As the holy month of Dhul Hijjah approaches, Muslims all around the world prepare for the annual celebration of Eid al-Adha, a commemoration of the Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah. One of the most significant rituals of Eid al-Adha is the act of Qurbani, or sacrifice, in which Muslims offer an animal, such as a goat or a sheep, to Allah as a symbol of their devotion and gratitude. This act of Qurbani also serves as a means to share the blessings of Allah with those in need, particularly the poor and disadvantaged.
In Luni, Sibi, Balochistan Pakistan, a dedicated team of individuals has established an online Qurbani shop, offering online Qurbani services to Muslims in Cambridge, United Kingdom, and beyond. The Qurbani shop is committed to ensuring that the Qurbani sacrifice is performed with the utmost care and in accordance with Islamic guidelines, providing donors with the opportunity to donate their Qurbani to the poorest people of Balochistan Pakistan.
One of the unique features of the Qurbani shop is its focus on supporting local farmers and communities. Rather than purchasing animals from large-scale commercial farms, the Qurbani shop sources its animals from local farmers and pastoralists, providing them with a much-needed source of income and supporting their livelihoods. The Qurbani shop also ensures that the animals are treated with respect and care, ensuring that they are healthy and well-fed before the sacrifice is performed.
Once the Qurbani sacrifice has been completed, the Qurbani shop workers distribute the meat to the poorest people of Balochistan Pakistan, ensuring that it reaches those who are most in need. The Qurbani shop provides visual proof of the sacrifice and distribution, sharing photos and videos with donors to give them peace of mind that their donation has been used in the most effective way possible.
In addition to Qurbani services, the Qurbani shop also offers other services, such as Aqiqah, Sadqa, Fitr, and Khirat, providing donors with the opportunity to give back to their communities in meaningful ways. Aqiqah, for example, involves the sacrifice of an animal to celebrate the birth of a child, while Sadqa, Fitr, and Khirat involve giving to those in need in various forms.
