By the mercy of Allah the Hajj season is fast approaching and with Allah’s permission, the Mauritania Foundation is accepting your Qurbani payments for the sacrifice of 200 sheep and 20 cows for distribution to the poor and needy throughout Mauritania. The cost of one sheep is $140 USD, while the cost of a cow is $450 USD.
Your Qurbani payment needs to be received by our August 27th deadline to ensure the animals are purchased, sacrificed, and distributed in time. We recommend to everyone give at least $140, the cost to purchase a single sheep, or $450, the cost to purchase a single cow.
We pray that you will consider us as distributors for your Qurbani and ask that you encourage others to give to this noble cause. There is tremendous Barakah in both assisting the poor and providing food for the needy. Insha’Allah by giving your Qurbani, you will receive Barakah for both. We pray that everyone who Allah blesses to make Hajj this season will receive a Hajj Mabrur wa Maqbul and exit the Haram the same way they were born into this world, free from sin. Allah says in the Qur'an:
وَالْبُدْنَ جَعَلْنَاهَا لَكُمْ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ ۖ فَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهَا صَوَافَّ ۖ فَإِذَا وَجَبَتْ جُنُوبُهَا فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْقَانِعَ وَالْمُعْتَرَّ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ سَخَّرْنَاهَا لَكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ
"And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful." - Suratul Hajj
Barak Allahu Feekum!
