Eid-ul Azha - Helping the Deserving People

Just a few weeks before Eid-ul-Azha, a team of volunteers led by SM Jawad from Hyderabad, India, came up with an idea to perform Qurbani (Sacrifice an animal on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha) on behalf of those living in foreign countries ( who cannot perform the Qurbani) and distribute the Meat and cash to the deserving families in different clusters of Mahadvia community in India.

The idea was well received and some members living in foreign countries sent their request to perform Qurbani on their behalf. Inshallah, the response to this noble cause will be manifold and we hope this activity will be expanded to other areas of India next year.

Kudos to all the volunteers, may Allah reward you for the services in this world and hereafter.


Below is the report by Br. SM Jawad from Hyderabad, India.


As Salam Alaikum

By Grace of Almighty Allah SWT the Qurbani program went Alhamdulillah pretty smoothly and achieved its purpose. Jazakallah Khair to all those who participated in it, to those who appreciated it, to those who volunteered and executed this program in a most humble, dedicated, passionate manner with sincerity and responsibly. We highly appreciate the help extended by many in Hyderabad, Lalgarhi, Ghatkesar, Channapatna, Bhadravati (Shimoga district, Karnataka), Humnabad, Pindiyal and Jaipur.

Sorry for the delay in posting as I was trying to get the pictures as well. Individual emails are being sent to the persons who have participated in the Qurbani program with other details which we have to inform them personally.

Jazakallah Khair to each and every individual involved in this first time effort. Wastey Allah Key Maaf Kar dijiye agar kuch sahi nahi hua to.

Inshallah next year we are planning to conduct similar exercise in deserving Mahdavi communities in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

Khudahafiz O Nasir.
