The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said,”For every hair of the Qurbani you will receive a reward from Allah, and for every strand of its wool you will receive a reward.” (Tirmidhi)
Udhiya or Qurbani is a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s (as) obedience and devotion to Allah (swt). It is a religious obligation that must be met by sacrificing an animal during Eid-al-Adha. It takes place in the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, Dhul Hijjah, and the meat is distributed to the poor.
For many families, the gift of Udhiya could be the only time they are able to eat meat for the whole year.
Muslims For Humanity team brings to you a list of the most well known Muslim organizations, through which you can give your Udhiya.
Every Eid-al-Adha, Islamic Relief provides the best possible Qurbani meat to the world’s most vulnerable people and families.
