This year, we also have 3 additional options for you to gain even more rewards. These are Qurban for the Ummah, Eid Gifts for Children and Family Food Packs. Why Choose Your Qurban through MAA? QURBAN FAQ: Qs. What are the rules for Qurban livestock shares? 1 Sheep or Goat = 1 Qurban 1 Cow = 7 Qurban Shares (One Qurban is 1/7th of the share) Qs. What day will the Qurban be performed? Qurbani will take place on the first, second, and third days of Eid. It is advisable to donate your Qurban as soon as you can and no later than the third day of Eid [13th Dhul Hijjah] before Maghrib. Qs. Is there an admin fee included in the Qurban pricing? To ensure we continue to maintain the highest quality Qurban practices, a low admin fee is necessary to cover the cost of staff, slaughter, distribution and in case of Frozen/Canned Qurban for the packing and transportation. Qs. Can you provide more information about Fresh Qurban for Palestine, Uyghur and Syrian refugees? This year, we are offering a limited number of Fresh Qurban exclusively for Palestinians, Uyghur and Syrian refugees. The cost of $295 is higher than the other options due to the difficulty in performing Qurban in these areas and because of the ongoing conflict and crisis but imagine their joy when they receive your Qurban donation! Qs. How does the Canned Qurban work? The animals are sacrificed in Australia and the meat is cooked and canned in New Zealand. Each can contains around 425g of meat and approximately 16-17 cans equal 1 sheep/goat, after the deboning, cleaning and cooking is done. The Qurban cans are then transported and distributed to the needy. This makes it easy for beneficiaries to consume the food when they want, also making it the most viable solution for Syrian refugees in the camps. The amount of $175 for Ready-to-Eat Canned Qurban will include around 16-17 cans which is equivalent to 1 sheep/goat. Qs. How does the Frozen Qurban work? Frozen meat is cut into 6 pieces, and shipped in separate cartons to its intended destination via refrigerated containers. The beneficiaries will receive frozen meat. Qs. How do you select who to distribute the Qurban to? In every country that we conduct Qurban in, it is distributed to the most vulnerable people; this includes widows, orphans, the elderly, internally displaced persons, and the poor. Qs. Which countries will MAA be distributing Qurban in 2020? Fresh Qurban: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Tonga, Uganda, Vanuatu, Syrian refugees*, Palestinian refugees*, Uyghur refugees*. Crisis Zone Qurban (Canned & Frozen Qurban): Syrian and Palestinian refugees, and in Lebanon * Fresh Qurban for is $295 per order. ** List of countries can change depending on various factors. Qs. Can you give me more details about the new option called 'Qurban for the Ummah'? 'Qurban for the Ummah' is going further with your Qurban, and following the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). He used to give Qurbani on behalf of his family and also on behalf of the Ummah. This Qurban, why not follow the Sunnah and donate an additional Qurban for the Ummah, in addition to your own sacrifice? The extra sacrifice will mean more of our most needy brothers and sisters will enjoy a nutritious meal with fresh meat during Eid. Qs. How can we be sure that the Qurban is taking place as promised?
