Qurbani Udhiya Spread the Joy of Eid

"It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim AS.
For every hair of the Qurbani, you receive a
reward from Allah SWT."

-Al-Tirmidhi

In the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (as)

Every year on Eid ul Adha we make a sacrifice for the sake of Allah (SWT). This sacrifice (Qurbani/Udhiya) signifies our faith and celebrates the sacrifice of our father Ibrahim (as). And beyond that, the Qurbani/Udhiya serves to feed the needy and vulnerable so they can also participate in this celebration. 

QURBANI FAQ

What countries does IDRF conduct Qurbani in?

This year IDRF will be conducting Qurbani in Bangladesh, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, India, Palestine, Somalia and in Canada. A country-wise price table with various options is listed above.

What happens during the sacrifice?

A guiding prayer is said over the process and a specific phrase is spoken when the animal is killed. We work with experienced butchers and faith leaders in the community throughout the entire process, to ensure that the slaughter of the animal is done in a manner that is appropriate to that specific context and those people being served by it. Everyone there has a vested interested in doing this in accordance with their own religious tradition, and seeing it done properly.

When does the sacrifice happen?

IDRF is committed to ensuring that the sacrifice and distribution of meat occurs in a time and manner that is appropriate for the people in that country to celebrate Eid Al-Adha, under the guidance of local religious leaders.

Can the name of the person donating (or a loved one) be read aloud during the sacrifice?

No, we cannot accommodate that request. We receive hundreds of donations and it would be impossible to coordinate with partners.

Can I mark my funds for a particular geographic region within the country?

In order to reach those most in need, we need to have the flexibility to allocate meat distribution throughout the country. Therefore donors can choose the country, but not a specific geographical location within that country.

To whom does the meat get distributed?

IDRF is committed to helping people on the basis of need, and work with community partners to make sure that those in greatest need are served the Qurbani/Udhiya and that communities are involved in that process to ensure peace and buy-in regardless of ethnicity or religious beliefs.

Can I choose whether to give a cow, sheep, or goat share?

This year, we are only advertising a price per share, rather than choosing a specific animal, for flexibility and to ensure the best price and acceptability in the community.

What if there is a major crisis or disaster or community unrest or legal crackdown?

IDRF is committed to doing our best to ensure that Qurbani is carried out. That may mean that we have to relocate to a different geographic area, or bear the cost of paying for last minute arrangements elsewhere, then we will find a way. If we truly could not, we will notify our donors, but this would need to be a major global disaster. This has never happened to date.
