meat?
All the fresh, succulent Qurbani meat benefits local poor and needy families, allowing them to share the celebration of Eid with us. The Qurbani meat may be handed out so that families can make a hot, nutritious meal for Eid, or our teams may organise community meals where we prepare and cook hot, nutritious meals for needy people in the area.
Some of the meat will be preserved and packaged with a shelf life of over 1 year, so we can continue to feed vulnerable people throughout the year, including during the winter months.
Can a Qurbani be made on behalf of another person?
Absolutely! You may give Qurbani on behalf of someone else, including a deceased Muslim. You can also give Qurbani in the name of The Prophet (saw) or his family members. However, this must be done in addition to your own Qurbani.
What is the deadline for giving Qurbani?
We can take Qurbani donations before and during all three days of Eid.
