Shares of the Qurbani

Are you ready for Eid ul-adha? On July 22nd the blessed month of Dhull hijjah will begin.
In this month, we’re encouraged to make the most of the first ten days as they are known to be the most blessed days in the Islamic calendar.

You can fast, read more Qur’an, give extra in charity or all the above. Usually, during these days pilgrims in Mecca begin their journey through the many steps taken to complete the Hajj, followed by Eid-al-adha.
Unfortunately, this year’s Hajj will look very different to previous years with only locals being able to attend due to the pandemic. With some countries still under strict lockdown measures, Eid-al-adha may also bare resemblance to the quiet Eid many of us experienced at the end of Ramadan.

Whether or not you attend Hajj or not, Qurbani is mandatory on every sound minded Muslim who is old enough to and financially able to.

Qurbani translates to sacrifice and the ritual of Qurbani directly reflect back to the story of the prophet Ibrahim (as) and the sacrifice he made, as well as some of the acts of the Hajj.
“In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. So, pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone].” ( Qur’an 108:2)
This year, International Waqf Fund is offering our donors a chance to contribute towards a Qurbani Waqf share.

How does a Qurbani Waqf Share work?

One Qurbani Waqf share costs £2000.

Your one-off donation will be invested into our low-risk investment fund. These typically accrue around 5-7% of returns.

A majority of these profits we will use towards a Qurbani next year and a portion will be re-invested back into our fund.

Each year your investment will help us feed more and more families, up to 15 people per Qurbani, building on your sadaqah jariyah.

Infinite Good

We will invest your Waqf share, in addition to implementing the Qurbani of the sacrifice on your behalf year on year. Moreover, it will be distributed in any of the countries where Islamic Relief has a presence.

However, we implement the Qurbani according to the Sharia with an average cost of (£55).
