Follow the Sunnah of Ibrahim (as)
What is Qurbani?
Sacrifice is referred to as Qurbani. In the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims slaughter an animal to reflect the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God, every year. Qurbani distributions in 2024 are expected to reach a greater number of people than they have in the past.
Following the sacrifice of the animal, the meat is distributed to those in need.
Every Muslim who is financially able to do so is required to donate Qurbani. There are also Qurbani rules that govern which animals can be sacrificed, as well as the quality of their lives, their health status, and the manner in which the sacrifice must be performed.
By donating your Qurbani to Global Helping Hands, you will be helping the world’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in over 10 countries celebrate Eid, which is often the only time of the year when many families eat meat.
Dhul Hijjah 1444
Dhul Hijjah is one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar, SubhanAllah.
We witness two very special events (Hajj and Eid ul Adha) during this month of increased spirituality – all in devotion to Allah (SWT).
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days” (Bukhari), meaning the (first) ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.
The month of Dhul Hijjah is the final month in the Islamic calendar. During this time, it is considered an obligation from the Sunnah for Muslims who hold an amount greater than the level of Nisab, to give Qurbani as an act of worship, as shown by the example of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS).
You can help those in need of a fresh meat those fleeing violence, and those coping with poverty, trauma, injury, and weakness.
Donate to our Qurbani appeals to provide relief and sustenance to families all over the world.
Qurbani occurs in the 12th and final month of the Islamic calendar, Dhul Hijjah, and coincides with the celebration of Eid al-Adha.
You must make every effort to make your Qurbani donation on time. The goal of Global Helping Hands is to complete all Qurbanis in three days (10th to 12th Dhul Hijjah).
When the sun sets on the fourth day, the time for sacrifice is over. As a result, you have until the end of the third day after Eid (13th of Dhul-Hijjah) before Maghrib salah to make payments. However, we recommend performing your Qurbani as soon as possible.
Donate your Qurbani with GHH this year and you can gain the pleasure of Allah by helping those most in need and we can celebrate Eid ul Adha 2023 together as one Ummah.
