Asalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatullah,
The Islamic Month of Dhul Hijjah is quickly approaching. Every year, Ihsan Global Relief helps Muslims around the world to perform their Islamic Duty of Qurbani in parts of the world where those in need benefit from the goats and cows that are slaughtered to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim’s (a.s.) willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God.
This year, Ihsan Global Relief will be performing Qurbani in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The meat that are slaughtered will be used to feed those in remote parts of the world where poverty and hunger is a common reality. We will publish the prices for Qurbani 2013 in a short time. Meanwhile, please donate generously to help the poor and needy.
Alhamdulillah, last year your Qurbani helped feed many poor families. We hope that this year you will continue to support those families who would benefit greatly from your sacrifice.
Qurbani or Udhiyah is the animal sacrifice made by Muslims on the days of Eid al-Adha (The Festival of Sacrifice). Eid al-Adha is an annual festival that occurs at the end of the 12th and final month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Dhul al-Hijjah.
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.”
The Prophet (s.a.w) used to sacrifice two rams for his qurbani, one for himself and an EXTRA one for the needy of this ummah.
Abu Talhah (RA) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his ummah, one who bore witness to Tawhid and [my] Prophethood.
If possible, please make an extra Qurbani this year on behalf of the needy of this Ummah in the name of our beloved Prophet (SAW).
