Qurbani Organisations in Africa
There are Islamic principles that must be followed when authorising a person to do your Qurbani. Our Diversity team, with an experience of more than 20 years in the field, are personally involved in every step, from accepting the authorization to slaughtering the sacrificial animals and informing the donors after their Qurbani is done. Throughout the year, our permanent regional representatives personally execute your Qurbanis in various spots, be it Wajib, avowed Aqeeqah, shukr and other nafils.
Qurbani in Africa
What is Wajib Qurbani? It is the sacrificial animal (a sheep, goat, cow or camel) that a baligh (mature) Muslim of sound mind who possesses the Nisab amount of wealth, sacrifices as an act of worship in order to gain closeness to Allah (Subhanahu).
What is nafl Qurbani? It is any qurbani that a person sacrifices for the pleasure of Allah (Subhanahu), for every intention besides Eid’ul Adha.
What is a Vowed Qurbani? Many people make dua in the form of a pledge to Allah (Subhanahu), that “If such and such occurs then I will do a qurbani.”. When the dua has been answered, it becomes incumbent on the person to sacrifice the promised. This type of sacrifice is called Vowed Qurbani.
What is Aqeeqah?. It is the Qurbani that is offered upon the birth of a child as a Shukr (Thankfulness) to Allah Ta’ala. Aqeeqah is Mustahab (Recommended act). It may be sacrificed on any day following the birth of the child. It is more virtuous to perform it on the 7th day after birth. It is Sunnah to sacrifice 2 animals for a boy and 1 for a girl.
What is Shifa Qurbani? It is the Qurbani that is offered for the recovery of an ill person.

Qurbani Preparations in Africa
Your Qurbanis are registered at UICT offices, online through our website or telephonically. UICT staff diligently accept verbal authorisation to execute the qurbani of each person. Representatives in various African countries are notified of qurbani, and are given the authority to sacrifice the animal by UICT officials.
The destitute in Africa are mostly found in the rural regions. Our regional representatives search all surrounding stockbreeding areas to find the most suitable sacrificial animals for our donors.
The sacrificial animals are carefully selected and marked. An excess amount of animal is kept in case of extra demand on Eid day or for unforeseen circumstances. We apprehensive and prepared for the natural kinks that come with the job. Destitute villages are personally visited and the Qurbani meat is individually delivered to those in need.
Once the areas and villages are identified to execute the Qurbani operation, the slaughter areas and equipment are prepared and the UICT team who are permanently on site will personally slaughter the animals together with local volunteers and thus the Qurbanis reach to the intended people.
The Slaughter and Distribution of Qurbanis
Permanent regional representatives of UICT on site, together with volunteers inspect the slaughter areas. Then the sacrificial animals are slaughtered by our experienced team on behalf of donors.
Family members and tribal chiefs in every village are communicated through their local languages giving the message that the Qurbanis are gift to them from their Muslim brothers and sisters. Our teams do not leave their posts until the animals have been slaughtered and distributed equally. The whole process is handled in this manner.
Notification of Qurbani Sponsorship
This is the phase where we inform our donors conforming that their Qurbani has been done. They will be notified through videos which indicate where their Qurbani has been done.
The recipients of the Qurbani meat are always grateful for your kind contributions.
The cost of 1 Qurbani is R1600.
