Qurbani 2023

Give your Qurbani from £14

You can help millions of people living in poverty to celebrate Eid ul-Adha with the rest of us, by giving as little as £14. Your Qurbani donations help provide quality meals to families in need.

Qurbani is the act of offering the sacrifice of an animal to Allah (SWT) on Eid ul-Adha and is one of the obligatory acts of Hajj, the fifth pillar of Islam.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“For every hair of the Qurbani, you will receive a reward from Allah (SWT)”.

– Tirmidhi

Offer your Qurbani

Being a mandatory act, there is much to know about the Qurbani rules.

Every year, to commemorate his sacrifice, every able-bodied Muslim is expected to provide a Qurbani donation in three shares: one to help those living in poverty, one to feed friends and family, and one to keep for themselves.

How we deliver your Qurbani

We understand the importance of quality sourcing from hard-working farmers and we work closely with our partners to ensure Qurbani animals are raised healthily and according to Qurbani rules. Our teams on the ground will ensure every needy family can enjoy a nutritious meal for this Qurbani Eid with their share of the Qurbani donation.

We use your donations to carefully select animals that are suitable for Qurbani and carry out the sacrifice on your behalf. We make sure that the Qurbani is done on the days of Eid and that the fresh meat is delivered as soon as possible so that the needy 
can enjoy the blessings of Eid.

A small animal counts as 1 share. A large animal counts as 7 shares.

Deadlines for Qurbani donations are subject to quotas filled.

Cheques, postal orders and bank transfers, with details of your Qurbani must be received by no later than Friday 16th June 2023. Personal details, including a contact number, should be provided.

When making a bank transfer, please include a reference, including an address or Donor ID. Please also email info@onenationuk.org or call us on 0300 500 1000 with the details of your donation. If no information is received within 2 working day of making the transfer, One Nation will receipt it according to the nearest Qurbani price. Otherwise the donation will be receipted as ‘Sadaqah.’

Upon placing the order and payment, a receipt and a Qurbani number will be assigned and issued to the customer/donor on behalf of whom the Qurbani is to be conducted.

If a large animal is selected on behalf of several (up to seven) donors intention should be made by all, however name and contact details of only one person needs to be provided at time of placing the order.

The amount per animal/share is rounded off to the nearest round figure taking into account fluctuating conversion rates and other costs. Any surplus amounts (if any) will be used for other Qurbani related expenses or another charitable cause. One Nation and its ground staff will act as the representatives on behalf of the donors in purchasing, specifying, conducting the Qurbani and then distributing the meat.

Moderate and healthy animals are purchased for Qurbani in light of the Shari’ah regarding defects and age restrictions.
The Qurbani will be carried out within the three days of Qurbani. The meat is cut and distributed by One Nation staff to families in deprived and poverty-stricken areas.

In the unlikely event of an unexpected issue arising in purchasing the animals or in conducting the Qurbani, One Nation will contact the donors before or on the days of Qurbani.

All efforts will be made to carry out Qurbanis in the selected country, however in the unlikely event of any issue arising, Qurbanis may be carried out in a similar price zone and any donor will be informed prior or after the Qurbani takes place.

The Qurbani skins and other non-consumable products will be gifted to the poor or may be sold to companies and the proceeds in such case will be used in a charitable cause by One Nation.

Closer to Eid, donors can check on the website when the Qurbani in their country is completed.


Small animal is usually a goat or sheep. Large animal is a cow or camel

Your Qurbani is accepted as long as the qurbani is after the Eid prayer in the country you donated towards.

Qurbani prices generally depend on the size and type of animal, which varies across the world. Sometimes prices within the same country can also change from location to location depending on the suppliers, implementation methods and other costs.

Those who are eligible to give Qurbani must either sacrifice an animal or make a donation equivalent to the value of a sacrificial animal on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah (after special Eid prayers). Monetary Qurbani donations go towards purchasing/rearing animals that can be sacrificed in poor communities so that everyone can enjoy a nutritious meal and the Eid al-Adha celebrations.

Traditionally, once an animal has been sacrificed, it is distributed in three ways: a portion is saved for the person who has made the Qurbani donation, a portion is given to the donor’s friends/family, and the final portion is given to the hungry and less fortunate. However, due to the regulations of some countries, many Muslims will donate to a charity like One Nation to carry out their Qurbani and all the shares are provided to the needy.

There are different schools of thought on whether and whom Qurbani is compulsory for, and you should speak to your local Imam for confirmation. Qurbani provides families in need with necessary food for the celebration of Eid, and your donation, if you are able and eligible to make one, is gratefully received.

Qurbani falls on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, and sacrifices can only be made at this time after the Eid prayer takes place at the start of Eid al-Adha. Sacrifices that are made prior to the Eid prayer are not considered Qurbani and must be made again after the special Eid prayer.

Yes, Qurbani is fard.

Qurbani is expected by every non-disabled Muslim who has reached the age of puberty and for everyone that meets the rules of Zakat.

There are different schools of thought on who Qurbani is Wajib for, and you should speak to your local Imam for confirmation. Qurbani provides families in need with necessary food for the celebration of Eid, and your donation, if you are able and eligible to make one, is gratefully received.

Every eligible Muslim should provide one share of Qurbani, and parents should provide a share in the name of their children. One small animal, such as a goat or sheep, is equivalent to one Qurbani share, while a larger animal, such as a cow or camel, is equal to seven shares and can be split between seven individuals. Qurbani rules for husbands and wives state that a husband does not need to give a share on behalf of his wife if she has her own money but can do so if they choose to.

Although traditionally, Qurbani shares are split into three; it’s common for shares to be given to those most in need and who do not have enough wealth or food to feed their family for a day. At One Nation, we distribute Qurbani donations to those most in need and living in poverty, ensuring they can enjoy Eid al-Adha alongside their brothers and sisters.

Qurbani donations that have been missed in previous years can be made up this year by making contributions for additional Qurbani shares..

When following Qurbani Eid rules, cutting hair and nails isn’t permitted from the start of Dhul Hijjah up until the sacrifice has been made, as per the words of the Prophet (SAW).

“When you see the new moon of Dhul Hijjah and one of you desires that he offer a sacrifice, then let him keep his hair and nails.”

Qurbani Eid 2023 takes place from sunset on Wednesday, 28 June, until Saturday, 1 July.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“There is no act of man on the day of Nahr (Eid al-Adha) more beloved unto Allah than the sacrifice. And indeed, the sacrificed animal will appear on Qiyamat day with its horns, hooves and skin. And indeed, the blood of the sacrifice is accepted by Allah even before it touches the ground. So perform the sacrifice with a happy heart.”

– Ibni Maja, Tirmidhi
