Give Qurbani with us and reach those who need it most this Eid al-Adha in Yemen.
Despite years of war, famine and disease our brothers and sisters in Yemen have to also grapple with the coronavirus pandemic. This means that the country is currently facing the threat of extinction with a significant number of its population dying from starvation and malnutrition. Paying your Qurbani to Yemen could literally save a life.
What is Qurbani?
Qurbani (Udhiyah in Arabic) is the word that describes the sacrifice of a sheep or cow for the sake of Allah. During the month of Dhul-Hijjah Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) obedience and readiness to sacrifice his son Ismail (AS), for the sake of Allah. Due to this tradition, Qurbani is obligatory for every Muslim who has reached the age of puberty, and who can afford it. If you are eligible to pay Zakat then you must pay Qurbani.
The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said: “For every hair of the Qurbani, you will receive a reward from Allah, and for every strand of its wool you will receive a reward.” [Tirmidhi]
Qurbani is a great way to help the needy in Yemen who suffer from the adverse conditions of poverty. This is especially true since Yemen is in desperate need of food especially during the festive period of Eid al-Adha, which is supposed to be a time for celebrating, not hunger.
Why Give Qurbani with us?
Your Qurbani plays an important role in Yemen since 80% of the country is desperately in need of food. This is true especially during Eid as it is a time for celebration, not hunger.
