“So pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone].” ( Al-Kawthar 108/2)
Alhamdolilah with the help of Allah swt, KORT managed to do Qurbani in 36 different cities and locations in AZAD KASHMIR and PUNJAB. Over 60,000 people benefited. We thank all our Donors and especially all the KORT team, management and Muskorteers for managing this huge project . May Allah swt accept everyone’s support and
We make it easy for you, by asking for a donation to purchase such animals, that animal then being blessed and sacrificed in the fast and gentle method of our faith, and its meat divided and handed down to the needy and hungry, who too rarely enjoy these foods.
As you can all imagine that Qurbani Project is probably one of the hardest projects to run. This is why KORT always caps the project at a realistic number which we know we can deliver.
We Must Arrange:
- Heaps of planning months before Qurbani
- The animals,
- The logistics of bringing the cattle to us,
- The logistics to take live cattle to other cities,
- Organize many butchers in various areas,
- Refrigerated trucks to distribute and store meat,
- And many volunteers to help over the 3 days of Eid.
So please before you give Qurbani next time ask yourself a question. The Charities that take on unlimited Qurbani’s how do they do it? As a Muslim it is your duty to check where your donation is being spent. The donation you give to KORT is YOUR Amanat with us. We are answerable to you, and we are answerable to Allah. We carry out all our work with this fear and thought in our mind.
To safeguard that the meat for Qurbani is acquired according to Sharia, we ensure the following:
- That the animal is in good physical shape.
- The animal is at the minimum age required (at least one year of age).
- The animal was not stunned during the slaughter process and the meat is of good quality for eating.
- The Qurbani is held after Eid prayer. (not before)
Every 2kg portion of Qurbani meat is provided safely, and properly, under supervision by our KORT Muskorteers.
Your Qurbani contribution simply surpasses the families who receive meat. Our volunteers ensure that the sacrifice and distribution of meat are done to the greatest requirement, and all meat is sourced locally. In this method, we can create jobs and promote the local economy.
COST Update of KORT QURBANI 2021:
As always KORT is 100% transparent, Alhamdulillah the average cost of each Qurbani animal including logistics etc is £368. This means we have £57 left over from the £425 that was given for each Qurbani. We will be contacting all our Qurbani donors to inform of above and they have an option, either we can refund the £57 or they can donate back to KORT, which we will put towards next year’s Qurbani project.
In 2020 we had money left over and we informed all our donors. All our donors asked us to keep the money and use it in 2021 Qurbani project. Allhamdullilah we purchased 9 animals (this year) with this money and gave Qurbani in the name of the Prophet and his blessed family.
This is Amanat and it’s our obligatory duty to inform our donors.
Thank you to everyone for your support and generosity for KORT.
