Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. As such, it is compulsory on muslims, provided they meet certain conditions and criteria.
So please donate generously to help the less fortunate.
PRAIS EBE TO ALLAH
Inshallah Ramadaan comes and a person is unable to fast because he is elderly or sick with no hope of recovery, then he is not obliged to fast because he is unable to do so. So he should not fast and he should feed one poor person for each day. In the USA is $10.00 for each day.
Ramadan Food Package!!! Only $40 per package can feed a family of 5. Help us reach our goal for this Ramadan to feed 200 family inshallah. This is your opportunity to give small and make a big impact.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “A person is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.” (Bukhari)
Q: What is Qurbani? Qurbani, or Udhiyah in Arabic, means sacrifice. Every year Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, a sheep, a cow, or a camel – to reflect Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail for the sake of God. At least one-third of the meat from the animal must go to people who are poor or in vulnerable situations.
Q: Who is obliged to give Qurbani? Qurbani is mandatory for every Muslim who has reached the age of puberty, and who can afford it.
Q: How is a Qurbani volume decided? Is it a cow or a sheep? 1 sheep or goat = 1 Qurbani 1 cow = 7 Qurbanis (1 Qurbani – 1/7th of the share)
Q: What day will the Qurbani be performed? The slaughter will take place on one of the days of Eid. If you give a Qurbani on the second or third day of Eid, the Qurbani will still be carried out on one of the days of Eid, as Salmasadaqah has already purchased the animals to be slaughtered beforehand. Qurbanis are carried out on the basis of forecasts drawn. If necessary, modifications are made, and additional funds are transferred to the relevant country. In effect, donors are paying towards Qurbanis which are already allocated.
Q: When should we give money to Qurbani? It is advisable to give as early as possible. The time for offering the sacrifice begins after the Eid prayer on Eid-al-Adha and ends when the sun sets on the thirteenth of Dhu’l-Hijjah. So there are four days of sacrifice: the day of Eid-al-Adha and the three days after it. It is better to hasten to offer the sacrifice after the Eid prayer, as the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to do, then the first thing he would eat on the day of Eid would be meat from his sacrifice.
Q: What countries does Salmasadaqah deliver Qurbani? Uganda, Gambia, Senegal, Cameroon, Ghana, Nepal, Pakistan, Guyana, Chad Texas USA
Q: What can I expect from the Salmasadaqah organization that has been carrying out Qurbani since 2002? We make sure that the most vulnerable families are prioritized for Qurbani distribution, that families receive the best possible quality meat through our rigorous animal selection criteria, and that animals are transported and slaughtered humanely. By managing the whole transportation and logistics network and complying with Sharia, strict hygiene standards cover the handling, packing, and distribution of all meat.
Q: Why do Qurbani costs vary in each country/group? Wherever possible, Is Salmasadaqah will source a country’s own produce for its work. This is why prices vary at the local level. Buying from the local community will benefit the traders and farmers, as well as the local economy. Locally sourced produce is usually the cheapest way to carry out your Qurbani and it minimizes our carbon footprint. Your money goes further with the Salmasadaqah organization because we do not spend money on importing unless we cannot avoid it.
Q: Why do other charities charge different prices for Qurbani? Some charities may charge different prices to carry out your Qurbani because of a difference in suppliers, their project implementation methods, and their administration costs. The Salmasadaqah organization is one of the largest global organizations carrying out Qurbani. With 20 years of experience, we have developed an efficient, cost-effective, and reliable process that results in quality meat packs.
Q: How does Qurbani help people in the long run? Your Qurbani is a cherished treat that provides a family with food for a few days and offers them an important boost in nutrition but by itself, its impact is short-term. We want to help people lift themselves out of poverty for good, and so most of the people who receive Qurbani through Salmasadaqah are also benefitting from one of our other projects, such as education or sustainable livelihoods. This way of working means that Salmasadaqah already knows the individuals in the community and those who are most in need of your Qurbani. Most of the families eat meat only a few times a year, but it is also an uplifting gift that reminds them there are people around the world who are thinking about them during the festive period.
Salmasadaqah is accepting donations for udhiyah until one week before Eid ul-Adha. Donate $220 per sheep, $100 per share cow, and let everyone feel the gift of sharing through salmasadaqah.
