UK Qurbani

The Programme

"I am a single mother of three children, all under the age of 10 years. This Qurbani meat has helped me provide wholesome food for my children who eat less meat due to it being expensive."
Umm Omar, London

In 2014, Muslim Aid launched its first ever UK Qurbani distribution for poor and disadvantaged communities nationwide. Despite the UK being the world’s sixth largest economy, 1 in 5 live below the official poverty line. For many, basic foods are too expensive to buy, especially meat. Muslim Aid’s UK Qurbani gives donors the opportunity to donate money to have a lamb slaughtered and a third of the meat, as prescribed in Islam, given to the poor. The remaining two third’s, are given to the donor to share amongst themselves, family and friends.

Last year we reached many single parent families, the homeless, and women fleeing from domestic violence amongst others, who otherwise are unable to include meat as part of their weekly diet.

"Alhamdulillah I am very grateful to the team of Muslim Aid for the donation of the Qurbani meat which was such a blessing and much appreciated by me and my daughter…it also came to us at a moment when we couldn’t afford to buy any meat due to my present financial situation, it will last us for a while Insha’Allah. May Allah (swt) bless you all."
Nushrat, Scotland

Important information about UK Qurbani:

  • The Donor of a UK Qurbani must note that the address they register their payment with will be the address the delivery will be made to.

  • 2/3rds of the meat go to the donor and 1/3 is given to a UK beneficiary.

  • The meat will be delivered on the 14th and 15th of September 2016.

  • Kindly note, it is the donors responsibility to ensure someone is home to accept the delivery.  Unfortunately, due to logistics, we are unable ensure a delivery time. However, if the donor informs us of a contact number, we will endeavor to contact the courier to notify you of a delivery time. However this is not guaranteed as the courier is an independent service and we therefore have no control of delivery times.
