During the holy month of Dhul Hijjah when we’re reminded of the dedication of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) who was willing to sacrifice his son for the sake of Allah (SWT).
Alhamdulillah, Allah bestowed upon Ibrahim His mercy and spared Prophet Ismail (AS). However, the story doesn’t end there. Here in the UK, we too feel the mercy of Allah (SWT) each and every day throughout our lives. Yet for millions of other people across the UK, life is far more challenging.
The holy month of Dhul Hijjah is our time to give back to others – and people at home need our help more than ever.
1 in 5 Britons facing food poverty
Across the UK, a staggering 14 million people are living in poverty. That’s around 1 in 5 people across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Many individuals and families struggling with poverty are unable to maintain a varied balanced diet – going without meat for example – or at worst risk simply going hungry.
By making a sacrifice for Allah (SWT) and donating Qurbani through Islamic Relief, you’ll be feeding a family in need during the blessed days of Eid and worshipping Allah Almighty as prescribed in the Holy Qur’an:
“Say, ‘Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.’” (6:162)
