WHAT IS QURBAN (Udhiyah)?

3V9A4625

The month of Dhul-Hijjah in the Islamic calendar is the month of sacrifice, during which worship and good deeds are amplified, particularly in the first ten days. This specific period is special, one which Allah SWT the Almighty has sworn an oath by; “By the dawn; by the ten nights” (al-Fajr 89:1-2), and has been prescribed in the Sunnah of His Messenger (PBUH) many times.

During Eid al-Adha – which follows the ten days and translates to ‘Festival of Sacrifice’- Muslims around the world sacrifice a Qurban (Udhiyah); usually a goat, sheep, cow or camel. This is to reflect on the submission of Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) when he was commanded by Allah SWT to sacrifice his son, Ismail (PBUH), but was rewarded for his obedience with a ram sent down to sacrifice instead.

The Qurban sacrifice is one of the great rituals of Islam, a confirmed Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) upon every household. It is a noble act of charity, one which strives to provide nourishment and relief to those in need.

For over three decades, Human Appeal Australia has dedicated all available avenues and resources to provide humanitarian relief to communities in need both local and overseas. A recent surge in mass starvation due to conflict overseas has brought upon unprecedented levels of food insecurity and an urgent need for nutritional aid and relief.

As we launch our Qurban Campaign for 2024, we call upon the community to fulfil this religious duty and contribute towards providing food resources to disadvantaged families across 32 destinations all over the world. We could not do this without your generosity.

Fulfilling the Qurban is an act of selfless worship on your part and a beacon of hope for those in need.

Join us on our mission to share the blessings of Eid al-Adha.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to do Qurban?

Qurban is a confirmed Sunnah and deemed obligatory upon all Muslims who are eligible. It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said; “Whoever can afford it, but does not offer a sacrifice, let him not come near our prayer place” (Ibn Majah).

Do I have to sacrifice the Qurban myself?

No. You may delegate it to an individual or organisation to sacrifice your Qurban on your behalf.

How many Qurban should I do?

Each household must commit at least ONE Qurban, preferably on Eid al-Adha as mentioned in the hadith that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “The greatest of days before Allah is the Day of Sacrifice” (Sahih Abu Dawud).  The head of a family may offer the sacrifice on behalf of other members in the house.

Can I do more than one Qurban?

Yes. Despite one Qurban being sufficient to fulfil this obligation, there is no limit to how many should be sacrificed.

When must I pay my Qurban?

Although it is best to do so as soon as possible, Qurban must be fulfilled by the last day of Eid al-Adha. Human Appeal Australia processes Qurban donations for the entire 4 days of Eid, allowing you the chance to fulfil it on time.

Which animals can be considered Qurban?

Qurban animals are usually sheep, goats, cows or camels.

Can I send my Qurban to someone I know?

Yes. HAA provides this service in two countries: Lebanon and Jordan. You will need to contact the Human Appeal office to provide the beneficiary’s details such as name, number, city & suburb.

Is the Qurban sacrificed fresh on-site or in a different country?

Where it is viable, livestock is purchased and sacrificed in the destination country. This allows the poor and needy to enjoy fresh, local meat on the days of Eid Al-Adha. Alternatively, livestock are sacrificed in Australia and other countries before being sent and distributed either canned or hard-frozen depending on circumstances of the region.

What is Canned Qurban?

Canned Qurban is pre-cooked meat, prepared and ready for immediate consumption. It has a long shelf life which is a strategic option for regions where resources are limited and there are no refrigeration facilities, such as refugee camps. This allows us to reach as many people as possible for them to enjoy your Qurban sacrifice.

What is Hard Frozen Qurban?

Hard Frozen Qurbans are cut into 6 pieces and individually wrapped. Each Qurban is shipped in a separate carton to its intended destination via refrigerated containers.
