Your sacrifice will make the world of difference to those most in need, while fulfilling a spiritual obligation for you. Every Qurbani donation provides fresh, nutritious meat to some of the world’s most impoverished communities, many of whom will be eating meat for the first time all year.
For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (swt)” (Tirmidhi).
This year, we’re changing things up so together we can make an even bigger impact.
Instead of choosing specific countries, this year, you can donate towards a group of countries - Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Where Most Needed. That means together we can reach more people across more communities, making a bigger difference in the lives of those in need.
Last year, we helped 2.9 people across 19 countries. This year, we’re determined to do more. Donate now, and join us to be part of a bigger effort this Qurbani season.
To commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (as), our Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) would offer two Qurbanis – one for himself, and one on behalf of someone from his ummah who could not afford to do it themselves.
At Al Mustafa USA, we invite you to join us and revive this beautiful sunnah, making double the impact to those in need, and reaping double the rewards.
The additional Qurbani will mean that more impoverished communities be able to enjoy Eid, and also that more people will reap rewards of giving Qurbani because of you, and in turn giving you even greater reward.
Make this an Eid to remember, and make a bigger difference to those in need. Give an Eid gift that will uplift families and tackle poverty. Your gift will help ensure Eid is celebrated with the joy it should be, and that those living in poverty are not left behind.
You could give an Eid gift to an orphan; plant olive trees in Palestine to support Palestinian farmers, provide food to a family who would otherwise go hungry, or even provide clean and safe water for years to come.
These gifts will help give love, support, nourishment, hope, life and the chance for those in need to build their own sources of income
This Eid, share the blessings and joy of Eid with the most vulnerable around the world. Make this an Eid to remember, and give a gift that lasts.
The animals which are eligible for Qurbani are:
Sheep and goats which are at least one year in age (for one person’s Qurbani). Cows, buffalo or camels which are at least two years in age (for seven people’s Qurbani)
We provide fresh Qurbani meat in all countries as the animals are purchased and slaughtered locally.
Al Mustafa USA eligibility criteria require beneficiaries of the Qurbani project to be selected based on need. When selecting beneficiaries for the distribution, priority is given to the following:
A thorough assessment is carried out by our teams to objectively identify and prioritise those in need and to ensure we reach the most vulnerable without bias.
The quantity of meat is distributed to families based on the size of the family. Generally, a family of 1- 4 people will receive 4kg of meat, a family of 5-9 will get 6kg of meat and a family of more than 10 will receive 8kg.
No, this is not necessary as long as you have made the intention that you are giving this Qurbani on behalf of a certain person.
You can make payments right up until the middle of the third day after Eid (13th of Dhul-Hijjah) before Zohar salah. AMWT has already purchased the animals to be slaughtered.
Our Qurbani sacrifices are performed every year between the morning of Eid, the 10th Dhul Hijjah, and the sunset of the 13th day of Dhul-Hijjah in the UK.
Qurbani 2023 will happen on Eid Al-Adha, which falls on or around the 29th of June this year, depending on the sighting of the moon.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of Qurbani and the time restrictions related to it we are not able to provide each donor with individual feedback on their specific Qurbani.
We will however send you a receipt to confirm your Qurbani and a notification when all our Qurbanis have been completed.
If you have provided us with a name, our team will call the name out after the Dua at the time of the sacrifice. However, it is not necessary to give us a name as long as you have made the intention that you are giving this Qurbani on behalf of a certain person.
Unfortunately, we are not able to change the donation schedule for our ‘My ten days of Dhul Hijjah’ module, once it is set up by our donor.
