With a history of conflict between neighbouring regions, and a pandemic, the people of Kashmir have been suffering for far too long. They have been stripped of their freedoms, unable to leave their homes, and denied access to food and better healthcare. Many orphan and widow families living in Kashmir rarely get the opportunity to celebrate Eid ul-Adha and this year we want to make sure that they do.
Give your Qurbani and help feed orphans in Jammu and Kashmir from just £57
“Or feeding, on a day of severe hunger, an orphan of near relationship, or a needy person in misery. And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to compassion. Those are the companions of the right.” (Qur’an 90:14)
Qurbani falls on the 10th, 11th and the 12th of Dhul Hijjah which, in the UK, is predicted to begin on the 20th of July. Qurbani is carried out on the three days of Eid and signifies the difficult decision prophet Ibrahim AS made to sacrifice his son Ismail for the sake of Allah (SWT).
If you are eligible to give Qurbani, (i.e. meet the nisab threshold) then you are expected to make a sacrifice of an animal, usually a goat, sheep, cow or camel, that is then distributed amongst friends, family and the poor.
‘The Prophet (saw) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’. [Tabarani and Ahmad]
We make sure that the sacrifice is carried out and delivered on the three days of Eid so that the less fortunate can enjoy the festivities. Your Qurbani brings joy to impoverished families, it also benefits the communities they live in too. We source the meat from local farmers to improve their livelihoods and choose only the animals that are suited for Qurbani for you.
Give your Qurbani and bring joy to orphans and widows in Jammu and Kashmir.
Orphans and widows who live in extreme poverty often go days without any food or water. Deemed as the lowest in society and deprived of their basic human rights, we make sure that they are never forgotten.
Bring joy to orphan and widow families in Jammu & Kashmir for £57 with your Qurbani.
