While performing Qurbani or making a Qurbani donation is obligatory in Islam, it is also a wonderful chance to remind ourselves of the complete devotion of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and apply his wisdom to our own life in order to attain closeness with Allah (SWT). By following the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH) and the Holy Qur'an, we can all strive to become the best possible versions of ourselves – and charity is at the heart of Allah’s (SWT) wishes for us.

Although we are all equal in the eyes of Our Creator, sadly, poverty, conflict, and disaster have created a divide between us and our less fortunate brothers and sisters. 
As a result, it is imperative that we remember that all our wealth and material possessions are not our own – they belong to Allah (SWT) for He has blessed us with them, yet we cannot take them with us in the Hereafter. Therefore, it is our duty to share the rewards of our own good fortune not only with our loved ones but also with our brothers and sisters both in our local community and in the global Ummah. Your Eid ul-Adha donation can save lives.

Why Do We Donate Qurbani?

The act of performing Qurbani carries great meaning and significance as it represents the sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim (AS) was prepared to make atop Mount Arafat all those years ago. This year, as you make your Qurbani donation and follow in the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), take a moment to reflect on the courage and dedication that Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and his son, Ismail (AS), showed on that fateful day. Although Allah (SWT) does not ask us to make sacrifices as great as this, the act of Qurbani serves to remind us of Our Creator and the blessings He can give us when we follow His wishes.

When Should You Give Qurbani?

For those wondering “When do you give Qurbani?”, many Muslims choose to donate during the days of Dhul Hijjah, but others prefer to donate their Qurbani up to a month before Eid ul-Adha.

Regardless of when you order your Qurbani, you can rest assured that the sacrifice will only be performed on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, in accordance with Qurbani rules.

What is the Prophetic Qurbani?

The Prophet (SAW) gave Qurbani twice – once for his own share, and a second on behalf of those who could not give their own Qurbani. This selfless act of generosity is called the Prophetic Qurbani.

Some Muslims choose to perform the Prophetic Qurbani and donate in excess on behalf of their brothers and sisters who cannot donate, while others opt to donate an additional share in memory of a loved one.

Although it is obligatory for every eligible Muslim to provide one Qurbani share, there is no upper limit on the number of shares you can donate. If you are in a position to be able to give more on behalf of yourself or another person, we would be extremely grateful to receive your contribution and distribute it to those in need across the world. This kind act will enable those who cannot afford to donate Qurbani to also receive the rewards of this sacred tradition.

UKIM’s Qurbani Appeal

Carrying out Qurbani by way of traditional methods simply isn’t possible in the UK, which is why UKIM accepts your Qurbani donations. Instead of slaughtering the animal yourself and distributing the meat among yourself, your family and friends, and those in poverty, you can donate Qurbani to a charity such as us.

When you give Qurbani in 2024 to UKIM, you can rest assured that an animal will be slaughtered in a country of your choosing in the most humane way possible. The meat from this animal will then be distributed among those in poverty. As a result, you won’t be able to participate in the custom of sharing the meat, but you’ll reap the rewards of all that’s promised by partaking in Qurbani.

Qurbani 2024 Prices

Each year, the Qurbani prices will shift slightly; however, regardless of price, the shares largely remain the same. For instance, small animals, such as sheep or goats, are worth one share of Qurbani, meaning they only account for one person’s contribution. On the other hand, larger animals, such as cows, buffalos, or camels, are worth seven shares, meaning they account for seven people’s contributions.

While only non-disabled adults of sound mind who exceed the Nisab threshold are obligated to perform Qurbani, the head of the household will sometimes purchase a larger animal on behalf of the whole family.

Fulfil Your Islamic Obligation with UKIM

If you’re obliged to partake in Qurbani traditions, UKIM is here to help. Simply select the country or countries you’d like the meat to be distributed among, as well as the animal(s) you’d like to sacrifice. We will adhere to all regulations when it comes to slaughtering the animal to ensure your donation qualifies as Qurbani. Following this, we’ll ensure the most desperate members of society receive the meat so they can enjoy a nutritious Eid meal.

Make a donation to the UKIM Qurbani Appeal to change lives globally this Eid ul-Adha.
