Umm-Al-Qura calendar

Each year that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave Qurbani, he donated two shares’ worth. One Qurbani share was on his own behalf; however, he donated a second share on behalf of the Ummah. He did this to maximise his impact and also enable those without a means of giving Qurbani to reap the benefits. This is where the custom of Prophetic Qurbani comes in.

Prophetic Qurbani

What is Prophetic Qurbani?

Prophetic Qurbani mirrors the act of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as it involves a Muslim donating two Qurbani shares – one on their own behalf and one on behalf of the Ummah. Donating a Prophetic Qurbani allows you to reach more people in need and reap more rewards in the eyes of Allah (SWT).

Why Give Prophetic Qurbani?

Giving Prophetic Qurbani allows us to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet (PBUH), expressing our dedication to the Ummah and our willingness to make sacrifices in the name of Allah (SWT). What’s more, this practice allows us to feed twice as many people, giving them an opportunity to enjoy fresh meat during the days of Eid al-Adha.

When is Prophetic Qurbani Given?

Prophetic Qurbani is carried out at exactly the same time as standard Qurbani, meaning you can pay your Prophetic Qurbani to UKIM at any point during the build-up to Eid al-Adha. The sacrifices will then take place during the days of Eid al-Adha.

Can You Give Qurbani on Behalf of Prophets?

Due to the name, it’s widely misunderstood that Prophetic Qurbani refers to a person giving Qurbani on behalf of prophets. Despite this, some scholars actually don’t allow Qurbani to be done on behalf of Prophets. Instead, Prophetic Qurbani mirrors the practice of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), wherein a Muslim donates on their own behalf, as well as on behalf of the Ummah.
