QURBANI PROJECT 2020
African Relief Fund (ARF) has distributed Qurbani meat to needy families and IDP’s in Kismayo (Jubbaland), Beledweyne (Hirshabelle), Balanballe (Galmudug), Hargeisa (Somaliland), Balbala (Djibouti), Godey and Dhenan (Ethiopia). Over ten thousand people have benefitted from the Qurbani project this year.
Qurbani is an obligation upon every mature Muslim, male or female, who can afford to perform the sunnah of sacrifice. On that account, ARF launched the campaign 2020 in order to encourage more people to make their Qurbani donation without the slightest hesitation.
There are people who cannot afford to buy a piece of meat to celebrate Eid. Making a Qurbani donation will feed a family and allow them to celebrate Eid just like we do. This act reflects selflessness and generosity and creates strong ties between Muslims around the world.
What is Qurbani?
Simply, it is the act of sacrificing an animal (sheep, cow, camel or goat) for Allah’s sake on the day of Eidul-Adha. So imagine what happens when an obligation like a Qurbani is fulfilled? The reward is boundless as you are following the footsteps of prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) and bringing joy to many hearts.
Who will receive my donation?
On the day of Eid, we deliver your Qurbani donation to the poor people; including orphans, widows and elderly people who cannot afford to buy meat for the day of Eid. We guarantee that all your donations are delivered to those who need it the most.
When can I make my Qurbani donation?
People usually do it during the blessed ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. However, you can make your donation before. The actual sacrifice will be performed on the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah after Eid prayer.
“It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah. It is your piety that reaches Him”
