The Blessings of Dhul-Hijjah

“No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijjah).” [Tirmidhi]

The Global Hunger Crisis

The global hunger emergency is the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945. Ethiopia, Somalia, Yemen, Nigeria, and South Sudan are already experiencing emergency levels of food insecurity and currently battling the East Africa famine. Every day too many men and women across the globe struggle to feed their children a nutritious meal. In a world where we produce enough food to feed everyone, 800 million people or one in nine still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. Eradicating hunger and malnutrition is one of the great challenges of our time. People suffering from chronic hunger are plagued with recurring illnesses, developmental disabilities and low productivity.

Hunger is a perilous cycle: Families who struggle with chronic hunger prevents them from being able to work, go to school, or improve their lives. Every day, Muslim Global Relief and its partners work to bring us closer to a zero hunger world. With our humanitarian food assistance programmes, we provide nutritious food to those in urgent need across crisis & conflict hit countries. Meanwhile our complementary programmes address the root causes of hunger, building the resilience of communities, empowering them with the tools to lift themselves out of poverty, distributing food aid to victims of war and famine, providing communities with the education they need to feed themselves over the long-term.

Qurbani: FAQS

Qurbani, or Udhiyah as it is known in Arabic, is the word that describes the sacrifice of an animal during the period of Eid ul Adha for the pleasure of Allah (swt). The qurbani takes place on Eid Ul Adha, which marks the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage We celebrate by honouring the tradition of the Prophet Ibrahim (Alahi Salaam) by sacrificing an animal and distributing the meat to those in need.

Qurbani should be performed by adults of sane mind who are financially sound, able to afford it and have the means to do so. The Hanafi ulema say it is wajib (obligatory) to perform Qurbani whilst the other schools of jurisprudence say it is sunnah. Ourbani is given purely for the pleasure of Allah swt and there is great blessings in doing so.

The animals to be slaughtered at Qurbani usually are goats, sheep, cattle (cows or bulls), buffalo or camels. Under the rules of Qurbani, the animals can be male or female, but should be in good health, free from any handicap, illness, disease and above a certain age. Goats and sheep must be at least one years old, while cattle must be two years, and camels five years. Muslim Global Relief ensure that all animals chosen for Qurbani meet this strict criteria and are treated really well.

All Qurbani animals have shares. One qurbani or sacrifice is required by each person and different animals have varying shares. Small livestock such as sheep and goats have one share each, so one sheep would equal one qurbani. Larger animals such as camels and cattle each have seven shares. These large animals can be divided into seven parts, so for a single person, Qurbani is fulfilled with one share of the large animal eg. one seventh of a camel or cow.

1 small animal (Sheep or Goat) = 1 Qurbani
1 large animal (Cattle) = 7 Qurbanis

You can make as many Qurbanis as you want – for example two or three shares in a cow – and on behalf of as many individuals as you like, including those who have passed away.

Yes Qurbani can be given on behalf of friends, family, loved ones and those who have passed away. 

Qurbani can be performed from the 10th day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah until the sun sets on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah. The best time is to perform the act of Qurbani is immediately after the completion of the Eid-ul-Adha prayers. Muslim Global Relief ensures your qurbani is completed on time and in the correct Islamic manner.

According to Islamic teaching the meat from Qurbani should be divided into three equal parts, one part for the family, one part for relatives / friends and one part for the poor and needy. The meat from Qurbani can be distributed to the poor or rich, Muslim or non-Muslim. Muslim Global Relief have been performing qurbani for over 20 years and offer Qurbani in countries where there is extreme poverty. We distribute meat to the most neediest and destitute.

Eid ul Adha (the Festival of Sacrifice) is the three-day festival that marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage and Qurbani is offered for the pleasure of Allah swt and to commemorate the sacrifice the Prophet Ibrahim (alaihis salaam), who was willing to perform Qurbani of his own son Ismail (alaihis salaam) for Allah, who spared his son by sending down a ram to take his place.
Eid ul Adha is a public holiday in Muslim countries and a time for Muslims to thank Allah for the blessings they have received, and to celebrate with their families, friends and relatives. It is also a time to remember the less fortunate and well-off through the act of Qurbani, donations and gifts, so they can also celebrate the occasion.
