qurbani 2021

SACRIFICE 

Qurbani
Dhul Hijjah 1442

"For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)"
Tirmidhi

Qurbani/Udhiyah is the sacrifice of a livestock animal during the festival of Eid al-Adha. This occasion takes place each year during Hajj, and dates back to Prophet Ibrahim (as). Traditionally, it was intended to teach Muslims restraint, obedience and devotion. Today, Qurbani serves as a means to actively support the lives of those in need. The sacrifice provides essential protein and nutrients which millions of people lack access to throughout the year. Most importantly, Qurbani is a tangible way to include those most in need in our celebrations, granting them a day of respire and enjoyment.

UMR’s vision is that Qurbani becomes part of our sustainable programs, thereby empowering communities throughout the year. This is only possible with your help. Within the first 3 days of Eid al-Adha this year, UMR will provide individuals in need in 10 countries with fresh meat; including sheep, goat, and cattle. Qurbani won’t solve the world’s poverty crisis. However, it can provide relief to those who need it the most and give them a reason to celebrate this Eid. 

Donate to feed a family this Eid al-Adha.

UMR has been working in conflict zones, like Yemen, for many years, and has a vast network of partners and volunteers that allow our team to access areas where families are in need.

On the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 4th days of Eid usually– however this year may look a bit different due to extremely challenging restrictions related to COVID-19.  To protect the welfare of our staff and beneficiaries and maintain social distancing in coordination with local governments, it may lengthen the process if we distribute door to door. There may also be exceptions due to factors such as the abundant number of Udhiyah/Qurbani or the volatile conditions on the ground in a particular country. In these cases, the Qurbani may be done after the fourth day of Eid. Scholars have approved this practice.

UMR selects beneficiaries based on number of factors: how many children are in one family, if they are elderly or disabled, widowed or orphaned, or internally displaced due to conflict. We carefully screen families to ensure we are truly reaching the most vulnerable people. 

It depends on the country, but each family will receive on average 2kg-3kg. 

Yes! We make sure to use local vendors to purchase the animals. That way, not only are we ensuring fresh meat, but we are supporting the local economy. 

While we have already selected specific areas within some of the countries we plan to distribute, this can vary depending on a lot of factors. Due to the uncertain nature of procuring and distributing fresh meat in conflict zones and unstable areas, we cannot disclose exact distribution points.

When a donor purchases a Qurbani, the entire animal will be divided and distributed to families. In countries where a cow is sacrificed, 1/7th of the animal is equal to approximately 1 sheep or 1 goat.

Unfortunately, UMR cannot accommodate such requests. Due to the large number of animals sacrificed across several countries, the practice becomes impossible. Scholars have approved the sacrifice without the names so long as the intention of the person was made.
