Also known as the “festival of the sacrifice”, Eid al-Adha is sometimes known as Eid el Kabir. It’s the second Eid of the year and is considered to be the holier of the two as it falls straight after the completion of Hajj.
During Eid, an act of Qurbani must be done (which usually involves slaughtering an animal as a sacrifice in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s sacrifice to Allah). In lieu of slaughtering an animal (whether that be due to dietary requirements or simply out of choice), the best option is to donate Qurbani instead, to those who need it. These are the best charities to donate to this Eid.
Muslim Global Relief
With a three-tier donation guide, you can give Qurbani at three different price points that cover poverty-stricken communities from Rwanda to Palestine.
Hajjah Nazi Charity
With Lebanon in a state of crisis, Hajjah Nazi gives the option to donate Qurbani directly to refugees in Lebanon.
Interpal provides those in need with meat, food items, clothing and toys.
Emirates Red Crescent
This Dubai-based charity provides Qurbani for orphans and those in need, both in the UAE as well as abroad.
With 100 per cent of donations received going to families directly in Syria, SKT Welfare aims to provide one sheep for every family in need.
