For millions of Muslims around the world, Eid-al-Adha is the time of year where we remember the ever-inspiring life story of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and the great sacrifices he made to demonstrate his devotion and love for Allah (SWT).
This year, we are asking you to remember the people of Syria. For the thousands of families living in besieged areas and inadequate camps, access to meat is non-existent or a rare privilege. Families long for the opportunity to feed their loved one’s in celebration of Eid-al-Adha.
Given the difficult circumstances, Qurbani in Syria is certainly not the cheapest option – but true sacrifice for the love of Allah (SWT) will never be the easiest option. We guarantee that the smiles, the gratitude and powerful prayers of people of Syria who have suffered much and lost much will make it worth your sacrifice.
Please help us to reassure them that they have not been forgotten. Your efforts will help to ease hunger in Syria and its neighboring countries and will brighten up Eid for many suffering families.
Eid al-Adha 2019
special for Syrian families and orphans.
The Story of Qurbani
One of the greatest stories in the Quran is the story of Ibrahim (AS). This story is special because reminds us how he was tested and how he responded in the most beautiful way. Ibrahim (AS) was childless for many years before he and Hajar (AS) were blessed with Ismail (AS).Allah (SWT) willed that Ibrahim (AS) should be tested. When his son was old enough to accompany his father, Ibrahim (AS) had a dream.
In it, he dreamt that Allah (SWT) ordered him to sacrifice Ismail. He had this dream on three consecutive nights before he understood it to be a divine command, and not a trick of the devil.
Ibrahim (AS) told his son about the dream, and Ismail’s (AS) response was: “Oh my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast.” (37:102)
So father and son submitted to Allah’s (swt) command. But Allah intervened and sent a ram to be sacrificed in his son’s place. Despite the loss it would have caused, he demonstrated he would sacrifice his son as an act of piety.
Celebrate Eid-al-adha with displaced Syrians and help reassure them that they aren’t forgotten. Donate your Qurbani with Syria Relief and help ease hunger in Syria and its neighbouring countries.
