Let’s revive the Sunnah together

Giving Prophetic Qurbani is a wonderful way to help the poor and destitute this Eid, while allowing you to model yourself after the Prophet (and his charitable ways. Surprisingly, not many people know that the Prophet (ﷺ) used to partake in this compassionate act of giving! This year, lets revive the Sunnah and share the joy of giving Prophetic Qurbani 2021.


What is Prophetic Qurbani?

The Prophet (ﷺ) used to give his Qurbani and then give a second Qurbani for those in his Ummah who were unable to do so themselves. This act of generous giving for those who cannot is now what we call Prophetic Qurbani.

With Eid ul-Adha nearing, Penny Appeal invites all Muslims to revive this Sunnah by giving Prophetic Qurbani. Double your rewards in the way our Beloved Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ) would have, donate one Qurbani for yourself and one for the less fortunate who cannot afford to do so themselves.

Why give Prophetic Qurbani?

During Dhul Hijjah and the Eid ul-Adha celebrations, Muslims reflect deeply on their personal lives, their faith and their relationship with Allah (SWT). It is through reflection such as this, that we can see why giving Prophetic Qurbani is such a wonderful thing.

In giving Prophetic Qurbani, we are following in the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ). He would often contribute to sacred acts of dedication and sacrifice for society, especially for the less fortunate. In remembrance of the sacrifice of his forefather Prophet Ibrahim (AS), our Prophet (ﷺ) would give his Qurbani and then give another for someone who simply cannot afford to fulfil this right.

By reviving this Sunnah, we are emulating the generous spirit of the Prophet (ﷺ) while helping to provide food to even more people around the world. For many of these people, this will be the only time of year that they get to enjoy fresh meat.

As well as helping feed the hungry, you will also receive numerous rewards for donating a Prophetic Qurbani 2021. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as). For every hair of the Qurbani you receive a reward from Allah (swt)” (Tirmidhi).

Think of how many hairs there are on a goat or a cow…there are billions upon billions of hairs on each of these animals! That means billions of rewards for the Qurbani you donate and even more when you give a Prophetic Qurbani.


When is Prophetic Qurbani Given?

Prophetic Qurbani is given at the same time Qurbani is given! You can order your Prophetic Qurbani with Penny Appeal Canada any time before Eid, which is permissible, and we’ll ensure the sacrifice is carried out on the right day.
We can take Prophetic Qurbani donations before and during all three days of Eid, so you have plenty of time to get your donations in This year the days of Qurbani are the 10th, 11th and 12th of Dhul Hijjah.

Act today on the beautiful, caring practice of the Prophet (ﷺ). Now is the time to double your rewards, donate a Qurbani on your behalf and another for someone less fortunate in our Ummah who cannot afford to donate. When you give Prophetic Qurbani, you receive double your rewards for this compassionate, selfless deed, so make sure to get yours in on time!
