Eid al Adha & Qurbani Explained

When is Eid ul Adha?

Eid ul Adha is on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah, lasting till the 12th of Dhul Hijjah.

In 2023, depending on the lunar cycle, this Eid will most likely be on 29 June 2023, till the evening of 1 Jul 2023.

What is Qurbani/Udhiyya?

Both Qurbani and Udhiyya are used to refer to the ritual sacrifice performed during Eid ul Adha.

Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the globe sacrifice an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh)’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God.

In accordance to Shariah, at least one third of the meat from the animal must go to poor or vulnerable people. Traditionally, a Muslim would keep one third of the meat for their family and give the final third to their neighbours, friends and family.

How much is Qurbani in Palestine?

In 2023, it will cost £350 for Qurbani performed in Palestine, or £105 for Qurbani performed elsewhere and then delivered to Palestine.

Whichever option you choose, struggling Palestinian families will benefit from your generosity.

Is Qurbani in Palestine expensive?

Carrying out Qurbani in Palestine might be more expensive compared to other countries, due to lack of livestock, access to adequate grazing lands and other farming infrastructure.

But while it may seem expensive to other countries, dive into the profound impact that your Qurbani has on Palestine here.

Is Qurbani compulsory for me?

The general rule is that Qurbani should be performed by adults of sane mind and affordable means. Some Islamic Schools of Thought class the act as wajib (obligatory), while others say it is a sunnah (optional).

However, it is generally agreed that if a person can afford Qurbani, they should perform it.

How many Qurbanis do I need to do?

Qurbani animals have ‘shares’. Sheep and goats have one share each, camels and cattle each have seven shares.

So for a single person, Qurbani is fulfilled with a sheep or a goat.

Up to seven people can share in the purchase of a cow or a camel, and the sacrifice will be made for the seven.

1 small animal (Sheep or Goat) = 1 Qurbani1 large animal (Cattle) = 7 Qurbanis

What is the significance of Qurbani?

The practice of Qurbani can be traced back to the Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh).

The Prophet had dreamed that God ordered him to sacrifice his only son, Ismail. In his devotion to God, Ibrahim agreed to follow his dream and perform the sacrifice. Prophet Ibrahim told his son about the dream, and Ismail himself was ready and willing to be sacrificed.

But before anything happened, God intervened and sent a sheep/ram to be sacrificed in Ismail’s place.

Ismail was spared because Ibrahim proved he would sacrifice his son as an act of piety, despite the loss it would have caused him. The continued practice of sacrifice acts as a reminder of Ibrahim’s obedience to God.

The month of Dhul Hijjah is an especially holy time and good deeds have extra reward during the first ten days of the month. Eid is the 10th Day of the month.

What is Eid Al Adha?

Eid Al Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice, is celebrated during the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar, also known as Dhul Hijjah.

It is enjoined upon every Muslim who has the financial means to perform Qurbani to commemorate the sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim (as) was prepared to carry out in the name of Allah (swt). Animals that can be sacrificed are goats, cows and camels. This occurs during the days of Eid Al Adha and people celebrate the meaning and completion of this action.

What is the difference between Qurbani and Udhiyyah?

There is no difference between the two terms. Udhiyyah is an Arabic word meaning “blood sacrifice”, and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word “Qurban” which literally means an act performed to seek Allah’s pleasure.

Qurbani is far more popular among the Muslims of UK, but Udhiyyah is also used commonly.

When should you do Qurbani?

The days of Qurbani are the 10-12th of Dhul Hijjah. Performing Qurbani on the first day is better than the second and the second better than the last.

In towns, cities and villages where Jumaah (Friday prayers) and Eid prayers are performed, Qurbani is not permissible before the Eid salah.

You can order your Qurbani with us anytime before Eid Al Adha, up till the second day of Eid. Interpal will ensure your Qurbani is performed on Eid Day itself (and before the end of the third day for late orders).
