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)
Every year, on Eid al Adha, you make the choice to provide for those in need.
Learning from the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (as), you also make a sacrifice to support those who are less well off.
This year, the need for Qurbani is as high as ever, with over 2 billion people not having sufficient access to safe food and water. Your sacrifice can support up to ten families in this world and provide infinite rewards in the hereafter.
One Sacrifice, Infinite Rewards
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 10th July, 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.
