Put Your Qurbani in Safe Hands.
‘It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him.’ (Qur’an, 22:37)
Last year, your Qurbani helped UCI feed 36,320 people – this Eid al Adha, we aim to reach more families in need and provide them with fresh Qurbani meat and meat-based meals, Insha’Allah.
UCI’s Qurbani 2022 Plans
UCI has big plans for 2022. With your Qurbani donations and Allah’s (SWT) help, we want to exceed our 2021 figure (36,320 people reached), Insha’Allah. Preparations are well underway. On the 10th, 11th and 12th Dhul Hijjah, we will be ready to implement Qurbani on behalf of our donors. Since launching our Qurbani Project in 2013, thousands of donors have entrusted us to perform Qurbani on their behalf. You, too, can do so with complete confidence.
The Process We Follow
100% Shari’ah Compliant!
100% Donation Policy!
UCI has been facilitating your Qurbani sacrifice since 2013. 100% of your Qurbani donation reaches recipients so you earn maximum rewards.
We source your Qurbani animals from various cattle markets. Our dedicated teams of staff and volunteers personally select your Qurbani animals making sure they satisfy the health, age and other criteria as outlined by the Shariah.
Until the 10th of Dhul Hijjah, we keep the animals well-fed and safe. Come Eid al Adha, our team closely oversees the Qurbani rites, making sure that all acts are performed in compliance with the guidelines commanded by Allah (SWT).
2021 Success – we could not have done it without your support
Last year alone, despite numerous challenges, with the help of our donors UCI gave Qurbani raw meat as well as cooked meals to 36,320 people. We prioritised those with very limited means like orphans and widows.
We believe UCI’s Qurbani Project is beneficial to donors and recipients. Our donors fulfil their obligation to perform their annual sacrifice while underprivileged Muslims can enjoy their Eid al Adha too. Their gratitude knows no bounds when they receive meat parcels and meat-based meals. Your Qurbani makes them smile and makes their challenging lives a little bit easier.
With your help, we can surpass our 2021 figures and meet our 2022 target.
Quick answers to your Qurbani questions:
1. What is Qurbani?
Qurbani, or Udhiyah in Arabic, means sacrifice. Every year Muslims around the world slaughter an animal on Eid al Adha (10th Dhul Hijjah) for the pleasure of Allah (SWT). At least a third of the meat is given to the needy.
2. Who is Eligible to Give Qurbani?
All Muslim adults who are eligible to pay Zakat must make an animal sacrifice on Eid Al Adha. By giving your Qurbani, you are fulfilling your religious obligation to provide quality, nutritious food to the poor.
3. What animals can be sacrificed?
Halal four-legged animals can be sacrificed as Qurbani, including goats, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, buffalo) or camels.
4. When is the best time to make my Qurbani donation?
The earlier the donation is made the better, as we start our planning and purchasing before the Eid days.

How We Helped this Widowed Mother
“My name is Fouzia, I am a widow and I take care of my five children alone. Our family hasn’t been able to perform qurbani in years, after the death of my husband, everything fell apart my five children and myself, our finances crumbled.
I am hardly able to feed my children a meal a day and occasions like Eid, things get even more difficult, they feel the absence of their father most strongly then. This, Ummah Charity International came to our house and gave us qurbani meat themselves, I cannot describe to you how much gratitude I have in my heart for people like them who care enough about forgotten people like me to remember us on days like Eid.
Thanks to UCI, my children and I ate meat after more than a year. Thank for your support, thank you for caring.”
Note: You can donate your Qurbani in your or someone else’s name. If no name is given in the ‘notes’ section of the online donation form, we will use the donor’s name.
