“It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him.” (Quran 22:37)
Sameera Foundation is arranging a limited Qurbani arrangement (about 5 cattle) for our members and donors for the benefit of disabled, orphans, widows and the poor sector of villages in Pakistan. It is estimated that one share in an average sacrificial cow could cost about £75 (US$95 or Rs15,000). The healthy animal will be slaughtered in the presence of our local Masjid Sheikhs and committee members. The sacrificial meat will be distributed for disabled, orphans, widows & poor families under the supervision of Foundation Volunteers.
The donor will be provided the photo of the sacrificial cattle along with a banner showing the names of the participant/ participants for that particular Qurbani. The photos of our previous Qurbani project can be seen at the following links:
