The Importance of Qurbani

It is considered a Sunnah, following the exemplary practice of Prophet Muhammad SAW, and offers immense rewards and blessings from Allah SWT. By participating in Qurbani, Muslims can emulate the devotion of Prophet Ibrahim AS and strengthen their faith.
Who is eligible for Qurbani?
Anyone who has the financial means can participate in Qurbani. It is an inclusive act of worship that promotes unity and social responsibility. Muslims of all backgrounds are encouraged to engage in this sacred tradition and share the joyous celebration of Eid-ul-Adha with those in need.
Participation in Qurbani

Can I donate on behalf of someone else?

Distribution and Impact
What happens to the meat from the Qurbani?
The meat from the Qurbani is distributed among those in need. IDRF ensures that it reaches deserving individuals and communities across the world.
Is it possible to track the impact of my donation?
Yes, IDRF provides updates and reports on the distribution of Qurbani meat and the communities it benefits. You can stay informed about the impact of your contribution and the positive change it brings.
Timing and Availability
Can I donate Qurbani throughout the year?
No. Traditionally, Qurbani is performed during Eid-ul-Adha, which means that IDRF only accepts donations for Qurbani before Eid-ul-Adha.
When does the sacrifice happen?
IDRF is committed to ensuring that the sacrifice and distribution of meat occur 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.
What countries does IDRF conduct Qurbani in?
This year, IDRF will be conducting Qurbani in Bangladesh (including Rohingya Refugees), India, Kashmir, Palestine, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Turkiye & Syria (including Syrian and Uyghur Refugees), Chad, Mali, Niger, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Can I mark my funds for a particular geographic region within the country?
In order to reach those who are 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.
Can I choose whether to give a cow, sheep, or goat share?
All prices listed above are one share of a cow, except for in Southern Africa, where we are doing goats, and India, where we are doing water buffalo. If you’d like to do an entire cow, add seven shares to your cart. If you’d like to do a whole goat, please donate one share towards Southern Africa.
What if there is a major crisis or disaster or community unrest or legal crackdown?
IDRF is committed to doing its 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. 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.
