Our 100% donation policy means every penny of your donation will support those in need.

Decades of conflict in Gaza has left millions of people living in severe poverty, without clean drinking water or enough food to eat. Devastating violence has meant countless people have had to flee their homes and are now living in temporary refugee camps in Gaza, desperately seeking safety and peace. Restrictions have led to the prices of basic items including food inflated, leaving many without access to essential nutrition.

For most Gazans, Eid will be just another day. Without the ability to buy meat, food or new clothes, the joy and celebration we should all experience will be missing. But it doesn’t need to be this way. You can give your Qurbani to a family in Gaza and help make their Eid bigger, happier and full of joy.

Donate £260 to give your Qurbani to a family in Gaza.

Prophet Ibrahim had a series of dreams where he was being commanded to sacrifice his only, beloved son, Ismail.

In his devotion to Allah (swt), Ibrahim agreed to follow his dream and perform the sacrifice. But God intervened and sent a ram to be sacrificed in Ismail's place.

Ismail (as) was spared because Ibrahim (as) proved he would sacrifice his son as an act of piety, despite the pain, loss and hardship it would have caused him. The continued practice of religious sacrifice acts as a reminder of Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah (swt).

Qurbani in Gaza, Palestine

While the Coronavirus pandemic has affected millions around the world, those who were already struggling from poverty and a lack of food, water and healthcare, have been among those hit the hardest. Covid-19 has left millions around the world hungry and unable to put food on their tables. The spread of Covid-19 in Gaza will be catastrophic, with millions of people living in over-populated temporary camps, having fled their homes from safety. Without clean water, enough food to eat and the ability to social distance, there is a huge threat for those in Gaza.

This Eid, your small sacrifice will truly make their big Eid! By giving just £260, you will spread joy and Eid spirit to those facing devastating hardships, while gaining countless rewards.

“For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)” - [Tirmidhi]

The Prophet () sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood’ (Tabarani and Ahmad) 

At SKT Welfare, we invite you to revive this beautiful sunnah.

Prophetic Qurbani

Qurbani with SKT Welfare

Last year, over 22,000 people received Qurbani meat as part of your small sacrifice. This year, we know that Qurbani is needed more than ever. You can give your Qurbani to those most in need and those in need in Pakistan, Syria, Gaza, Arica and Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

Your Qurbani goes further than just the families who receive the meat. We source all meat locally and employ staff to ensure the sacrifice and distribution is done to the highest standards. In this way, we create jobs and boost the local economy. We also donate all animal skins to local mosques and educational institutions who then sell them and use the funds to educate vulnerable children.

We take the utmost care to strictly follow Sharia in order to procure the meat for Qurbani by ensuring:

•                A healthy animal is sacrificed

•                The animal is older than one year in age

•                The meat is of a good quality that has not been stunned in the slaughter process and is safe for human consumption.

•                The Qurbani is performed after Eid prayer

Our fresh Qurbani meat is distributed on the same day to the people in need and the quantity of meat is sufficient for a family of five.

What is Qurbani?

“Once our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was asked, what is Qurbani? The Prophet (SAW) answered: ‘It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)” - Tirmidhi 

Qurbani is a religious sacrifice of sheep, cattle, or goats which is made after Eid al Adha prayers, between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar. The blessed tradition was passed down to us by our Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) reflecting on their ultimate devotion to Allah (swt) and the sacrifices they were willing to make.
