Donate Your Udhiya/Qurbani Today
“Neither their meat nor their blood will reach Allah,
but what reaches Him is piety from you.”
- The Holy Quran (22:37)
One of the most blessed times of the year is upon us as we prepare for a special celebration of Allah’s (swt) mercy. In reflecting on the struggles that Ibrahim (as) and his wife, Hajar (ra), had endured, we recognize that there are many people out there even today who are in need of the basic necessities of daily life. Through this understanding, we find inspiration to carry the example of our beloved Prophet (pbuh) within our celebrations and give generously to our sisters and brothers in need.
Performing the Udhiya/Qurbani can best be described as a form of complete submission to Allah (swt). And one way to worship Allah (swt) and to be of service to His people during this season is by donating our Udhiya/Qurbani and providing fresh meat to those in greatest need.
Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) provides Udhiya/Qurbani in more than 40 countries worldwide. ZF ensures the best quality meat for distribution by purchasing well-maintained livestock from local farmers in each country. ZF performs the Udhiya/Qurbani sacrifices during the days of Eid-ul-Adha and the fresh meat is distributed amongst those in need.
Your sacrifice can brighten the smiles of those who may have been long-deprived of such nourishment in places like Gaza, Syria, Mali, and India to name a few.
When it comes to giving in the way of Allah (swt), please remember: a little sacrifice goes a long way.
