What is Udhiyah Qurbani?
Udhiyah (Qurbani in Urdu) means offering or sacrifice. It is an annual ritual sacrifice that the majority of scholars say is “strongly recommended.” Hanafis hold it as “obligatory,” for anyone who can afford it during the days of Eid Al-Adhah during the Islamic month of Dhu’l-Hijjah. The sacrifice is a livestock animal: camel, cow, sheep, or goat. The meat is then typically divided into thirds. It can be distributed to family, friends, and the poor (both Muslims and non-Muslims).
This is to honor the tradition of Prophet Abraham (on him be peace). He was ready to sacrifice his son Ishmael (on him be peace) when God commanded him.
Ever wonder where your Udhiyah Qurbani donation goes when you give to Zakat Foundation?
First, we submit your order to our field workers in a country of your choice (or where most needed). They’ve been working hard to ensure your livestock is healthy, happy and humanely raised.
After we hand-slaughter your Udhiyah Qurbani according to Islamic guidelines, we then prepare and package your fresh (never canned, never frozen) zabiha meat for distribution to the poor.
Then we hand-deliver it to widows, orphans, refugees and the hunger-stricken who wait eagerly for your Eid gifts of meat — a rare treat. We reach them in 40 countries around the world!
Bringing joy and relief to those in need from India to Rwanda, Yemen to Pakistan, Bosnia to Syria, Palestine to Kenya, El Salvador and more.
Lastly — and believe us it happens every time — they raise their hands up to Allah and pray for you who sent them this food gift.
