Notes
  1. 1) Your khums due date is the first day you started your job or business. If you are retired or not in employment, then you can agree a khums due date with a representative of the marja'a, or calculate separate khums years for each profit that you make, from the date you made that profit.
  2. 2) The khums of commercial commodities and real estate(s) which are intended for trading, should be paid in accordance with their current market value, even if they were bought with profits which a year has elapsed on, unless the price at which they were bought is higher than the current value.
  3. 3) If the calculations show that the amount of khums due is negative as a result of sustenance debts, then the amount of the sustenance debt equivalent to the amount of khums due for the rest of the item is calculated and excluded.
  4. 4) If sustenance debts are fully repaid in the financial year, this amount is excluded from the profits.
  5. 5) Possessions which are not subject to khums are:
    1. a. Possessions owned through inheritance:
    2. i. Cash
    3. ii. Real Estate

Qurbani 2022

Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation can facilitate the preparation of Udhiyyas (Qurbanis) to distribute amongst the families of the orphaned children in Iraq and Afghanistan on the day of Eid Al-Adha. The price of each Udhiyya for this year is: £180 for a lamb (Iraq) £110 for a lamb (Afghanistan) £1000 for a calf (Iraq).

Please book your Qurbani with us by 3rd July 2022 to help feed the needy, orphaned, and isolated in two places that are most in need. All donations received after that date will be postponed to next year.

There’s a Need. We Respond.

 

Many families in Iraq and Afghanistan are struggling more than ever to put food on the table and your Qurbani could offer them the first and last meal containing meat this year.

In Iraq, more than 800,000 children were orphaned because of the war and 80% of these children continue to experience violence in their daily lives, while also handling the trauma of the war, the loss of their parents, and fighting starvation. In Afghanistan, the United Nations has estimated that a staggering “95% of people are going hungry.” That percentage rises to nearly 100% in households headed by women, including the country’s estimated 2 million widows.

Through distributing your Qurbani where it is more needed, Al-Ayn ensures that these orphaned children and their families receive a substantial meal to enjoy on Eid Al-Adha while commemorating the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (AS).

Choose a Quality Qurbani

 

“We have decreed the animal offerings for you among the rites of God. In them there are benefits for you. So, mention God’s name on them while they are lined up, then, once they collapse on their sides, you shall eat therefrom and feed the poor and the needy. Thus, did We subject them to you, so hopefully you may give thanks” (22:36).

Because we select your Qurbani meat in accordance with jurisprudential requirements at Al-Ayn, there is no space for compromise when it comes to its quality. Our Prophet (SAWW) gave the plumpest, healthiest animals, so we endeavour to sacrifice the best animals we can source.

Eid Gifts Initiative

Join us this Eid in ensuring each and every one of the orphaned children we support in Afghanistan and Ghana receives brand new Eid clothes and a toy, so they can celebrate like their peers.

£30 per child*

*Includes a set of clothes which varies by age, but may include full outdoor outfit, pyjamas, socks, shoes and under garments. In addition to a toy. Costs are approximate and vary by gender and age. All donations will go towards our Eid fund to cover the costs of Eid clothes and toys for all orphaned children Al-Ayn supports in Afghanistan and Ghana. Any excess will go towards supporting orphaned children with other needs.

The deadline for donating Eid clothes and toys is 3rd July 2022. All donations for Eid gifts received after this date will be allocated for clothing and toys during a later occasion.

Inspiration this Eid al Adha

The Hajj season is linked to Ibrahim (AS) and his story of submission. He demonstrated his devotion to Allah through his decision to sacrifice what he loves for the sake of his Creator. But the story of this sacrifice began long before, with his wife Lady Hajar.

The first test Hajar faced was when Ibrahim (AS) was commanded to leave her and her child in a land far away from their home. Ibrahim took Hajar and her child Isma’il to Mecca – the sacred site on which the Kaba would be built. But at the time, all Hajar could see was a scorching wasteland with no water and little shelter. ‘Then certainly Allah is sufficient for us. He will not abandon us,’ Hajar said when she realised this was Allah’s decree. With her baby’s life hanging in the balance, she put her trust in Allah and demonstrated a level of faith unimaginable for most mothers.

Qurbani FAQs

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani is an important Islamic practice that involves the sacrifice of a livestock animal on Eid Al-Adha. This is an act of faith dedicated to Allah (SWT) and serves as a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) willingness to sacrifice his own son when asked by God to do so in a dream.

As commanded by God, Prophet Ibrahim (AS) went to the top of Mount Arafat to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail (AS). At the final moment, Allah (SWT) miraculously moved his son to safety and replaced him with a sheep.

Is it compulsory to give Qurbani?

Qurbani is compulsory for everyone participating in Hajj during the month of Dhul Hijjah (the last month of the Islamic calendar); but it’s also greatly recommended for all Muslims.

Which animals can be sacrificed on Eid Al-Adha?

The animals that can be slaughtered for Qurbani are sheep, cattle, goats and camels. It is recommended that the animal is healthy, with no signs of malnourishment.

When should I donate towards Qurbani?

The sacrifice must be performed on Eid Al-Adha. This means you should donate your Qurbani before 3rd July 2022 in order to give us enough time to prepare and perform your sacrifice. All donations received after that date will be postponed to next year.
