How are the qurbans sacrificed?


Our donators that give their qurbans to our foundation via proxy can donate by sending the specified qurban amount to our bank account numbers; by credit card, postal cheque, visiting our headquarters, online donations via the internet or by calling our headquarters.
In accordance to the donator’s requests, the qurban shares are distributed in the countries where IHH operates according to need.
The qurbans are purchased by IHH officials in the specified countries and regions in accordance with the criteria necessary for the qurbani worship.
Qurbans are sacrificed according to Islamic regulations after the eid prayers on the first day of eid. After exchanging eid greetings, the shares of the sacrifices are divided and distributed to people in need.
When the sacrifices are completed, confirmation of the sacrifice is sent by SMS to the qurban donators.

We were there

Greetings of Allah bring us closer together.

It was as if we were performing the eid prayers in a village in Anatolia. When the recital of Qur’an begins in this geography that we are totally unfamiliar with, all this unfamiliarity disappears and everything becomes more appealing. Happy children, the slanted eyed, radiant youth wearing their best clothing and us, we were all lined up for the prayers. After the prayers, everyone lined up to convey eid greetings to one another, and we exchanged eid greetings with each of them. Our eid turns into an atmosphere of joy and celebration. Then we went to the sacrifice grounds. Here it was a place of festivity; everywhere was decorated with IHH banners. Hundreds of people headed for the grounds immediately after eid prayers with their families to join the eid festivity. Everyone, whether in need or not came for the intercontinental gathering; Malaysians, Cambodians, people from Thailand, Jorden, Gaza, Vietnam and Turkey, hundreds of people gathered with Islamic consciousness. Where we come from bears no importance, the greetings of Allah bring us closer together…

Questions regarding our qurban projects

  • How does IHH prepare for the qurban projects?

    Determining the countries
    The countries where IHH has operated in the past are researched by our commission formed for the Qurbani activities. We also set a course by evaluating the new crisis regions that emerge during the year.

    Establishing teams
    Teams that will work in the specified countries generally consist of 3-4 individuals. Among the teams are IHH employees, volunteers from various occupation groups, housewives and students, and also journalists and authors to inform the public of the situation in these regions.

    Preparation of partner organizations
    IHH, that manages its activities from the headquarters in Istanbul, conducts aid works via local aid organizations. We instruct our partner organizations, that then begins the preparation process.

    Preparation process and tasks of our teams
    Reports and crucial information regarding the specific countries is conveyed to the teams at meetings held at IHH headquarters. Activities carried out throughout the operation in these regions are personally managed by IHH teams.

    Feedback and reports
    In meetings held with the teams who return to Turkey on completion of the operations, the experiences, observations and problems in the regions are related; the teams also report the requirements and needs in specific regions. This information is evaluated by the IHH board responsible for these particular regions and projects are planned.

  • How are people in need determined?
    In regions where IHH operates, projects in various fields are continued all year round. During these operations, those in most need are determined with the help of our partner organizations, and we concentrate our activities more in these regions to eliminate difficulty and hardship. In our distribution program, IHH gives priority to the refugee camps, victims of war and natural disasters, orphanages, orphaned families, the elderly, orphans, widows; areas where the people suffer poverty, schools, madrasas and hospitals. Before Eid al-Adha, a detailed report is prepared for each of the regions where we perform the sacrifices.
  • What does IHH take into consideration when determining the regions?
    When determining the areas, the degree of hardship constitutes importance and priority in the regions. Accordingly, regions suffering war and crisis, regions and countries experiencing natural disasters, poor countries and regions suffering from famine and drought, and areas and countries where Muslims are a minority are given priority.
  • Can aid organizations be appointed as proxies for Qurban?
    Aid organizations that sacrifice qurbans in regions in need both locally and abroad can be appointed as proxies. The only condition is that the organization sacrifices the qurban according to the Islamic objectives and regulations; the organization is trustworthy and will distribute the meat, skins and other parts of the animal to people in need.
  • How is the appointment of proxy necessary for the sacrifice done?
    Those who want the qurban to be sacrificed on their behalf send the determined qurban amount for the sacrifice and distribution of the meat to IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation. As in other aspects, the appointment of proxy is based on the intention and decision of the donator in question. People who apply to IHH to have the qurban sacrificed on their behalf automatically reveal this intention and decision. Additionally, it is not essential to reveal this verbally, as action and implementation is a declaration of intention. 
  • How does IHH determine the price of qurbans?
    As can be expected, the prices of qurbans vary in all parts of the world. In some regions the prices are lower, while in other countries the prices can be higher than Turkey. Because we predict that qurban donations will be higher in regions where the prices are lower, and less where the prices are higher, IHH receives prices for each of the regions and strategically determines an average price. In the same way that a single price prevents concentration in regions where the prices are lower, this also enables us to deliver meat to all regions according to need. This means that we can deliver meat to regions that would not receive qurban donations or a low number of donations because the price is higher. 
  • Can the person choose the country for the sacrifice?
    Donators can select any of the countries specified by IHH for their sacrifices. However, it would be more appropriate to allow IHH officials to choose the regions as this will prevent concentration in certain regions.
  • How can a person that appoints IHH learn if the sacrifice has been performed?
    IHH sends an SMS to the mobile phones of all donators that donate their qurbans confirming that the sacrifice has been performed. When the sacrifices in the regions are complete, IHH headquarters is informed that the sacrifice of the qurbans has been completed. When we receive this information, SMS texts are sent to those who donated qurbans.
