What is a Prophetic Korban (Qurban)?

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) offered Korban (Qurban) for the sake of Allah (SWT). However, he didn’t just give one Korban (Qurban) to fulfil his duty to Allah (SWT), he gave two!

This second Korban (Qurban) was on behalf of his Muslim brothers and sisters who couldn’t afford to give one.

Follow in the footsteps of our beloved Prophet Muhammad and donate a Prophetic Korban (Qurban) today.

When we offer a Prophetic Korban (Qurban) , we follow in the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Yes, we’re following his Sunnah.


The Prophet (peace be upon him) sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the oneness of Allah and [his] prophethood

Hadith | Abu Talhah (Ahmad)

Why give a Prophetic Korban (Qurban)?

As Muslims, we strive to follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and replicate his good deeds.

By giving a Prophetic Korban (Qurban), you’ll be following in the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet and helping even more people in need, SubhanAllah!

Whoever revives a Sunnah of mine that dies out after I am gone, he will have a reward equivalent to that of those among the people who act upon it, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest

Hadith | Ibn Majah

How do I give a Prophetic Korban (Qurban)?

Giving a Prophetic Korban (Qurban) is quick, easy and super-efficient using our above calculator.

By selecting to give one Prophetic Korban (Qurban), you will be carrying out two Korbans (Qurbans) in the countries from your chosen group.

When do you give a Prophetic Korban (Qurban)?

Korban (Qurban) will be performed after the Eid Salah, on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah and ends up to sunset on the 13th of Dhul Hijjah. There is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars as to whether Korban (Qurban) can be done over three or four days. To respect this difference of opinion, Islamic Relief strives to perform Qurbani in three days. However, we only extend into the fourth day in localities where this is religiously accepted by the local Muslim population. And if there is an operational need for this extra day.

If you give a Korban (Qurban) on any of these days, it will still be carried out in time, as Islamic Relief has already purchased the animals to be slaughtered beforehand.
