Allah continues to shower us with seasons of goodness wherein we can avail ourselves of His mercy and forgiveness.
Alhamdulillah, we are now in the months of Hajj. These days will culminate in the great days of Dhul Hijjah and the blessed act of Qurbani.
Prescribed in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger ﷺ, Qurbani is one of the great symbols of Islam. It is an emphasized Sunnah, and carries great merit and reward.
With Ummah Welfare Trust Pak, you can offer your Qurbani this year. Not only can you fulfill the Sunnah but you can do so while feeding the poor and forgotten.
- A small animal counts as 1 share. A large animal counts as 7 shares.
