The days of Dhul Hijjah as well as the event of Eid al-Adha is just one of one of the most essential periods in the Muslim calendar. Many of us will certainly be arranging Qurbani weeks before Eid, also it is very important that we satisfy this obligation in the right way.
Qurbani is an annual sacrifice of a cattle provided to Allah throughout the days of Eid al-Adha, marking the conclusion of Hajj.
This sacrifice honours the activities of the Prophet Ibrahim (as), when he was prepared to give up his cherished child Isma’il (as) after seeing in a desire that Allah wanted him to do so. Nevertheless, the dream was a test from Allah, and He sent down a ram from heaven to be sacrificed in Isma’il’s (as) location.
By sacrificing an animal annually, we are confirming that we want to concede whatever Allah asks people and to submit to Him entirely.
Qurbani will take place after the Eid prayer on Eid-ul-Adha, from 10th-12th Dhul Hijjah. Every year this date changes according to the Islamic calendar.
Any sacrifice made prior to the Eid prayer is counted as a Sadaqah, not as the mandatory Qurbani; if you do this, you must still perform the Qurbani after Eid prayer.
Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust takes limited Qurbani orders up until the chosen number has been reached and sacrifices the animals over the three days of Eid with full video evidence of the qurbani along with the dua. This year we will be doing 200 large animal sacrifices over 11 major cities in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir.
Qurbani holds huge rewards as this is something the Prophet (saw) did in person and urged his followers to do too.
Most people choose to give Qurbani donations in the days of Dhul Hijjah, yet some will give their Qurbani approximately a month before Eid. As Qurbanis in desired location have limited allocation, we advise that you provide your Qurbani as early as feasible.
The sacrifices will certainly be made after Eid namaz, over the 3 days of Eid.
KORT starts to work for this project 6-7 months prior to Qurbani in order to get the best animals to sacrifice. We travel up and down Azad Kashmir and Pakistan to look for animals in good health and to come up with a great deal with the farmers. We the arrange logistics for the animals to be dropped of in the most needed areas. KORT organize for the butchers to be present on the days and will be fully monitored by our staff and volunteers. Once the animal has been sacrificed it is bagged up un tp 2kg bags and distributed.
Our local helpers and volunteers on the ground come from the areas we assist or liaise with the local councils. This makes them best placed to locate those most in requirement. Prior to Eid-ul-Adha, they are out in their neighbourhoods and local areas trying to find the households that will benefit most from your sacrifice.
So, rest assure that your qurbani will reach people that will benefit and appreciate your donation.
Enjoy this festival by saying thanks to Allah for His blessings and also for providing you the opportunity to carry out this wonderful Sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S). Do not forget your under-privileged Muslims who don’t have the ways to commemorate this blessed celebration.
