Qurbani / Udhiya recurs every year when Muslims around the world commemorate Hajj (Pilgrimage) and Eid Al-Adha celebration.
Those who are financially able, sacrifice livestock in a humane and responsible manner, to share with others and feed the needy.
Donations for Qurbani will be reopened next season
Qurbani was among the first programs started by Islamic Relief in 1986. Last year, our global Qurbani efforts meant that 3.3 million people in over 30 countries felt the joy of Eid, because of you.
While sourcing livestock we remain mindful of availability, cost, quality and the effect on local markets. The meat is distributed fresh, chilled or frozen, according to what is appropriate for the dietary culture of the region. Each packet is 2-5 kilograms of meat and feeds a family of 4-8 people.
It is not just an obligation, but a great way to share the joy of Eid with the poorest of the poor.
