There’s a Need. We Respond.

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

Iraq’s political and economic structures have been eroded by years of conflict, with poverty rates reaching 31.7% in 2020. 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.

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

Afghanistan’s population has also been facing the consequences of the global pandemic, flash floods that affected more than 15,000 people, flash floods that affected more than 15,300 people across 18 provinces, two years of severe drought and more than a decade of violence.

After identifying a strong need for help in these two countries, we have responded. Please book your Qurbani with us to help feed the needy, orphaned, and isolated in two places that are most in need.

Choose a Quality Qurbani

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.

“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). 

Qurbani FAQs

1. 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 our Maker to do so in a dream.

2. Is Qurbani obligatory? 

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

3. Which animals can be sacrificed on Eid ul Adha? 

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

4. When should I donate my Udhiyya? 

Udhiyya must be performed on Eid al-Adha. This means you should donate your Qurbani as soon as possible in order to give us enough time to prepare and perform your sacrifice.
