Give Your Qurbani Early.
Humaniti is partaking in Qurbani so we can continue to help those in need, especially during these blessed days of Dhul Hijjah. We will be giving to those who know too well the stabs of hunger, of loneliness, of sadness.
Best Days of the Year.
During these blessed 10 days, when you sacrifice something for the sake of Allah, the sacrifice is never in vain. Our Prophet (S) said, “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Bukhari) Will we strive to become beloved to Allah? Imagine. Reap the rewards of these blessed days.
During these days, challenge yourself to look within your hearts. Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was rewarded for the willingness to sacrifice what was beloved to him. The willingness.
And Allah rewarded his willingness with an opportunity to sacrifice something he can feed to those who need it. Isn’t that beautiful?
During these 10 days, don’t lose out on an opportunity to feed others. Who knows - perhaps your giving is what will elevate you in ranks in this world and the next. Challenge yourself to see how we can sacrifice what we love for the sake of Allah, and for the sake of those who have nothing to cling to.
Let’s give them hope during these 10 days.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs to perform Qurbani?
Qurbani is obligatory upon every sane adult Muslim male/female who can afford to do so. Typically, those who are able to pay Zakat are obliged to give Qurbani.
How does Humaniti select recipients of Qurbani meat?
Our international NGOs we will assess and identify which families have higher priority in receiving the Qurbani. The families most in need are assessed according to the following criteria:
- Families who live on less than the minimum income for that particular country
- Female-headed households
- Families with disabled and/or elderly persons
- Children under five years old
- Pregnant women
- Breastfeeding mothers
- Families with little or no access to the market
Do I have to perform Qurbani on behalf of my children?
Please consult your local Imam/Sheikh, as this depends on the school of thought you follow. According to the Hanafi school of thought it is obligatory for every sane Muslim of mature age, non-travelling. This also includes those who own wealth which is beyond their needs.
Do you need to give all the names of the people who are giving Qurbani? And will their names be called out during slaughter?
No, as it will be strenuous to recite the names of all the thousands of donors. Scholars have approved the sacrifice without the names as long as the intention of the person was made. We encourage everyone to make their intention when donating their Qurbani.
What types of Qurbani meat does Humaniti provide?
In most countries, fresh qurbani is provided where the animals are slaughtered and the meat is distributed locally. However, in some countries where fresh Qurbani is unavailable, we ship the meat frozen/chilled. It will then be distributed on the third day of Eid onwards, in order to be cost-effective, while still providing families the opportunity to eat the meat provided.
Until when can I make my Qurbani payments?
We will close off by July 18th (8th of Dhul hijjah) so full payment is required at time of ordering.
When should we give money for Qurbani?
As early as possible. Humaniti implements the Qurbani over 4 days (10th to 13th Dhul Hijjah). We purchase the animals to be slaughtered in advance based on forecasted quotas.
Why does Humaniti include an admin charge in its Qurbani pricing?
These charges cover the cost of slaughtering, cutting, distribution, and transportation to ensure we get the Qurbani meat quickly to the families in need.
How is Qurbani performed at Humaniti?
Qurbani is performed by our trusted international partners who have been providing these services for tens of thousands of donors across the globe.
Can we offer more than one Qurbani?
Yes! You are allowed to offer more than one sacrifice. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) himself carried out multiple Qurbani for himself and the Ummah. Many Muslims offer multiple Qurbani on behalf of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and for deceased parents.
If someone intends to offer a sacrifice, when should they stop clipping their nails?
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) “When you see the new moon of Dhul Hijjah, and one of you desires that he offer a sacrifice, then let him keep [i.e. not cut] his hair and nails.” (Sahih Muslim v. 13, p. 2452)
