Eid-ul-Adha is one of the two key festivals in Islam – the first one being Eid-ul-Fitr, which falls after the Holy month of Ramadan.
The second celebration of the year, Eid-ul-Adha, is also known as the bigger of the two Eid’s and occurs after the annual pilgrimage of Hajj, which is one of the obligatory five pillars of Islam. The festival, also known as Qurbani Eid, consists of sacrificing an animal in the name of Allah (SWT), to honour the devotion an willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) to sacrifice his son Hazrat Ismail (A.S) for the sake of Allah (SWT).
This sacrifice is known as the act of Qurbani and is performed annually by all able Muslim’s on the day of Eid-ul-Adha to commemorate this sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S).
Donate Your Qurbani with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust
Donating your Qurbani through a charity can ensure those around the world who do not have the means or nourishment to celebrate this occasion as comfortably as us, can do so with your contribution.
During the festival of Eid-ul-Adha, Muslims gather together and celebrate as one Ummah. Adults and children wear their finest clothes, recite Eid prayers in congregation, enjoy a feast with friends and family; children are often presented with gifts or money on this day, too.
Every year, Al Mustafa Welfare Trust strives hard to capitalise on seasonal events to distribute aid to help those around the world in less fortunate circumstances than us. The idea is to ensure that everyone is given an equal opportunity to celebrate Eid in the same way as the rest of the Ummah. On the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, we aim to distribute your Qurbani donations among refugees and those in need to provide them with sufficient nourishment to enable them to enjoy this auspicious occasion just as much as the rest of us.
Eid-ul-Adha 2018 is expected to fall on or around 21st August this year. To donate your Qurbani with Al Mustafa Welfare Trust this Eid-ul-Adha, see here.
