Spreading Smiles In Eid: Qurban 2022 in Nigeria (Sheep/Ram)
As many as 4 in 10 Nigerians live below the national poverty line. Many Nigerians – especially in the country’s north – also lack education and access to basic infrastructures, such as electricity, safe drinking water, and improved sanitation. Families have been severely affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and have lost their sources of livelihood. Many families don’t even have the surety to have 2 proper meals in a day.
The World Bank has said that the number of poor Nigerians is projected to hit 95.1 million in 2022. This Eid al-Adha, we aim to put a smile on the face of our poor and needy Muslims brothers and sisters in and around Zaria. They should also get the chance to forget their sorrows and make the most out of Eid. Our charity partners, An-Nadaa will be arranging Udhiya or Qurbani of sheep and ram this Eid ul Adha.
After the qurban, the meat is not distributed randomly to anyone who comes asking for it. After careful research and proper verification, a list is formed of those who are the neediest families. The preparation of this list is done with a lot of care so that meat reaches those who are really deserving. Three methods are used by our on-the-ground charity partners, An-Nadaa for identifying them.
– Consulting the local Imams of the Masjid.
– Consulting School Administrations of these localities.
– Making our own research through our staff and volunteers who are themselves members of these poor communities.
The team on the ground will be fulfilling all Islamic principles and requirements as per proper Islamic teachings. The meat will be distributed to the most poor and deserving families in and around Zaria, Nigeria.
By donating to this qurban campaign, our donors have the unique opportunity for being of the very first people to help their Muslim brothers and sisters directly on the ground in Nigeria. 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]
Since 2017, our charity partner An-Nadaa has been making arrangements for performing your qurban in Nigeria and distributing the meat to the poor people in the community. Alhamdulillah this project has been bringing relief and happiness to these Muslim communities. The collections for it generally begin immediately after Ramadan.
There are many Muslim communities in and around Zaria that are very poor and facing dire circumstances. The lack of opportunities there leaves them with little or no means of livelihood. Even if they do find work the salaries are astonishingly low (less than 5 USD a MONTH). 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.
An-Nadaa Educational Foundation is an Islamic non-profit organization which is one of the first government certified Muslim organization on the ground. Their focus is on launching and managing educational, da’wah and welfare projects across underprivileged communities in Nigeria.
