Eid Mubarak!
Qurbani / Udhiyah: A Special Call to Action

This special program honors the story of our beloved prophets Ibrahim and Ismail (asws). And for us at IRUSA, it also is an important humanitarian call to action in the campaign against hunger.

IRUSA takes your gift of meat for Eid al-Adha, Sept. 12 – 15 in 2016, where it’s really needed—to people in need in 29 countries, including here in the United States. Staff at Islamic Relief offices around the world work hard right through Eid to deliver your gift even in hard-to-reach areas and conflict zones. For some, it’s the only meat they eat all year. Our brothers and sisters get the meat; and you’ll get the reward, insha’Allah.

Check out these Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about your Udhiyah/Qurbani giving.

About the Animals

The animals used are an’aam animals, such as sheep, goats, cows and buffalo. The animals must be healthy, free from blindness and chronic sickness or disease or from any apparent ailment, and must be of a fit age.

When you donate “1 Qurbani,” your donation equals one sheep or goat OR 1/7 of a cow, bull or buffalo—your donation can provide about 50 pounds (sheep/goat) to 70 pounds (cow/bull/buffalo) of fresh meat, which in turn feeds about 40 to 56 people respectively*. If you’d like to purchase an entire cow, for instance, you would multiply the price and the number of people served by 7. Here are the types of animals that were provided during the 2016 season.
