How Much Qurbani Should I Give?

Give Qurbani

The believers are urged to give Qurbani for the sake of Allah (SWT). Qurbani has been made a source of feeding the hungry and the vulnerable.

Allah (SWT) says about Qurbani:

“That they may witness [i.e., attend] benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah on known [i.e., specific] days over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. So, eat of them and feed the miserable and poor.” [Al-Quran 22:28]

 

Qurbani is inspired by the spirit of submission to the Lord. An Eid-al-Adha sacrifice is offered in memory of Prophet Ibrahim’s (A.S) complete submission to Allah (SWT). Qurbani requires the need for purity of intention and feeling of compassion on behalf of a Muslim. It involves the accomplishment of religious obligation and social responsibility at the same time. The believers must hasten to arrange their Qurbani and help feed distressed families.

The Reward of Qurbani

Qurbani is the best deed to be performed in the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah – the sacred month in Islam. It is a matter of huge rewards as the righteous deeds of Dhul Hijjah contain great virtue. According to a report in hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

“There is no act of man on the day of Nahr (Eid al-Adha) more beloved unto Allah than the sacrifice. And indeed, the sacrificed animal will appear on Qiyamat day with its horns, hooves, and skin. And indeed, the blood of the sacrifice is accepted by Allah even before it touches the ground. So, perform the sacrifice with a happy heart.” [Ibn Maja, Tirmidhi]

Where to Give Qurbani

The scholars state that it is best to offer Qurbani in one’s own country. However, it is permissible to give sacrifice in another part of the world to help poverty and hunger. This ensures Qurbani meat is distributed amongst those in greater need of help. There is a great emphasis in Islam on feeding those in need. Allah (SWT) says in a verse of the Quran:

“And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols [i.e., rites] of Allah; for you therein is good. So, mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy [who does not seek aid] and the beggar. Thus, have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful.” [Al-Quran 22:36]

 

How to Give Qurbani

As discussed above, Qurbani must accompany piety, intention of the heart and devotion to Allah (SWT).

“It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah, but what does reach Him is the taqwa (the sense of obedience) on your part. Thus, He has made them (the animals) subjugated to you, so that you proclaim Allah’s glory for the guidance He gave you. And give good news to those who are good in their deeds.” [Al-Quran 22:37]

 

In addition to this, the slaughter must be made by reciting Allah’s (SWT) name as mentioned in the following verse.

“And for every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies, that they may mention the Name of Allah over the beast of cattle that He has given them for food.” [Al-Quran 22:34]

 

There are certain guidelines for offering the sacrifice yourself. These include the following points:

  • The words of “Bismillahi Allahu Akbar” mut be said before slaughter.
  • The animal should be faced towards Qibla.
  • A sharp knife should be used for slaughter.
  • An animal should not be slaughtered in the presence of another animal.

For those who donate their Qurbani to charities, sincere intention and timely payment are a must. You can donate to the live Qurbani appeal of Orphans in Need or via online payment on our donation page.

When to Give Qurbani

The valid time to give Qurbani is between Eid-al-Adha prayer on 10th Dhul Hijjah to 12th Dhul Hijjah. The sacrifice offered before Eid prayer is not considered Qurbani. It is advisable to plan for the upcoming sacrifice and make the required payment in advance.

Who Needs to Give Qurbani?

All Muslims able to afford the sacrifice should give Qurbani. The Prophet’s (SAW) example is significant in this regard. According to sound narrations, the Prophet (SAW) was consistent with his offering in the days of Eid-al-Adha. Furthermore, he also performed the sacrifice with his own hands. The believers are also encouraged to be steadfast in carrying out righteous deeds, particularly those established from the Sunnah.

How Much Qurbani Should I Give?

For one person, one Qurbani is sufficient, which could be a small animal or a share in a large animal. A small animal consists of one portion and a large animal has seven portions.

The scholars state that one Qurbani is enough for one person and his family. However, if someone wants to give Qurbani on behalf of their family members, they can do so. It is also permissible to include the deceased relatives in Qurbani shares. They will receive the reward of charity performed on their behalf.

Orphans in Need has ensured the sacrifice is priced reasonably to allow you to do your own Qurbani easily. Our Great Value Qurbani brings the possibility of an additional offering for everyone. Donate your sacrifice to Orphans in Need and earn abundant rewards in the sacred days of Dhul Hijjah.
