Qurbani

More than a sacrifice — this is an ideal framework to feed millions of hungry children and families. Don’t forget Yemen this Qurbani season.

Did you know that nearly 80 percent of Yemen’s population is desperately in need of nourishing food? This is why your Qurbani/Udhiyah plays an important role during the Qurbani/Udhiyah season, ensuring that those in need have a nutritious and nourishing meal throughout the days of Eid-ul-Adha.

Eid-ul-Adha

Muslims celebrate Eid-ul-Adha to honor Prophet Ibrahim (A.S)’s willingness to sacrifice his own son for Allah’s sake. Ibrahim (A.S) submit himself to His Creator’s command as he faced the most difficult test a parent can face — the loss of their own child.

When Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) told his son Ismail (A.S) about the frightening dream he had of Allah commanding him to sacrifice him, Ismail (A.S) told his father, “Do as you are commanded.” Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) put his unwavering faith in Allah, and in return, the Almighty granted him infinite Mercy — He (swt) replaced Ismail (A.S) with an innocent sheep and the young boy was not harmed.

When Muslims fulfill their duty of Qurbani, they give one third of their Qurbani meat to those in most need.

It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah, but what does reach Him is the taqwā (the sense of obedience) on your part.”
– Qur’an, 22:37

20 million Yemenis are currently facing hunger, including nearly 2 million children who are at risk of starvation and malnutrition.

In crisis scenarios like these, your Qurbani/Udhiya becomes more than a religious obligation — rather, it is a beautiful way to feed thousands of families.
