Every year we facilitate on behalf of our reading community their Qurbani for Eid. It's a unique annual service we do in the spirit of serving our loyal readership.
1 whole goat or sheep will be dedicated in Makkah and distributed to those in need on your behalf. Our team has been partnering with a local farm for over 10 years to complete the Qurbani in Makkah. All the meat is distributed to the underprivileged residents of Makkah. Good deeds have a special virtue when done in Makkah.
All of our animals are one or more years old. None of the animals has any defects, such as, but not limited to, missing teeth, severed tails or defective ears. Our local Makkah team handpicks the animals prior to Eid and is involved in slaughtering and supervising the whole operation.
In honor of Dhu al-Hijjah — the Month of Allah — all who honor us by entrusting their Qurbani to our team will receive two special gifts:
A free paperback copy of our forthcoming book Forty Hadiths on the Merits of the Testament ‘Lā Ilāha illā Allāh’ by Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabhani, translated by Shaykh Ahmad Derrick Peat
A unique Ottoman style certificate designed by the IGP Manuscripts Team to celebrate the completion of the 2024 Qurbani
In order to allow our team time to prepare, these gifts will only be available for those who reserve Qurbani prior to 1 Dhul Hijjah.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my Qurbani be processed and distributed within the days of Eid?
Our farmer & processor have many years of experience processing and distributing meat during Hajj. They will ensure that all animals are processed & packaged on the day of Eid, and all meat is distributed the next day to this in need. This is also handled by team members of IGI in Saudi.
Who will receive donations of meat?
The meat from your Qurbani will be donated to the poor of Makkah and the outlying suburbs. The residents of these areas are largely emigrants & refugees, with large numbers from West & East Africa, as well as Rohingya from Burma.
How will you ensure my Qurbani is performed according to specifications?
We have a longstanding relationship with our farmers & processor through Hajj & umrah trips organized by Sara International Travel. IGI's team has personally supervised their work in the past & is confident they will fulfil their task with ihsan.
Is there any special blessing in having my Qurbani done in Makkah?
In general, actions within the haram carry special blessings & benefits. One might hope for some baraka in donating to the poor of Makkah, especially during a year when Hajj is again reduced & resources will be relatively scarce in the haram.
Can I dedicate animals for other purposes besides Qurbani, like an aqiqah or general sadaqah?
Yes! Please email us with your specific requests & we'll ensure they are fulfilled for you.
