Feeding Gaza

Feeding Gaza takes on a heightened importance amidst the current crisis of scarcity and ongoing violence. The region is grappling with a dire shortage of resources, exacerbated by relentless bombings and attacks that have left innocent civilians, including children, starving and vulnerable.

Providing sustenance to the people of Gaza is not merely a matter of charity; it is an urgent humanitarian imperative. In the face of unimaginable hardship, access to nutritious food becomes a lifeline, offering hope and dignity to those who have been stripped of basic necessities due to conflict and deprivation.

Moreover, the act of offering Qurbani holds profound significance in such circumstances. It becomes a symbol of resilience, solidarity, and defiance in the face of adversity. By extending a helping hand and sharing the bounty of Qurbani, we offer solace to those who are suffering and demonstrate our unwavering commitment to alleviating their plight.

In these trying times, feeding Gaza and ensuring that no child goes hungry is not just a moral obligation but a sacred duty. Let us come together during these best 10 days of the year to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Frequently asked questions

  • Qurbani, also known as Udhiya, is an act of sacrifice performed by Muslims annually following the Eid ul Adha prayers. This tradition involves slaughtering an animal, such as a sheep, cow, camel, or goat, to commemorate the Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to obey God's command to sacrifice his son.

  • Qurbani is obligatory for all sane adults who possess wealth beyond their needs.

  • Qurbani donations can be made up until the 13th day of Dhul Hijjah, which is the third day of Eid ul Adha, as the sacrifice must be performed before sunset on the 14th of Dhul Hijjah. Donating early ensures that the beneficiary receives their parcel in time for Eid ul Adha.

  • By donating £100 through SWAN, you can provide 240 pouches, each containing 500 grams of Qurbani meat, to families in Gaza. These pouches are produced in a GMP and HACCP Certified Plant in Brunei, ensuring high standards of quality and hygiene. They have a shelf life of 1.5 years and are marked with our logo before being dispatched to Gaza. Your donation fulfills your religious obligation and offers crucial support and hope to families in Gaza by providing them with essential sustenance for the months ahead. We strived to find a practical way to give support that can help for longer durations and for as many people as possible.

  • No. The £100 donation is for one share of a cow. A cow has 7 shares.

    Jabir ibn Abdullah reported: "We joined Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) in Hajj and we sacrificed a camel for seven persons and a cow for seven persons" (Sahih Muslim 1318d).

  • For donors that select Pakistan, the Qurbani will be performed on the second day of Eid.

  • Muslims perform Qurbani annually to honor the legacy of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), who, in a dream, received a command from God to sacrifice his only son, Ismail (AS). In unwavering obedience, Ibrahim (AS) prepared to fulfill this divine command. However, at the crucial moment, God spared Ismail (AS) and provided a ram as a substitute for the sacrifice. This event is referenced in the Quran: "We ransomed him with a great sacrifice" (Surah As-Saffat, 37:107).

    Despite his deep love for his son, Ibrahim (AS) was ready to obey Allah's command without hesitation. Today, the act of Qurbani commemorates Ibrahim’s (AS) profound submission to Allah's will. By offering Qurbani, Muslims demonstrate their complete obedience to Allah (SWT) and His commands, as emphasized in the Hadith where the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: "The son of Adam does not do any action on the Day of Nahr (sacrifice) which is more beloved to Allah than causing the blood to be shed" (Sunan Ibn Majah, 3126).

    Additionally, the division of Qurbani shares is supported by Hadith evidence, allowing larger animals like cows to be divided into seven shares. Jabir ibn Abdullah reported, "We joined Allah’s Messenger (SAW) in Hajj and we sacrificed a camel for seven persons and a cow for seven persons" (Sahih Muslim, 1318d). This practice ensures that the act of sacrifice is accessible and can benefit more people, aligning with the communal and charitable spirit of Qurbani.
