A Sacred Sacrifice

During this sacred sacrifice make a lasting difference

The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, the most sacred days of the year, are deeply loved by Allah (SWT). This period is a special time for all Muslims, offering unparalleled opportunities for worship and acts of charity.

Thousands of families in Lebanon and Jordan face shocking levels of poverty, grappling with food insecurity, debt, and health issues. Refugees, often the most vulnerable, are in desperate need of assistance. You can bring ease and joy to our forgotten brothers and sisters during this holy time. Donate now to provide meat parcels and sadaqah to families in need. The days of sacrifice are upon us—seize this opportunity to reap immense rewards in the hereafter, Insha’Allah!

This special time brings extra blessings to those who perform good deeds. Please remember our brothers and sisters and help provide them with security and comfort during Eid. Your generosity can be expressed through various contributions: Eid gifts for children can be given for £20, providing them with joy and celebration during this special time. You can also donate £42 for Eid clothes, ensuring families have new attire to mark the festive occasion.


At UKC4C, we are dedicated to ensuring that your qurbani is performed with the utmost care and reverence. We provide fresh qurbani, where animals are purchased and slaughtered locally, ensuring that the meat is distributed fresh to those in need. Additionally, in countries like Lebanon and Jordan, where fresh qurbani is significantly more expensive, we offer a chilled qurbani option. Here, animals are slaughtered in India and shipped ready for distribution from the third day of Eid onwards. This method allows us to provide a cost-effective alternative without compromising on quality.

For those wanting to perform qurbani, a small qurbani sheep or goat can be donated for £250. If you wish to contribute more significantly, a big qurbani calf is available for £1458, or you can donate a share of a big qurbani (1/7) for £208. Our chilled qurbani is available for £104. Additionally, a 2KG meat parcel can be donated for £20, providing essential nourishment to families.

Your generosity during these blessed days can transform lives. Join us in this sacred sacrifice and make a lasting difference.

Got questions? We've got answers

What is qurbani?

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

What type of animals can be slaughtered for Qurbani?

Small animal is usually a goat or sheep. Large animal is a cow

How Does Qurbani Work?

Those who are eligible to give Qurbani must either sacrifice an animal or make a donation equivalent to the value of a sacrificial animal on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah (after special Eid prayers). Monetary Qurbani donations go towards purchasing/rearing animals that can be sacrificed in poor communities so that everyone can enjoy a nutritious meal and the Eid al-Adha celebrations.

When Does Qurbani Start?

Qurbani falls on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, and sacrifices can only be made at this time after the Eid prayer takes place at the start of Eid al-Adha. Sacrifices that are made prior to the Eid prayer are not considered Qurbani and must be made again after the special Eid prayer.

Who is Qurbani Compulsory For?

Qurbani is expected by every non-disabled Muslim who has reached the age of puberty and for everyone that meets the rules of Zakat.

There are different schools of thought on who Qurbani is Wajib for, and you should speak to your local Imam for confirmation. Qurbani provides families in need with necessary food for the celebration of Eid, and your donation, if you are able and eligible to make one, is gratefully received

What types of qurbani meat does UKCARE provide?

UK CARE primarily distributes:

Fresh qurbani –animals are purchased and slaughtered locally.

Chilled qurbani – in countries such as Lebanon and Jordan where fresh qurbani is significantly more expensive, animals are slaughtered in India and shipped ready for distribution from the third day of Eid onwards. This enables us to offer a much more cost-effective alternative, without compromising on quality.

Should I Avoid Cutting my Nails and Hair if I’m Giving Qurbani?

When following Qurbani Eid rules, cutting hair and nails isn’t permitted from the start of Dhul Hijjah up until the sacrifice has been made, as per the words of the Prophet (SAW).

“When you see the new moon of Dhul Hijjah and one of you desires that he offer a sacrifice, then let him keep his hair and nails.”

Can I pay for Qurbani with my Zakat?

No, Qurbani should not be paid from Zakat.

Can a Qurbani be made on behalf of another person?

Absolutely! You may give Qurbani on behalf of someone else, including a deceased Muslim. You can also give Qurbani in the name of The Prophet (ﷺ) or his family members. However, this must be done in addition to your own Qurbani.
