The aim of sacrifice, like all other fundamentals of Islam, is to imbibe piety and self righteousness. It also promotes the spirit of sacrifice for a right cause. HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan is striving hard to reach out to the poor and less fortunate this Eid.
There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Eid al-Adha than the sacrificing of animals. Sacrifice, as practised by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) is an essential religious ritual of the Muslims – replicating and commemorating the sacrifice performed by Prophet Ibraham in its truest spirit and essence. God put Prophet Ibrahim to a most difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Quran.
Qurbani meat is divided into three parts; one for the family, the other for the neighbor and the third portion for the poor. And so Muslims fulfill their obligation and distribute some meat of goats, cows, sheep and camels to the underprivileged.
HOPE- a Health NGO in Pakistan, was actively involved in the distribution of sacrificed animals among the deserving families this Eid-ul-Azha. HOPE carried out its annual Qurbani on all three days of Eid and sacrificed a total of 18 Cows which was distributed benefitting a total of 3800 families whilst 17 Goats were sacrificed and meat was distributed to 600 families.
HOPE under the supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- a child specialist in Karachi, distributed meat in every nook and corner of Pakistan so that no one if left hungry and unhappy this Eid. Areas included: Rehri Goat, Bhens Colony, Ghaggar, Gadap, Mujahid Colony, Bhittaiabad, Sachal, Bilal Colony, Zia Colony, Muzaffargarh, Sujawal, Badin, Thatta and Gurumandir, Karachi.
HOPE USA chapter, Human Concern International (HCI) and many individual donors contributed for the share in cows and for goats.
With the spirit of Charity, HOPE was able to put a smile to those underserved population who otherwise starve themselves to sleep every night. HOPE has always been a forerunner in carrying out those activities which benefit humanity in any way possible.
