The 10 Best Days of the Year Are Almost Here...

Dear HOPE Supporters, Did you know that the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are equal to the last 10 nights of Ramadan in terms of importance? This year, Dhul-Hijjah will begin approximately July 11, 2021. If you are not able to perform Hajj, here are some beloved deeds to perform during these special days: Fast: Fast the first 9 days if possible, but especially on the day of Arafah (the day before Eid): “Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for the preceding year and the following year.” [Muslim] Recite Zhikr: Recite tasbeeh (SubhanAllah), tahmeed (Alhumdolillah), tahleel (La illaha illa-llah), and takbeer (Allahu akbar) sincerely and as often as you can. Charity: Give Sadaqa to those less fortunate. Quran: Increase your recitation and understanding of Allah SWT's Holy Book. Qurbani: Honor the tradition of our great father, Ibrahim alay his salaam by sacrificing an animal. Qurbani meat is usually distributed as 1/3 to you and your family, 1/3 to family and friends, 1/3 to the poor. HOPE USA and HOPE UK can help you fulfill your Qurbani obligation. Last year we distributed Qurbani meat to 13,000 needy individuals in various locales of Pakistan. Our 2021 Qurbani Rates are as follows: HOPE USA 1 Goat (feeds 20): $220 1 Cow Share (feeds 14): $120 Full Cow (7 Shares - feeds 100): $840 For US donations, please visit our website at: https://www.hopecharityusa.org HOPE UK 1 Goat (feeds 20): £160 1 Cow Share (feeds 14): £90 Full Cow (7 Shares - feeds 100): £630 For UK donations, please visit our website at: https://www.hopecharitiesuk.org To place your order, select the appropriate Qurbani option from our dropdown menus.
