Urgent Appeal Pakistan

Donating for Kashmir

On Monday evening, a cloudburst caused havoc in Salkhala village in the Azad Kashmir district of Neelum.

Salkhala village was hit by heavy storms leading to flash floods and some residents have been injured and others have been reported missing.  During the flash floods, 17 houses were totally destroyed, while 12 others were completely damaged. Many livestock and vehicles have been destroyed along with fruit trees in the floods.

As a result of continued rains, darkness, and flash floods around the scene, rescue operations were delayed for several hours after the incident. It is a tough time for the people of the valley, and they need help.

KORT has always contributed to their success by giving from the heart. A substantial amount of damage has been done to homes, motorbikes, and about 17 houses have been totally destroyed and require complete rebuilding.

Donate Your Interest

اَللّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَعُوذُ بِكَ مِن الرِّبَا

Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minar riba

O Allah! I seek your protection from interest/usury.

As a basic rule, no true Muslim by his/her totally free choice wishes to invest or transfer his cash in an interest-bearing plan or account.

 

In western nations, when someone inadvertently gets interest funds, they should not use this quantity for their individual advantage. In this case it is binding upon them to give this amount as sadaqah to the needy who are suitable for zakat. This is not the typical sadaqah which a Muslim provides of his lawful income with an intent to get benefit in the Hereafter. Instead, this sadaqah is implied just for getting rid of off an unlawful and dirty cash, and to eliminate oneself from the concern of an ill-gotten gain.

 

It should be kept in mind that this quantity is dirty just for the individual who has received it as interest. The poor person who gets it from them as sadaqah can use this amount for their personal benefits.

It was narrated that Jaabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) cursed the one who consumes ribaa, the one who pays it, the one who writes it down and the two who witness it. He said they are all the same.” (Narrated by Muslim).

In Islam, it is forbidden for Muslims to both get and pay interest (Riba). This indicates Muslims cannot charge interest on financial obligations or money owed. Bank account typically accumulate interest in time which suggests many Muslims unintentionally acquire interest without actively seeking to.

 

As per the Qur’an, in addition to its being haram for Muslims to charge interest, they cannot invest interest money in a manner that advantages themselves. This indicates if Muslims collect interest through inadvertent ways, they should invest it in such a way that does not supply them with any advantages.

Can You Provide Interest Money to Charity in Islam?

An appropriate way for Muslims to spend Riba is to contribute it to charity. Rewards will not be received for doing so, but by contributing Riba to a charitable cause, your wealth will be cleansed, and you will have disposed of the haram Riba in such a way that does not benefit yourself. For this, you will be rewarded for cleansing yourself of haram.

Can Riba be used as Zakat?

Interest money may be donated to charity; however, it cannot be spent as Zakat. The donor does so out of a spiritual commitment under the 3rd pillar of Islam when Zakat is provided. In addition, when Zakat is provided, the donor can expect to receive a benefit, but an individual who offers Riba to charity ought to do so without intending or expecting to receive a benefit (sawab).

Donate Your Riba Today

If you have accumulated Riba (interest) automatically through your bank, you might donate it to KORT. Your wealth will be cleansed, and we will use your interest cash to assist those most in requirement. Contribute your Riba to KORT today or contact us on 0300 123 7774 to discover out more.

Qurbani 2021

Sacrificing of cattle in the way of Allah is a great act of worship. It brings the person offering the sacrifice close of Allah. Abu Hurairah (R.A.) reported that Prophet (S.A.W.) said: “Whoever can afford it [sacrifice], but does not offer a sacrifice, let him not come near our prayer place.” (Ibn Majah: 3123)

Praise be to The Al-Mighty, last year we were able to carry out a record 105 Qurbanis of large animals as part of our Annual Qurbani Project for the poor & needy. Due to the volume of animals involved, the Qurbanis were carried out in 6 different locations across Azad Kashmir. Over 8,000 needy people were given 2kg worth of meat each. Thank you to all our donors who booked their Qurbani through KORT.

Qurbani season is right here! Some of you early risers have already begun investigating where to provide your Qurbani this year, so right here’s an article including whatever you need to recognize about the KORT Qurbani Programme. This consists of where we function, our Qurbani rates as well as whom your Qurbani will be profiting.

Qurbani, or Udhiyah in Arabic, means sacrifice. Every year Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, a sheep, a cow or a camel – to reflect Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail for the sake of The Al-Mighty.

Sayyiduna Zayd ibn Arqam (radiyallahu ‘anhu) relates that the Companions asked:

‘O Messenger of Allah! What is Udhiyah?’ He replied, ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam).’ They asked again, ‘What benefit do we get from it?’ He answered, ‘A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).’ ‘And [what reward is there for animals with] wool, O Messenger of Allah?’ they asked. ‘A reward’, he said, ‘for every fibre of the wool.’

 

KORT Qurbani Appeal 2021

Last year your Qurbanis provided over 40,000 needy people with fresh meat across Azad Kashmir to enjoy a good meal during Eid-Ul-Adha.

Once again, we shall be conducting our Qurbani program during Eid-Ul-Adha 2021 where your Qurbani will be carried out according to Shariah Law, and the meat will be distributed personally by our Muskorteers among the poor & needy.

Cost:

£425 for 1 Full Cow (7 shares) or £61 per share.

Due to a limited number of Qurbanis, bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis.

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said “Whoever offers a sacrifice after the (Eid) prayer has completed his rituals (of Eid) and has followed the way of the Muslims.” (Bukhari)

KORT 2021 QURBANI APPEAL NOW CLOSED!


Assalamu Alaykum all, Alhamdulillah we have reached are target for Qurbani this year and the appeal is now closed. JazakAllah and thank you to everyone who has booked their Qurbani with KORT. May Allah accept your Qurbanis and bless you and your families abundantly. Please remember KORT in your duas.

Qurbani understanding

Sacrifice of a animal for Eid al Adha can only be done throughout the defined days i-e After Eid Prayer (10th of Dhul Hijjah) and prior to sunset of 13th Dhul Hijjah. Whoever does not follow these days must recognize that their sacrifice will certainly not be legitimate if it is not offered in between 10th – 13th Dhul Hijjah. A sheep or goat is made use of as a lone offering and is enough for one person whereas a camel or a cow can be shared by seven individuals. The person should try to slaughter the animal with his own hands in order to meet the Sunnah. If one is not able to do so after that he can appoint someone else to do the same on his part yet one must witness his sacrifice.

It is highly urged that the one who intends to offer the Qurbani does not cut their hair or nails, starting from the first day of Dhul Hijjah up till after the sacrifice.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘When the ten days (of Dhul Hijjah) start, and one of you intends to sacrifice, then let him not cut his hair or his nails’. (Muslim)

At least one third of the meat from the animal must go to people who are poor or in vulnerable situations. Qurbani is mandatory for every Muslim who has reached the age of puberty, and who can afford it.

This year we will be running our Annual Qurbani Project once again and as usual there will be a limited number of slots. This is to ensure that your Qurbani is carried out according to the Shariah Law.

This year, Eid ul Adha 2021 or Bakra Eid 2021 is expected to be commemorated on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. This is the tentative day as the real day rests to the sighting of the moon of Dhul Hijjah, 1442, the 12th and last month of Islamic Calendar.

We advise you to give as very early as feasible, as KORT has a set quota of Qurbanis.
