Qurbani is a beautiful reminder of the story of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS). His great sacrifice symbolises complete submission to Allah (SWT), encouraging believers to achieve closeness to Allah (SWT) by following his noble example. Qurbani defines the noble lives of the esteemed prophets, including the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The believers are encouraged to reflect on their struggles and strive to become better Muslims.

Eid-al-Adha is an important time for the believers to share their blessings with less fortunate individuals. The month of Dhul Hijjah is accompanied by the spirit of submission, which encourages generosity and compassion. By offering a sacrifice, you can give the gift of vital food to the needy orphans and widows. Qurbani’s meaning involves giving charity, as a sacrifice is an effective way of performing charitable deeds. Your Qurbani donations can ease the suffering of many going through hunger and poverty this Eid al-Adha.

Allah (SWT) commands the believers to share their Qurbani with the poor and the needy:

“So, eat thereof and feed the distressed, the poor.” [Al-Hajj 22:28]


Qurbani is offered in fulfilment of the commands of Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (SAW). Allah (SWT) says in the Quran:

“So, offer Salah (prayer) to your Lord, and sacrifice.” [108:2]

In another verse, Allah (SWT) instructs the believers to proclaim full obedience to Him:

“Say, “My prayer, my offering, my life and my death are for Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.” [6:162]

In addition to the above verses, there are several narrations in hadith, encouraging Muslims to make the sacrifice. According to one report, the Prophet (SAW) said:

“Whoever offers a sacrifice after the prayer has completed his rituals (of Eid) and has followed the way of the Muslims.” [Bukhari, 5545]


Qurbani is offered in the days of Eid al-Adha. The sacrifice is only valid if performed on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, in accordance with Qurbani rules. Those donating Qurbani to charitable organisations can give Qurbani donations in advance. It ensures the charity receives your contributions on time to make the slaughter in the prescribed days.


The Prophet (SAW) gave an additional Qurbani – one on his behalf and the other on behalf of the Ummah. The Prophetic Qurbani refers to an additional Qurbani in imitation of the Prophet (SAW).

Some Muslims choose to perform the Prophetic Qurbani and donate in excess of their own sacrifice on behalf of someone else or a loved one.

According to Hanafi school of thought, it is obligatory for every eligible Muslim to provide one Qurbani share. However, there is no limit to the number of shares you can donate. If you are in a position to give more than one share, UKIM would be grateful to receive your contribution and distribute it to those in need across the world. Your generosity will enable those in need to enjoy nutritious meals during the joyous days of Eid.


As the UK has certain laws around slaughtering, making the sacrifice yourself is not normally an option.

UKIM has facilitated the process of UK Qurbani for those intending to make sacrifice in 2024. By giving your Qurbani to UKIM, you will ensure the slaughter of an animal in a country of your choice in the prescribed way. The meat from this animal will then be distributed among the needy individuals according to Qurbani rules. Donate your Qurbani to UKIM and secure the reward of sacrifice in the sacred month of Dhul Hijjah.


Each year, Qurbani prices change slightly and are updated closer to the time. The Qurbani price depends on the selected animal and the number of shares. A whole animal like a goat or a sheep is usually more expensive than a share in a large animal.

Small animals such as sheep or goats are worth one share of Qurbani, whereas large animals like camels and cows are worth seven shares of Qurbani, which means seven people can share the Qurbani of a large animal. The head of the household sometimes purchases a larger animal on behalf of the whole family. According to the Qurbani rules, the adults of sound mind who exceed the Nisab threshold are obligated to perform Qurbani.


Performing Qurbani with UKIM is easy and straightforward. Simply select the animal and the country where you want the Qurbani to be performed and make the required payment. Our team will do the hard work for you! We will ensure the most desperate members of society receive the meat of your Qurbani.

Qurbani in the UK can be a blessing for many in disadvantaged areas of the world. Make a donation to UKIM’s Qurbani Appeal 2024 and help change lives this Eid al-Adha.
