Qurbani FAQs

Human Relief Foundation has been entrusted by thousands of people for over 25 years in performing Qurbani.

Human Relief Foundation has been entrusted by thousands of people for over 25 years in performing Qurbani.

Please find below Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), which aim to answer many questions about Qurbani, who is eligible to pay, and how we carry out Qurbani to make sure it reaches the most needy.

  1. Who needs to perform Qurbani?

According to most Muslims, Qurbani is required upon every sane male/female who is able to afford its cost. Normally those who are eligible to pay Zakat have to give a Qurbani.

  1. How is Qurbani performed at Human Relief Foundation?

Our field offices purchase animals from local suppliers and make sure that the animals are fit for the Qurbani before carrying out the Qurbani.

All animals are treated with mercy and are sacrificed according to Islamic principles.

  1. What types of Qurbani meat does Human Relief Foundation provide?

HRF provides cow, sheep and goat meat.

HRF does not distribute canned meat, but fresh meat. In some war-torn areas, we distribute frozen meat if needed.

  1. How does Human Relief Foundation decide who is the most needy when distributing Qurbani meat?

HRF and its field offices assess the situations and those who are most in need.

Qurbani is then distributed accordingly. We also work in war-torn areas for refugees and internally displaced persons, and hereby try to brighten their lives.

  1. Some prices are higher than others, why is that?

Human Relief Foundation performs Qurbani at the best possible standard and aims to sacrifice the animals that have more meat and in good health.

Animals are sourced locally and pricing differs from country to country.

In many cases, meat is also required to be transported to hard-to-reach areas, and this incurs higher transportation costs which affects the Qurbani price. In many of these areas, Human Relief Foundation is the only charity that has access inside.

Implementation and logistic charges are necessary in order to perform the Qurbani as it covers the cost of transportation, slaughtering, packing and distribution, documentation, hire of staff as well as organisational support costs.

  1. When should we give for Qurbani?

It is recommended to give Qurbani as early as possible.

The time for performing the sacrifice begins after the Eid prayer on Eid al-Adha and ends when the sun sets on the 13th of Dhu’l-Hijjah. So there are four days of sacrifice: the day of Eid al-Adha and the three days after it.

  1. Do I have to perform Qurbani on behalf of my children?

This depends on the school of thought that you follow. Please consult your local imam/sheikh.

Qurbani is obligatory on:

  • every sane, mature adult (one who has reached puberty) Muslim
  • who is not a traveller
  • who owns wealth and can afford its cost mainly has Zakat according to the nisab

It is one Qurbani or one share of Qurbani (i.e. cows 7 share and camels 7 share), performed on behalf of the whole household.
