Ummah Charity International is now Al-Wahab Foundation
This Dhul-Hijjah, the Qurbani you offer can feed families struggling with poverty and affected by natural disasters. As the Muslim Ummah unites to follow the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) on Eid, join us to support and share joy with our brothers and sisters in need.
This Eid al-Adha, we’re targeting 58 locations across Pakistan, spanning Mehran Basti to Babu Bajtanni Goth. Here, some of Pakistan’s poorest people are struggling to survive after last year’s devastating floods and in the face of severe food poverty. They are depending on us for your Qurbani meat. By booking your Qurbani in good time, you can help ensure we reach as many people as possible.
Your Qurbani can relieve their hunger.
Every year with your Qurbani donations we ensure that people living in the most difficult conditions can benefit from your support. As global hunger continues to rise and the world is rocked by natural disasters, the number of people without adequate food to eat is staggering. Many families go weeks or months without meat, surviving only on basic staples.
This Dhul-Hijjah, your qurbani can feed communities in need. The meat you give is a gift that will bring longed-for relief from daily hunger – filling stomachs and hearts with your compassion and kindness.
What is Qurbani?
On Eid Al-Adha, millions of Muslims donate towards Qurbani animals for sacrifice, and their meat is given to the poor and needy. This act of worship echoed the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) when he was tested for his faith in Allah (SWT).
At Al-Wahab Foundation, we ensure that we follow Islamic practices and processes to deliver your Qurbani according to the Sunnah. Every year, Mufti Abdul Wahab personally visits Pakistan to ensure our Qurbani project is performed in accordance with the correct Islamic teachings. He distributes meat himself in the most vulnerable of areas.
The majority of scholars agree that Qurbani is a sunnah mu’akkadah (highly recommended) or wajib (obligatory) for every sane Muslim who can afford it. It is separate from Zakat or Sadaqah.
The animals that can be sacrificed as Qurbani are goats, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, buffalo) or camels. Animals that are offered must be healthy and free from disease. They must be cared for and treated with kindness and respect.
Qurbani is performed on the 10th, 11th and 12th of Dhul Hijjah. At AWF, we purchase livestock and transport them to poverty-stricken areas for sacrifice so that those most in need can benefit. We prioritise widows, female-headed households and orphaned children who would normally struggle with food poverty and are often alone without support.
Book your Qurbani now for Eid Al-Adha and share the blessings and celebration.
Qurbani, also known as Eid al-Adha or the Festival of Sacrifice, is an important Islamic holiday observed by Muslims worldwide. It commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God. Muslims perform the ritual slaughter of an animal (typically a goat, sheep, cow, or camel) during this time to honor Ibrahim’s sacrifice.
Qurbani is celebrated annually on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah. The dates may vary depending on the sighting of the moon and the lunar calendar.
Qurbani is obligatory for adult Muslims who meet specific criteria, including being of sound mind and possessing the nisab (minimum amount of wealth).
The animals commonly used for Qurbani are goats, sheep, cows, and camels. These animals must meet certain age and health criteria to be eligible for sacrifice.
Yes, Qurbani can be performed collectively, and it is often organized by communities or through Islamic charities. Many people prefer to participate in collective Qurbani initiatives to ensure that the meat is distributed to those in need.
The meat from the Qurbani animal is typically divided into three equal parts: one part for personal consumption, one part for relatives and friends, and one part for the less fortunate and needy individuals. It is encouraged to distribute the meat among those who are less privileged.

The slaughter should be performed by a skilled Muslim who follows the principles of Islamic slaughtering, including reciting the name of Allah at the time of sacrifice.
Yes, it is permissible to donate money to charitable organizations that conduct Qurbani on behalf of donors. This allows individuals to fulfill their obligation by supporting those in need who may not have the means to perform Qurbani themselves.
Non-Muslims are not obligated to perform Qurbani, as it is a religious obligation for Muslims.
When selecting an animal for Qurbani, it should meet certain criteria. The animal should be healthy, free from any disabilities or diseases that may render its meat unfit for consumption. Additionally, it should meet the minimum age requirement, which varies for different animals (e.g., one year for goats and sheep, two years for cows). It is also recommended to choose an animal that is well-fed and in good condition.
Yes, it is permissible for an individual to perform multiple Qurbanis, either by sacrificing multiple animals or by participating in collective Qurbani initiatives.
