"... and take a provision (with you) for the journey (to Hajj), but the best of provisions is right conduct. So fear Me, o ye that are wise. " Qur'an 2:197
Inspiration of the Prophet SAWS

Qurbani (udhiya / udhiyah / udhia / qurban) is a sacrifice that is offered at the time of Eid al-Adha to show gratitude towards Allah SWT and to provide for the poor and needy. The Prophet Muhammad SWT was once asked by his Companions: "O Prophet of Allah! What is this qurbani?" He replied, "It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim SWT." (Hadith - Ibn Majah)

Allah SWT says in the Qur'an: "It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him." (Qur'an 22:37)

Qurbani has been performed from the time of Ibrahim SWT and commemorates also Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son, who was replaced by an animal at the time of sacrifice.

How does the Udhiya/Qurbani program work?

Ideally the meat from the Qurbani sacrifice should be shared between one's own family, friends and the poor. It is very difficult to perform a Qurbani sacrifice in most western countries, and there are also relatively fewer poor people that can accept raw meet as charity, so it is permissible to pay for a sacrifice to be performed on one's behalf in another country, and for all the meat to be distributed to the poor.

The Qurbani sacrifice through IslamiCity is performed according to islamically prescribed methods in a country of your choosing (or where most needed) and the meat is distributed to the poor and needy.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the symbols from Allah. In them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment, and such as beg with due humility: thus have We made animals subject to you, that ye may be grateful. It is not their meat nor their blood, that reaches Allah. it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you, that ye may glorify Allah for His Guidance to you and proclaim the good news to all who do right. (22:36-37)
