What we do
What is Qurban?
It is an act of sacrifice, a highly recommended religious rite since the times of Prophet Ibrahim a.s.
We call on you to donate your sacrifice, religious duty, to the world’s most needy families – give a Qurban4Life.
Muslim Aid Malaysia monitors the certified halal process of your Qurban. This ensures humane treatment of animals that results in healthy meat products. As part of our efforts to provide quality food aid distribution, Muslim Aid Malaysia sources livestock according to Islamic specifications. We ensure a balanced selection of male and female sheep for long-term sustainability, and non-diseased animals. Slaughtering will be carried out on the 10th to 13th Zulhijjah annually at halal facilities chosen by Muslim Aid Malaysia. This slaughter is done in selected abattoirs in Australia that is recognized by JAKIM and closely monitored by our sister organization, Muslim Aid Australia.
PREMIUM QURBAN (Package A) RM 850
The animals will be slaughtered in Australia and the meat will be processed and canned at a facility chosen by Muslim Aid Australia. Once ready, the cans will be sent to Syrian and Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. The canned meat will be delivered safely and fit for consumption by the intended recipients. More importantly, its shelf life is from three to four years and does not need refrigeration. We have no choice but to increase prices this year as all transaction are in USD. At present, the Malaysian Ringgit is very weak when compared to USD.
SPECIAL QURBAN (Package B) RM750
This package is special as its intended recipients are the needy in Malaysia. The animals will be slaughtered in Australia and Muslim Aid Malaysia will responsible for shipping them and then distribute to recipients in Malaysia, especially those facing hardships due to Covid-19.
This package is a solution to those who want to do Qurban the normal way, that is slaughter at places of worship. A difficult task if strict movement control order procedures are to be adhered to. Thus, management of places of worship are encouraged to promote this alternative package among their congregation.
LOCAL SLAUGHTER QURBAN (Package C) RM480
The activities involved will be slaughter of animals and immediate distribution of fresh meat. We have selected 20 countries. In Africa, qurban will benefit recipients in the countries such as Ghana, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda.
