In 2016 Imran Khan Cancer Appeal (IKCA) delivered your Qurbani to 16,100 destitute families for whom hunger is a daily reality. Our reach spanned undeprivileged settlements and communities in Bannu, Peshawar, Multan, Sialkot, Gujranwala, Karachi and Hyderabad. Through your Qurbani, IKCA was able to distribute 80,500 KGs of meat among some of Pakistan’s poorest and most desperate.
Every year, IKCA performs Qurbani on behalf of thousands of donors across the UK, US and Pakistan. This Eid ul-Adha, we’re preparing again to deliver your Qurbani to Pakistan’s most needy: widows, orphans and the elderly poor; children displaced by conflict or disasters; and families trying to re-build their lives in devastated areas.
These are people who often want for two square meals a day. Malnutrition is a reality they live with, and in most cases, Eid ul-Adha is the only time of year when they are able to eat meat. They’ll be relying on us again, this Eid. Please donate your Qurbani with us so that we won’t have to let them down.Book Your Qurbani Now
Qurbani with Confidence
Did you know that IKCA and SKMCH make no profit on carrying out your Qurbani? The price you pay covers the cost of your preferred Qurbani animal as well as all the hard work that goes into carrying out the sacrifice. These involve slaughtering, skinning, packaging (into 5-10 kg parcels), blast freezing, and transporting under controlled temperatures to different parts of the country. Find out more
At IKCA, we know how important it is to perform Qurbani correctly and according to the sunnah –practices of the Prophet Muhammad (pbhu). That’s why our staff in Pakistan are involved in monitoring the Qurbani process every step of the way: We check to make sure all animals are healthy and of the correct age; We count the animals to ensure the correct numbers are being slaughtered; And we are there when the meat is distributed to the needy.
At IKCA, we do not take the risk of working with cheaper slaughterhouses for fear that any part of this religious obligation is compromised. Your Qurbani is our responsibility. Once we receive your payment, the onus is on us to ensure it is performed correctly and distributed on your behalf. Find out about the Conditions of Qurbani
Remember, Qurbani donations are time sensitive and the last day that we are able to accept them is the day before Youm al-Arafah (the eve of Eid). This means we do not take Qurbani bookings on the day before Eid ul-Adha. When making your donation, please do so in advance and ensure you provide the names of those on whose behalf the sacrifice will be carried out. Donate online or by phone on: 01274 424 444 or 0500 786 101.
What is Qurbani?
It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches him.’ -The holy Qur’an 22:37
Qurbani is the religious practice of sacrificing livestock during Eid ul-Adha. It is wajib –necessary for every mature Muslim who is financially able to preform Qurbani. In the event that one is unable to carry out the sacrifice during Eid, or in the two days which follow, he/she is obliged to donate the value of a sacrificial animal.
Qurbani is a tradition that comes to us from the Prophet Ibrahim (as) and his son Ismail (as). It reminds us of the great sacrifice both were willing to make, their strength of faith, and of God’s favor and mercy upon the believers. Watch The Sacrifice of Ibrahim (as) – the Story of Qurbani
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that a believer who preforms Qurbani in sincerity will reap a reward for every hair of the animal he/she sacrifices. (Tirmidhi)Book Your Qurbani Now
