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 I Donate My 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.


  • Asiya is a widow who had two daughters, but sadly one died due to poverty and hunger. She depends completely on her brother, but he was also out of work for months due to Covid-19. Even at her age, Asiya has been forced to become a domestic worker just to be able to eat. Masha Allah, she was one of the thousands of people to receive Qurbani from a UKIM donor in 2020 and said with a big smile:
    “I will taste some meat almost after one year. I am very happy…I am very happy. May Allah (SWT) bless you guys for feeding me meat. I am a poor old lady…may Allah listen to my prayers for you.”

  • Em Ahmad, mother of five children, sadly lost her husband due to the war in Syria and has struggled to support her family ever since. Alhamdulillah, a UKIM donor shared the blessings of Eid al-Adha in 2020 and she said:

    “You help me and my family by drawing the smile on my kids’ faces. Thank you from all our hearts.”

  • Brother Ayman lost his work due to Covid-19 and has been unable to support his family of seven people. After receiving his Qurbani from a UKIM donor in 2020, he said:

    “This Qurbani meat will help us cooking for about two weeks. We will make many meals and soups with it. This puts a smile on my loved ones’ faces. We give our prayers and appreciation for you.”

    Ayman, Syrian Refugee

  • Brother Mahmoud is unable to provide for his family due to his old age and difficult health condition. His sons are also struggling to earn a living due unemployment, which is extremely high in Gaza. Alhamdulillah, last year a UKIM donor gave Qurbani and shared the blessings of Eid al-Adha with Mahmoud’s family, and so many others.

    “I’m so happy that this Eid I saw the smile on my grandsons faces when they saw the meat share. It is small gift but it means a lot to us.”

    Mahmoud, Gaza
