لَن يَنَالَ اللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلَا دِمَاؤُهَا وَلَٰكِن يَنَالُهُ التَّقْوَىٰ مِنكُمْ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
“It is not their meat nor their blood, that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you, that ye may glorify Allah for His Guidance to you and proclaim the good news to all who do right”
(The Holy Qur’an, 22:37)
Each year, on Eid al-Adha, you make a conscious decision to extend a helping hand to those who are less fortunate. Inspired by the selflessness and devotion of Prophet Ibrahim (as), you willingly make sacrifices to uplift those in need.
In the present time, the demand for Qurbani (sacrificial offering) remains significant, as more than 2 billion individuals continue to face the harsh reality of insufficient access to safe food and water. Your sacrifice holds the power to impact the lives of up to ten families across the globe, providing them with sustenance and nourishment. Beyond the immediate benefits, your act of generosity holds the promise of boundless rewards in the hereafter.
By participating in Qurbani, you join a legacy of compassion, embodying the spirit of giving that defines the essence of Eid al-Adha. Your selflessness has the potential to alleviate suffering, instill hope, and foster a sense of unity among communities in need.
Let this year’s Qurbani be a testament to your unwavering commitment to those less privileged. Together, we can make a profound difference, forging a path towards a world where every individual has access to the necessities of life.
Last year, The Zahra Trust team slaughtered over 3,500 livestock for distributions, benefiting over 80,000 people.
This year again our team across the globe is ready to fulfil your sacrifice and deliver aid to those in need.
The Zahra Trust team conducts sacrifices locally to support farming industries and sources healthy cattle to ensure the highest quality meat is provided to struggling families; for most, this will be the only time of year they will have the luxury of eating meat.
Eid ul Adha is estimated to fall on 29th June 2023, depending on the sighting of the moon.
Qurbani means ‘sacrifice’-it is used to describe the holy sacrifice of livestock as an act of worship.
Qurbani is due after Eid prayer on the first day of Eid ul Adha until 13th Dhul Hijjah.
Qurbani is done to emulate the obedience of the Prophet Ibrahim (as) when he sacrificed a lamb in the place of his son Ismail (as) to please Allah (swt).
Qurbani is obligatory for those who undertake the journey of Hajj and carries immense rewards when performed by those who were unable to go.
At the Zahra Trust, we take orders through our site and over the phone; we arrange your Qurbani with our local teams who fulfil your Qurbani obligation in strict accordance with the Shariah.
