Brief Explanation of Adahi / Qurban
Udhiah is the sacrifice of an animal (sheep, goat, cow or camel) in the name of, and in seeking the pleasure of, Allah the Almighty. It is carried out by Muslims every year during Eid Al-Adha – following the example of the father of Prophets, Ibrahim (Peace be upon him).
Allah says in the Quran: “It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, it is your piety that reaches him” (Ch:22, V:37).
The words Adahi, Udhiah and Qurban may often be used interchangeably in relation to this same act of worship, whereby an animal (as defined above) is sacrificed, consumed and/or shared, as a means of becoming or feeling closer to Allah (swt).
Bayt Al-Zakat Adahi Program
Our Adahi program is designed to help Australian Muslims distribute their Adahi to their poorer brothers and sisters in Lebanon. In distributing Adahi our donors thereby fulfill an act of worship, engage in the Islamic spirit of gift-giving, contribute to the feeding of the hungry, the relief of the poor and the sharing of a joyous occasion known as Eid Al-Adha.
How the Adahi Process Works?
Bayt Al-Zakat Australia collects a donation of about $135 from each participant (note: dollar amounts can be multiplied by the count of sacrifices desired).
Bayt Al-Zakat arranges for the halal slaughter of sheep at licensed abattoirs.
Bayt Al-Zakat arranges for the freezing, packaging and transport of frozen meats to Lebanon.
Bayt Al-Zakat utilises its Lebanese Office to distribute frozen meats to either: persons nominated by participants, or to those deem
ed as most poor and needy.

“إن على كل بيت أضحية في كل عام”.
