Your Zabiha/Qurbani/Udhiya in Africa...
Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet (sws) said: "There are no days more loved to Allah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer salatul tahajjud (late-night prayer) during one of its nights is like performing the later night prayer on the night of power. (i.e. Laylatul Qadr)."
Africa is the second largest continent in the world and also one of the poorest. More than one quarter of the children are underweight. HHRD annually performs Zabiha in Africa; giving the poorest of the countries the nourishment of meat, where food itself is scarce.
We are now in the month of Dhul Hijjah; the most blessed days are upon us. Many of us are looking forward to celebrating Eid with our family over a sumptuous meal. HHRD would like to request everyone to make an additional sacrifice for the people of Africa in Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan (Darfur) and Somalia.
Helping Hand for Relief and Development is performing Zabiha in over 55 countries distributing meat among more than half million needy people, who don’t get to eat meat the rest of the year.
Share Eid. Share Joy.
