The Qurbani Project
Buy your sheep now and donate to ICARE FEEDING SCHEMES
On behalf of ICare Children’s Foundation we express our sincerest appreciation for your contribution throughout the year towards our fundraising events. It is through the support of individuals and corporate representatives like you that we are able to continue and strengthen our organisation and develop new innovative projects to help the underprivileged and children with disabilities.
Qurbani is the greatest act of Ibada on the day of Eid-Ul-Adha. We at ICare want to make this act of Ibada affordable and more available to the public. You may purchase a sheep at the price of R1700, 00 or buy your share by donating R500. 00. Meat may be donated to our feeding scheme or for distribution purpose. This will include slaughtering, cleaning, cutting and distribution.
Allah says in the Qur’an: 'It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches him. The scholars have stated that the philosophy behind ‘Udhiya’ is that it is a demonstration of submission to Allah, complete obedience to Allah’s will or command and sacrificing everything for his pleasure. Ibrahim demonstrated this spirit of submission and sacrifice in the best possible manner. When confronted with the challenge of love and allegiance, he chose to submit unconditionally to Allah and suppressed personal desire and love for his family and child. Qurbani calls for the slaughter of one's innate desires by placing the knife of courage and resistance on hatred, jealousy, pride, greed, animosity, love for the world and other such maladies of the heart.
