Yemen is currently facing a severe hunger crisis, resulting in malnutrition and starvation. This crisis has led to a loss of life, as 80% of the population depends on humanitarian aid. Over half of the population requires assistance, making Yemen the world's fifth-largest internal displacement crisis.

The economic impact of the war has significantly affected food availability. As a result, 17.6 million Yemenis, which is half of the population, are experiencing severe food insecurity. Additionally, 6 million people are at risk of famine.

Unfortunately, climate change has worsened Yemen's agricultural challenges. Harvests are expected to decrease by 40%.

Access to healthcare is extremely limited, with only half of the hospitals functioning. This has intensified the "double burden" of disease and conflict in Yemen.

Moreover, the deteriorating water, sanitation, and hygiene services have left many without access to safe drinking water, further worsening the ongoing crisis.

Families urgently need help to access food, as some go without a meal for days. This Dhul Hijjah, support those in need by donating your Qurbani and helping save lives in Yemen.

Spread kindness with your Qurbani

India is a country where millions of people suffer from undernourishment. Every night, there are families who go to bed on an empty stomach, with no meals to look forward to.

By donating your Qurbani, you can help provide a nutritious meal to these undernourished families, giving them the opportunity to experience the joy of Eid.

This Hajj season, follow in the footsteps of the Prophets and donate your Qurbani to support the most vulnerable.

The story behind the sacrifice

Qurbani is derived from the Arabic word 'Qurban,' which means an act performed to seek God's pleasure. It is also known as Udh-hiya, which is an Arabic word meaning 'blood sacrifice'.

Every year, during the month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims worldwide offer Qurbani by sacrificing an animal. This is not only a celebration but also an act of worship, following in the footsteps of Ibrahim (AS). Thousands of years ago, Ibrahim (AS) received a dream from Allah (SWT) ordering him to sacrifice his one and only son, Ismail. He accepted Allah's command and conveyed it to Ismail. Ismail (AS), without hesitation, accepted Allah's will. This incident demonstrated the courage, obedience, and love for Allah (SWT).

As Ibrahim was about to slaughter his only son, Allah (SWT) sent him a lamb and ordered him to spare his son and sacrifice the lamb instead. Allah (SWT) was testing Ibrahim's obedience and faith with this command. Ibrahim (AS) passed the test with unwavering obedience, patience, perseverance, and a true demonstration of faith. He was willing to sacrifice his only child to please the Almighty Allah (SWT).

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught us the significance of sacrifice and obedience when he personally offered Qurbani during the month of Dhul Hijjah. This act of worship follows the example set by Ibrahim (AS).

Today, giving your Qurbani is an opportunity to honour the sacrifices made by our beloved Prophets and provide families with a nutritious meal on Eid day.
