Qurbani refers to the religious sacrifice of sheep, goat and/or cattle between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.

It is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) and Ismail (peace be upon him) and their story of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (SWT).


Penny Appeal distributes sacrificed meat to the poor and needy in Africa and other countries, where families have no access to nutritious meat as a result of being food insecure. For many families, meat is considered a luxury, and seldom available to include in preparing food. A single Qurbani donation can provide 57 nutritious meals, and supply protein-filled meat for those that have limited access to it throughout the year. Your Qurbani is the reason so many families are able to benefit with a meat and food parcel.

How your Qurbani donations help those in poverty

Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. “Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.” (Surah Hajj:37)


Last year you helped us reach thousands of people with your Qurbani donations, Alhamdulillah!

This year, many families around the worlds are facing economic hardship, and find it extremely difficult to sustain regular food and nutrition on their tables. Your Qurbani donations could change that. Help provide vulnerable families with a delicious meal with your generous donations this Eid-ul-Adha.

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani is the religious sacrifice of sheep, goats & cattle between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar. It is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) and their story of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (SWT). Sacrificed meat is distributed among the poor and needy across the globe.

Who is Qurbani Compulsory for?

Qurbani holds a special place in Islam. It is stressed upon in the Qur’an and is a reminder of Prophet Ibrahim’s (as) devotion and obedience.

For many scholars, Qurbanis an obligation for all Muslims who possess the Zakat threshold. Despite this, its critical role within Islam is often missed, resulting in its tremendous barakah being lost.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (SWT)."

Where will my Qurbani be distributed?

We will be distributing qurbani meals to impoverished people across Africa and Middle East: specifically South Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Gaza and Yemen.

Thanks to all your donations last year, we were able to distribute Qurbani meals to hundreds of individuals. We also provided over 3000 families with Qurbani packs.
