Developing Strong Imams: Qurban 2021 in Malawi (Goat)

Key Points

Campaign Story

Malawi, a small country in Southern Africa, has the fourth highest percentage of people living in extreme poverty in the world. In Malawi, more than two-thirds of the population lives in extreme poverty, almost all of whom rely on small-scale farming for their livelihoods. 70% of people live on less than $1.90/day
This Eid al-Adha, we aim to put a smile on the face of our oppressed brothers and sisters in Malawi. The meat is distributed to after careful research and proper verification a list is formed of those who are the most needy families. The preparation of this list is done with a lot of care so that meat reaches those who are really deserving. 

What Is Special About Qurban in Malawi? The Imam Development Project (IDP) team under the supervision of Sheikh Bilal Ismail focuses on building and empowering Imams to strengthen communities. Via this campaign, the Imams in remote villages under IDP supervision will be given the funds to carry out qurban for their villages. These villages do not get to have meat for the whole year. Getting the meat from the local Imam would make the villagers feel more connected to the Imam and the Masjid. This campaign will also help support local herdsman and farmers. Overall, this would enhance the position of the Imam and open more doors for educational and empowerment programs.  

– The Imam secures the animal locally from the local herdsmen to support their business. This also allows for slaughter in the village itself instead of the commercial areas which are very far from the village and incur additional costs.
– The animal is cared for by the Imam and the Masjid. 
– The Imam and Masjid team will oversee the entire qurbani process. The team will slaughter, parcel, and distribute meat throughout the village using a voucher system. 

The team on the ground will be fulfilling all Islamic principles and requirements as per proper Islamic teachings. It’s not just about the quantity of the donation. The main aim is the quality of our donations and being a part of circulating good for the sake of Allah.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best of deeds is making the believer happy, such as covering his ‘awrah, satisfying his hunger or meeting his need.” [Tabarani]

For these people finding sustenance is a challenge in itself and with their non-existent to meager earnings a good meal (like meat) is a luxury most have rarely experienced. 

Your sacrifice done for these people will bring them huge relief and great joy on this auspicious occasion of Eid. Donations to this campaign will help provide meat packages to these poor and needy Muslims so that they also get the chance to forget their sorrows and make the most out of Eid.

Campaign Started

Alhamdulilah all the animals were slaughtered and the qurban was carried out successfully. 

Thank you for elevating the position of the Imams and feeding some of the poorest villages in Malawi. The funds were spread across multiple villages across Malawi.

The meat will be distributed by today to the verified beneficiaries via a token system to make sure that the most deserving and needy families get to have meat. This is managed by the Imam and the Masjid team. All the distribution will be completed by today as most of the beneficiaries don’t have fridges to keep the meat long term.
