How should I divide my Udhiyah/Qurbani?
1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3
1/3 stays with you and your family to be eaten
1/3 is gifted to your friends, neighbours and relatives
1/3 should be given as charity to the poor who reside amongst you
What do I need to do?
It's very easy...
Purchase or have your Udhiyah/Qurbani delivered to yourself and separate it in 1kg bags (freeze it if you prefer, to preserve freshness).
Bring it to Charity Begins At Home on days 2 and 3 of Eid 11am – 2pm and assist in distributing it to the people locally with your own hands, as per the Sunnah.
This is a Sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), peace be upon him.
It consists of 3 purposes:
- It shows that we as Muslims (ones who follow Islam) offer our very best in the way of our Lord, Creator and Provider.
- Udhiyah/Qurbani offers the Muslim the opportunity to value our families, friends, neighbours and the poor that reside in our localities.
- It creates humility in the heart of the believer, connecting them with their neighbours and creating self-evaluation and accountability.
