For your convenience, Islamic Relief Australia has answered frequently asked questions about Qurban.

How are animals selected for Islamic Relief’s Qurban program?
The animals used are an’aam animals, such as sheep, goats, cows and buffalo. The animals must be healthy, free from blindness and chronic sickness or disease or from any apparent ailment, and must be of a fit age. One sheep or goat equals one Qurban donation; one cow or buffalo equals seven Qurban donations. Our prices equal one share—one sheep or goat, or one-seventh of a cow or buffalo.

Who receives meat from Islamic Relief’s Qurban program?
Beneficiaries selected to receive meat include widows, orphans, the destitute, the elderly, people with disabilities, refugees and disaster-affected populations generally, people who cannot afford to buy meat often and whose diets are lacking in calories and nutrition.

Many of the recipients of Udhiyah/Qurban donations live in remote areas which are typically inaccessible Islamic Relief makes every effort to reach them in order to provide aid to some of the most vulnerable community members.

Does the sacrifice occur on the allotted days?
Yes, Islamic Relief performs the Udhiyah/Qurban during the day of Eid al-Adha and the ensuing three days of Tashreek. However, under extreme circumstances, there may be exceptions due to factors such as the abundant number of Udhiyah/Qurban or the volatile conditions on the ground in a particular country. In these cases, the Qurban may be done after the fourth day of Eid. Scholars have approved this practice.

Will you say the name of the person on whose behalf the sacrifice is being made?
No, because of the vast number of requests during this season, this practice becomes impossible. This is similar to the practice of offering sacrifice while on hajj. The scholars have approved the sacrifice without the names as long as the intention of the person was made. We suggest that you make the intention now.

Is it obligatory to give one Udhiya or Qurban for each member of my family?
Islamic Relief recognizes the various jurisprudence opinions (fiqhi) in the Islamic tradition, and welcomes all to fulfill their religious right as they see fit.

How late into the season can I donate my Qurban?
We accept orders up until the fourth day of Eid al-Adha. We pre-purchase the animals and plan one year ahead of time.
