Qurbani Project 2018

Eid-ul-Adha is the most sacred festival of Muslims which enables the poor and needy Muslims to equally become part of the happiness of the community.

Every year Jamia Islamia Ishaatul Uloom, Akkalkuwa- Maharashtra, India,  arranges Qurbani to ensure that healthy and safe meat reaches to the most vulnerable segment of the society.

Qurbani (Adhahi) is the sacrifice of an animal performed during the days of Eid al-Adha.

Importance of Qurbani:

Allah SWT Said in Glorious Quran:

لَنْ يَنَالَ اللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلَا دِمَاؤُهَا وَلَٰكِنْ يَنَالُهُ التَّقْوَىٰ مِنْكُمْ ... (الحج :37)

 “It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him.” (Qur’an 22:37)

So turn in prayer towards your Lord and sacrifice (animals). (108.2)

The Prophet (SAWS) said:

“Whoever has the capacity to sacrifice and does not do so, should not come to the place where Eid prayer is offered.” (Ibn Majah)

There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of judgment with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart. (Tirmizi, Ibne Majah)

The Prophet Muhammad (saw) was once asked by his Companions: (ra), “O Rasoolullah!(saw) What is Qurbani?” He replied, “It is the sunnah of your father lbraheem (as).” They asked again, “What benefit do we get from it?” He answered, “A reward for every hair (of the sacrificed animal).” “And (what reward is there for animals with) wool, 0 Rasoolullah (saw)?” they asked. “A reward”, he said, “for every fibre of the wool.”, (Ibne Majah)

When a person slaughters a Qurbani animal, he is forgiven at the fall of the first drop of blood, and verily, the animal shall be brought forward on the Day of Judgment with its blood, meat etc, and shall be increased in weight seventy times more than its own weight, and thereafter it will be placed on the scale of deeds. (Kanzul’Ummal)

On whom Qurbani (Adhazi) is Wajib?

Qurbani is wajib on every Muslim who is of sound mind, mature (who has reached the age of puberty), muqeem (i.e. he is not a Shar’ee traveler) and possesses the amount of fifty two and half totals of silver (612-36 grams) or wealth equivalent to that value which is in excess of one’s aslee (basic) needs. It is not necessary that this amount be in one’s possession for a complete lunar year. It’s possession during the three days of Qurbani will make Qurbani obligatory. Qurbani is not incumbent on a child or an insane person whether they own wealth equivalent to the amount above or not, nor is it wajib upon their guardians to perform it on their behalf. Similarly, it is not wajib on a Shar’ee traveler.

NOTE: A Shar’ee traveler is he who goes on a journey with an intention of  traveling forty eight miles or 77.2 km. He will be treated as a traveler as soon as he goes out of his town.

It is highly virtuous for one on whom Qurbani is not wajib to offer sacrifice for the Pleasure of Allah. He will be eligible for all the reward mentioned in the Ahadeeth.

During the days of Qurbani, sadaqah and charity cannot compensate for Qurbani nor fulfil the wajib. Qurbani is a unique ibadah. Just as Zakah cannot compensate for Hajj, or Sawm (Fasting) cannot compensate for Salaat, similarly charity cannot compensate for Qurbani. However, if the days of Qurbani had passed, and the Qurbani was not offered due to not knowing, negligence or for some other valid reason, then it becomes wajib to give in sadaqah the price of Qurbani animal or the animal itself to the poor.

If a traveler returned home or a person acquired the required wealth on the 12th of Zul Hijjah before sunset, it will be wajib upon him to perform Qurbani.

A traveler who makes intention of staying at a certain place for fifteen days or more, no longer remains a traveler. He must offer Qurbani if he possesses the prescribed amount.

Days of Qurbani

The days of Qurbani are the tenth, eleventh and twelfth of Zul Hijjah. The first day is better than the second, and the second better than the last.

Time for Qurbani

Qurbani is not permissible before the ‘Eid Salat. If the Qurbani has been offered before the ‘Eid Salat, it will have to be repeated. Therefore, the time for Qurbani commences after ‘Eid Salat on 1Oth Zul Hijjah until before sunset of 12th Zul Hijjah.

The Qurbani animal

It is permissible to offer in sacrifice a goat or she-goat, sheep of all kinds, buffalo or camel and all kinds of these animals.

It is necessary that the goat is one (full) year old, whether male or female. A buffalo will have to be two years old, and a camel five years. Animals that are younger are not suitable for Qurbani.

A sheep (of any kind) not less than six months old, so strong and fat that it appears to be one year old will suffice for Qurbani, otherwise it will have to be one (full) year old.

A buffalo or camel will suffice for seven persons provided no one’s share is less than one seventh and the niyyah (intention) of all partners is to attain thawab (for Qurbani), and not merely to obtain meat.

The Qurbani of only one person can be performed from a goat, sheep.

Animals that are castrated can be used for Qurbani. In fact this type of animal is preferable.

The following cannot be used for Qurbani

Animals that are blind, one-eyed or has lost one-third or more of its eyesight.

Animals that have lost 1/3 of the ear or the tail. Similarly, the animal which has no ear from its very birth.

Animal whose horn has been broken off from the root.

Animal which has one leg lame to the extent that it walks on three legs only and is unable to use the fourth leg.

Animal so lean and thin that its bones have no marrow.

Animal so weak that it cannot walk to the place of slaughtering on its own.

Animal completely toothless or one that has lost most of its teeth.

It is virtuous to purchase the animal for Qurbani a few days prior to slaughtering and care must be taken in feeding and nursing it.

Masnoon method of Sacrifice

It is more virtuous to slaughter the animal with one’s own hands. If one does not know how to slaughter, it is preferred that he remain present while someone else is sacrificing the animal. It is not necessary to make the niyyah (intention) of Qurbani with the tongue, however it is necessary to say Bismillahi Allahu Akbar when slaughtering.

Use a sharp knife and slaughter the animal quickly so that it does not suffer.

Do not sharpen the knife in front of the animal.

After slaughtering, do not skin the animal before it becomes completely cold.

Do not slaughter one animal in the presence of another.

It is mustahab (desirable) for one who intends to perform Qurbani to refrain from cutting hair or clipping nails from 1st Zul Hijjah to 10th Zul Hijjah, (i.e. until after Qurbani).

The Qurbani meat and skin

It is permissible to eat the Qurbani meat.

It can also be distributed to relatives and friends whether wealthy or poor, Muslims or non-Muslims.

It is better to divide it into three parts. One for the family, one for relatives and friends and one for the poor and needy.

The skin of the Qurbani animal can be kept for personal use, e.g. using it as a prayer-mat, water bag, etc.

If the skin of the Qurbani animal is sold, then it is wajib to give that amount in sadaqah to the poor (i.e. those who are eligible for Zakah).

It is not permissible to give meat, fat, etc. of the sacrificed animal to the butcher as his wages.

The meat of the animal slaughtered by partners should be shared by weight and not by estimation.

The rope, cover, etc. of the animal should be given away as sadaqah.

Qurbani on behalf of deceased

If one has been favored by Allah with wealth, then he should also perform Qurbani on behalf of Rasoolullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), his Sahabah, his Ummah, the Prophets and for his own living or deceased relatives, friends and teachers who have conveyed Deeni knowledge.

One should always remember and never overlook our beloved Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and perform Qurbani on his behalf. Aboo Talhah ( radhiyallahu anhu) has narreted that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) sacrificed one ram and while sacrificing the other he said, “This is on behalf of every one of my Ummah who believed in me and testified (to my prophethood).” (Tabrani)

It is a matter for deep thought and consideration that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam ) kept his Ummah in his mind while offering the sacrifice and it is deplorable for the Ummah not to remember him at the time of Qurbani.

Respected Donors, supporters & Well-wishers,

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

Eid Greetings from Jamia Islamia Ishatul Uloom,

I would like to thank you for your generous support in Qurbani project 2018.

There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart.

The Prophet (SAWS) said:

“Whoever has the capacity to sacrifice and does not do so, should not come to the place where Eid prayer is offered.” (Ibn Majah)

For India’s poorest, hunger is a common aspect of daily life. They are forced to get by on so little. It’s no wonder then, that meat is not a part of their regular food intake. But with your support, we were able to alleviate that this Eid.

Alhamdulillah! Jamia Islamia Ishatul Uloom has launched Qurbani project, first time, on its website WWW.JIIUCHARITY.ORG, to provide more opportunities to the donors and well wishers, performing Qurbani and sharing happiness with poor and deprived people who are not able to perform Qurbani and purchase meat on the occasion of Eid.    

On behalf of you, Jamia Islamia Ishaatul Uloom, Akkalkuwa, has been successfully completed Qurbani Project 2018, performed the sacrifices (Qurbani) of small and big animals and distributed Meat Kits among poor, food insecure families, teachers, Islamic scholars, and also feed Madrasa students in Akkalkuwa, Nandurbar, M.S, India.

The project also supported local economy, farmers and also contributed in UN Sustainable Development Goal “Zero Hunger”, National Nutrition Mission & Food Security schemes.

Jamia appeals to those who are secure in food to join hands with Jamia for such project in changing the lives of people and eradicating hunger and malnutrition from India.

Thank you once again, for your contribution and understanding the need of Ummah.

May Allah Almighty accept your Qurbani and bless you and your families for Qurbani and grant a place in Jannah.
