Qurban- How to Maximize your impact?

Written by Vinie Widiasari


It is that time of year again! The time of year where we, as Muslims, perform Qurban. We do this year after year but do we know why?

Qurban – What is it?


Qurban is an animal sacrifice performed to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) and his total obedience and submission to Allah when given a command. It celebrates his willingness to sacrifice everything to please the Almighty. Once the Qurban meat is sacrificed a portion of it must be kept for charity and the rest can be divided among family, relatives or for individual consumption. One can also distribute the entire meat for charity, this would be highly recommended. 
While there are still people who perform the Qurbani themselves, many of us don’t have the capabilities to do this on our own. This may be due to lack of access to animals, lack of opportunity due to travel or sickness or because of not knowing the proper steps to complete the sacrifice as per Islamic guidelines. It may even be illegal in your country, state or city to slaughter an animal without the use of an abattoir. Whatever the reason may be, this leaves many Muslims no choice but to donate their Qurban to a trusted organization. 

Donating Qurban:


Donating your Qurban means feeding more destitute and needy with your Qurban which, In sha Allah, means more rewards for your sacrifice! Secondly, if you do it with an organization like MAA, it also means you are trusting your Qurban to an organization that adheres to the strictest Islamic principles and guidelines related to Qurban. 
Did you know that MAA is the first and only Australian Government accredited Islamic charity, a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID), and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC)?

Also, as an ATO deductible gift recipient (DGR) all donations are 100% tax deductible. If you are planning to donate your Qurban, rest assured you are in the right place so go ahead with full confidence!
