EAP Projects – Qurbani for Palestine – 2019

Eid Aladha Qurbani

Eid Aladha Qurbani (EAP)

The Prophet (saw) said: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (swt).”

What is Qurbani?

Qurbani or Udhiyah holds a special place in Islam. It is the religious sacrifice of an animal for the glorification of Allah between between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, in the final month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims sacrifice and honour the tradition of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) by sacrificing an animal and distributing the meat to those in need. Qurbani meat provides a healthy protein packed food resource to families enduring poverty in Palestine.

Why Qurbani for Palestine?

Food poverty in Palestine is on the rise including 2 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip who are food insecure. 1 in 2 people living in Gaza go to bed every night with an empty stomach. The suffering and the tragedy in Palestine is worsening day by day, and donations for Palestinians has lessened since the Muslim Ummah has been struggling. The demand for help is increasing. Qurbani for Palestine payments are absolutely essential in providing these vulnerable Palestinian families with nutritious food to support them and ease their hunger.

Meat is also a rare luxury in Palestine because of the high costs. This is why your support will help families have meat on Eid, which may be one of the few times a year they eat fresh meat! When families receive Qurbani meat, it fosters a real sense of hope for them and allows them to celebrate this important occasion along with millions of other Muslims across the world. This is an opportunity to bring joy to our suffering brothers and sisters in Palestine while simultaneously fulfilling our obligations to Allah SWT this Eid Al-Adha. Directing your Qurbani and Sadaqah to struggling Palestinian families can bring great rewards for you and so much happiness for them. Together, let’s spread the blessings of Eid to Palestine.

Why give Qurbani for Palestine with EAP?

Paying your Qurbani with EAP means that you can guarantee that all of your donation will reach those who need it most. We identify the families who would greatly benefit from a Qurbani parcel for Palestine, and ensure that they receive the meat before Eid ul-Adha. Those who receive the Qurbani meat include widowed women, orphaned children, refugees and poor, elderly or disabled people. For the majority of these people, meat is not part of their regular diet.For many people, this will be the only time of year that they can eat meat. Our goal is to enable as many of our students and needy families as possible to enjoy nutritious food on the festival of Eid.

Please contact EAP to fulfil your Qurbani obligations and reach out to our brothers and sisters during this blessed time. 

As we learn from our prophet Muhammad (Pbuh): whoever brings happiness to anyone, he will be rewarded Jannah. And when is it a better time to bring happiness to someone?
