Charity Encourages North-Western Muslims To Make Qurbani Donations For Eid Ul Adha 2019

July 29, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ -

Brierfield, England based Hajjah Naziha Charity (HNCO) recently issued a public reminder encouraging the local community of Muslims in the greater North West area to make their donations for the upcoming Eid Ul Adha 2019. HNCO also urges all qualified Muslims to pledge their donations through official charitable institutions, such as HNCO, where they can pay either for a full or part sacrifice that will directly benefit the poor and the hungry across the globe.

This year, Eid Ul Adha starts on 11-August-2019 and ends on 15-August-2019. Also referred to as the ‘second Eid,’ Eid Ul Adha commemorates and celebrates Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion and willingness to sacrifice his only son Ismail to Allah. This season is particularly significant for Muslims across the globe to show their willingness to sacrifice like Ibrahim by means of making donations towards the ceremonial slaughter of a cow, goat, or sheep, the meat of which will be given to those living in hunger and poverty.

Known as Qurbani, this practice is a direct representation of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son due to his devotion to Allah. Allah intervened, however, and instead sent a sheep to be sacrificed in Ismail’s place. He was saved because Ibrahim proved his faith and devotion to Allah, despite the loss it would have caused him. This paved the way to the practice of sacrificial acts during Eid Ul Adha, a reminder of Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah.

“Personal sacrifice is an important part of Islam not only during times of holy significance but also throughout the whole year,” says Gulshan Rehan from HNCO. “Sacrifice keeps men and women humble and grounded, while showing the less fortunate that there is love and hope in the Muslim community. This year, HNCO will be organizing Eid presents for children and gifts for adults too. Everyone deserves to celebrate Eid, no matter where they are, no matter how much money they have or don’t have.” Giving a small donation, he notes, will still go a long way by bringing relief to families around the world.

As noted on the charity’s website, HNCO has teamed up with global organization Muslim Hands to assist in Qurbani 2019. By teaming up with an organization with the experience, outreach, and respect of Muslim Hands, HNCO can reach people in all the places where it would otherwise struggle logistically due to a lack of manpower, overseas licensing, and other formalities.

“We are proud to announce that 100% of proceeds and donations made through HNCO will go directly to the charity causes rather than a portion being required for separate administration costs,” says Rehan. He also states that all adults that meet the requirements of Nisab, and therefore pay Zakat, are eligible to pay Qurbani during Eid Al Adha. He further explains that there is no set amount to pay and the donation is not calculated based on wealth. Instead, donors will choose to give either part or full Qurbani, based on the price of the sacrificial cow, sheep, or goat.

HNCO is a UK-based charitable institution with a global outreach. They are committed to implementing an efficient and compassionate allocation of donations to deserving individuals worldwide. The organization was founded with a mission to help individuals and communities achieve societal harmony and moral excellence by means of working proactively to present peace and interfaith respect. The charity also strives to encourage people to break social stigma, such as those that surround race and religion. Some of their notable programs include providing meals for people in need in Indonesia, Malaysia, Africa, and the UK; digging freshwater wells in rural Africa; supporting orphans from third-world countries with housing, healthcare, and education until they reach adulthood; distributing books and education supplies to children in Indonesia and Africa; and holding free classes in all core academic subjects like English, Science, and Mathematics.

More information can be found on the charity’s website. They also encourage everyone to join the good cause and become one of HNCO’s volunteers by signing up on their website. Furthermore, interested parties may connect with HNCO through their official social media pages to stay up to date with their latest news and announcements.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Aug 11, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Aug 11, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Aug 11, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
