Praise be to the Almighty, all bookings for Qurbani were delivered successfully feeding thousands of needy people across Azad Kashmir. 210 cows were slaughtered as part of the annual ritual resulting in needy beneficiaries receiving 2kg of meat each to feed their family. Thank you to all our donors for entrusting your Qurbani to be carried out by KORT.
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]
Our Qurbani appeal was closed within 3 days of the launch of the appeal as our target number of animals was achieved. And because we work with a set number of animals, we encouraged our donors to provide the names that the Qurbani was to be done for so the names could be said at the time of slaughter and be captured in a video.
The summer heat posed its own challenges and our teams had to ensure that the meat was stored in refrigerated trucks before being distributed.
Our Qurbani project was carried out in over 20 different locations across Azad Kashmir to ensure the meat if provided to the neediest of families to enjoy.
The cost of the Qurbani animals is estimated a couple of months before purchasing the animals. Most of the time, this results in a better price at the time of buying the animals. Once the final costs are calculated, KORT informs all donors of the surplus amount of funds leftover from their Qurbani and offer a refund or provide the opportunity to donate the funds back to KORT.
We look forward to continue the Qurbani project next year so please remember to follow us on our Social Media Platforms to hear about the launch of the appeal as we will only have a limited number of bookings available before the appeal is closed.
We pray that the Almighty accepts our efforts in fulfilling the people’s sacrificial slaughter, and that it was carried out in a manner that conformed with the Shariah Law, and that He accepts the sacrifice of the entire Ummah. Ameen.
