Benefit Mankind 2022 Qurbani
Qurbani means sacrifice.
Every year during the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims around the world slaughter an animal – a goat, sheep, cow or camel – to reflect the Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail, for the sake of God.
Qurbani gives hope
Throughout our lives, each and every one of us makes sacrifices to help our friends, family and neighbours. By sacrificing what we have to help those in need, we offer crucial solidarity and hope. Right now, a staggering 1 in 9 people worldwide are battling chronic hunger and struggle with poverty. However, there is hope: by giving Qurbani, you can feed a family in need this Eid.

Who needs to perform Qurbani?
According to most Muslims, Qurbani is obligatory upon every sane adult Muslim male/female who has wealth in excess to his/her needs. Normally those who are eligible to pay Zakat are obliged to give Qurbani.
How do Benefit Mankind select the beneficiaries?
It is the policy of Islamic Relief that the selected beneficiaries of the Qurbani project are made eligible based on a scoring system, which ranks families according to need. The scoring system is based on the following objective criteria:
- Families who live on less than the minimum income for that particular country
- Female-headed households
- Families with disabled and/or elderly persons
- Children under five years old
- Pregnant women
- Breastfeeding mothers
- Families with little or no access to the market
A thorough needs assessment will be conducted to objectively identify the weighting and priority of each of the above criteria. These are then applied when selecting beneficiaries to ensure we reach the neediest without bias or subjectivity in selection.
Do I need to perform Qurbani on behalf of my children?
This depends on the school of thought you follow. Please consult your local Imam/Sheikh for further information.
Do we need to give the names of the people giving Qurbani?
No, this is not necessary as long as you have made the intention that you are giving this Qurbani on behalf of a certain person. Intention is essential.
- A small animal counts as 1 share. A large animal counts as 7 shares.
