We will be extending our support to Pesantren Darul Hikmah in Indonersia. This has been our annual project in support of Pesantren Darul Hikmah/Darul Hikam since 2007.
Additionally, we will also be organising Qurban in Australia!
About Qurban (Udhiyah)
The Qurban or Udhiyah is a Sunnah Muakkadah (highly recommended act) according to the majority of Islamic scholars. One sacrifice is sufficient on behalf of all the family members especially for the head of the household.
Qurban Project #1 – Surabaya, Indonesia
Alhamdulillah, for the 13th year running SimplyIslam will be organising a Qurban project in Indonesia to raise funds for Pesantren Darul Hikmah/Darul Hikam (Islamic Boarding Schools) in Mojokerto (near Surabaya, Indonesia). This project is conducted in collaboration with the eminent Ustaz Masruhan Kyai Choteb and his group of Islamic schools – Darul Hikmah & Darul Hikam.
How the Qurban Project Helps?
The funds raised will be utilised for the maintenance of over 1200 students studying at the schools. These students pursue both academic and Islamic studies at the school, including some pursuing the Hafiz or memorisation of the Qur’an program. While some of these students are also boarding students, most of them come from poor and needy families. The meat will be distributed to the students and residents around the Pesantrens.
What’s the Cost per Animal?
The price per sheep is only S$250. Please support the project generously. Your support will go a long way, Insha’Allah. Orders for this project closes on 12 July 2021 online.

Q: Is it permissible for one to perform Qurban overseas such as in Indonesia?
A: The Qurban is a recommended act. It is also recommended that the performer of the Qurban sacrifices the animal himself. If unable, another may perform the sacrifice on behalf of the person performing the Qurban. It is also recommended that the person performing Qurban to witness the sacrifice itself and pray that Allah accepts that act as an ibadah. However, if one is also unable to witness the sacrifice, his/her act is still valid and it will, Insya Allah be accepted. This includes Ritual sacrifices done anywhere in the world.
