Qurbani is an annual re-affirmation of our pledge to Allah, a pledge that:
Verily my prayer, my sacrifices, my life and my death are surrendered to Allah; the Rabb of the worlds.

Eid-Ul-Adha reverberates with the cries of surrender, submission and sacrifice. It is a grim reminder that life is about action, struggle and endurance.

Alhamdulillah, during the Udhiyyah / Qurbani Campaign done for 30 years AMA’s distribution of several hundreds of Qurbani animals and thousands of parcels of meat benefited the most needy in various local Islamic Dawah centres and those orphanages and Masjids that we have built in various parts of the continent.

This enabled many needy people to experience the spirit and essence of this sacred act of Udhiyyah in slaughtering the Qurbani animal themselves, in their locality / Dawah centre and truly celebrating the day of EID-UL-ADHA upon completion of the Eid Salaah.

Thousands of needy, poverty-stricken Muslims benefited from the meat and food generated from the Qurbani slaughtering of sheep / goats and cows done in their respective areas and Ibadaat Khannas and local village Masjids in the rural and needy areas of the Malawi, Northern Mozambique; Mali; Somalia Namibia and here in South Africa.

With networking and partnering with over 30 Organisations, we were able to reach out to many more. Some of the Dawah centres that benefited from our allocation and distribution of Qurbani animals to the various parts of South Africa were, Al Furqaan Islamic Centre; Escourt Islamic Centre; Ladysmith Dawah Centre; Southern Africa Dawah Network, and many others.

Africa Muslims Agency / Direct Aid International thanks all their donors who made a difference to the thousands of needy who benefited from our Qurbani Campaign. May Allah (SWT) Reward you and your families abundantly and may our sacrifices be accepted for the Pleasure of Allah.


Nabi (SAW) said:
"There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta'ala during the days of Qurbani than sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgement with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed).
The Sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the Blood reaches the ground. So Sacrifice with an open and happy heart."
(Tirmizi, Hadith 1493)
