SANZAF offers the public the opportunity to facilitate their Qurbani while ensuring that the sacrifices made by a qurban provides food to under-resourced communities in South Africa and the rest of the Southern African region.

Each year SANZAF diligently facilitates this by ensuring that treatment, storage and sacrifice of the animals are carried out according to the sunnah and comply with Shariah and standards set out by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Last year, through SANZAF’s Operation Qurbani, over 70 communities across South Africa received a share of 1375 local Qurbanis benefitting over 4000 needy families. In Malawi and Mozambique, we distributed over 7500 shares providing food to approximately 100 000 individuals.

In addition, SANZAF contributes R15 of each Qurbani to the Masjied Waqf Fund and were able to provide two Masajid in South Africa with financial assistance. Plans to utilise funds from this initiative will be implemented in the 2020/2021 financial year.


Qurbani (or Udhiyya as the Shari‘ah refers to it) has become synonymous with ‘Id-ul-Adha, the festival of sacrifice. It is a time when Muslims the world over commemorate the sacrifice of Nabi Ibrahim (AS).

Similarly, the sunnah of the Prophet (S.A.W) was to perform the sacrifice of ‘Id-ul-Adha personally and in full sight of his companions. In so doing, he not only demonstrated how the animal should be treated and slaughtered, but he also taught us that the best method of dawah was through one’s personal conduct.

According to Imaam Abu Hanifa (RA) it is a waajib to perform Qurbani annually if one has the means to do so.

SANZAF Reflects on successful Qurbani period.

Shukran for your support!

SANZAF is pleased to announce that with the grace of the Almighty and your generosity, our 2019 Operation Qurbani went off successfully. In 2019 your sacrifices allowed us to provide food to thousands of families in South Africa, Malawi and Mozambique. Our offices across South Africa facilitated the Qurbani of 1419 shares which were distributed in over 120 needy communities and will be used in our monthly food programmes. In Malawi and Mozambique, 7 759 shares were sacrificed benefitting some 97 108 individuals. All animals are sourced locally, supporting local economies and sustaining local farmers.
