This year, we asked you to revive a forgotten Sunnah and give an extra Qurbani alongside your own sacrifice. Alhamdulillah, we are delighted to tell you that your Qurbani donations provided almost 4.2 million meals this Eid! On behalf of the families you’ve fed and all of us here at Muslim Hands, we want to say a big THANK YOU! May Allah reward you for efforts and put barakah in your sacrifice, Ameen.
Eid celebrations here in The Gambia with our UK team and the locals in Duwasu village and Giboro Kuta village. Alhamdulillah your Qurbani donations reached tens of families here, who have been waiting so anxiously. For so many of them, this is the one time in the year they get to eat meat, all because of your generous donations!
One of the many blessings of our Qurbani programme is that it doesn’t just feed families on Eid day; it also creates livelihood opportunities in the local community, benefiting people beyond the days of Eid-ul-Adha.

The day of ’Arafah is the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah and it is the best day of the year. While Laylatul Qadr is the night on which the Qur’an was first revealed, the day of ’Arafah is when the religion of Islam was perfected. The final verses of the Qur’an were not yet revealed, but Allah sent down this ayah on the day of ’Arafah. #arafah #hajj #qurbani
