The months of Hajj are upon us once again. The alarming speed at which time passes reminds us that life is short, death is the only reality and the accelerated performance of good deeds is the only thing that endures.
Our Qurbani activity, as usual, will take place at the special Gift of the Givers facility we have established on a farm in Malawi several years ago. The animals are pre-selected by a cattle specialist, purchased four months in advance, nurtured and well-fed on this farm.
We limit the number of shares we offer in the best interests of hygiene and to facilitate a humane operation in keeping with the principles taught by our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). We have requests from Turkey, UK, Malawi and South Africa. The operation is swift and clean with instant distribution to 10 000 families receiving a 6kg meat parcel each. One hundred experienced volunteers are involved in the process over a 3-day period.
Cost is R375 per share. Deposits to be made into Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, Pietermaritzburg, Account No. 052137228, Branch Code 057525. Please fax or email deposit slip indicating number of shares purchased. Please note that we operate on a first come, first served basis as we restrict the number of cattle we sacrifice.
