Emergency Myanmar Burma Appeal

Will you help ? £55 will provide food for a family

 

The Burmese Rohingya Muslim’s are recognised as one of the world’s most persecuted minorities, stateless and living in constant fear.

Living in make-shift camps on the border between Burma and Bangladesh, they are in desperate need of food, shelter and medical aid. With your kind donations we can help them survive in these difficult times.

fidya

Fidya

For those who are unable to fast due to difficulty (elderly, terminally ill, pregnant, breastfeeding etc.), a compensation must be given by feeding a poor person for every day of fasting not observed. Elderly, sick and other individuals who live in poverty and can’t afford to pay the fidya are not required to do so. Young and healthy individuals who miss fasts due to travel or sickness should make up the fast once their travels are over or they recover from sickness – and no fidya is required for those cases. There are different ways of fulfilling ones fidya by feeding the poor – as Allah (SWT) has left the commandment to be general when he said “And as for those who can fast with difficulty, they have to feed a poor person” [Al-Qur’an 2:184].

Wish to get your Qurban meat this year? 

Each year, by the grace of Allah (swt), many of us rush to secure our Qurbani. We make sure the most impoverished people receive the best Qurbani we can provide them. We select only the healthiest animals, ensuring high quality meat for those whose diets lack so much. We try to help the most vulnerable people first – women, children, the elderly, and refugees of war and disaster are always our priority. Give your Qurbani donation today. The prices are for a goat, sheep, or 1/7th of a cow (depending on country).

What is Qurban

Qurban lexically means approaching. Thereupon, sacrificing an animal means to sacrifice an animal out of the goods that Allah gave in order to approach Him and attain his pleasure and consent.

Allah states the following in the Chapter al-Hajj: “It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him.” (22/37). Accordingly, it is understood that the real aim of sacrificing an animal is to fulfill the order of Allah and show that one fears Allah. It means we can sacrifice even our most valuable things if Allah asks us. The aim is to show that we can even sacrifice our lives just like Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham) who decided to sacrifice his son, Ismail (Ishmael). In a sense, qurban means we can get rid of the feeling of loving worldly possessions and sacrifice everything for the sake of Allah.
