Muslims are required to sacrifice meat during the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice, and distribute it to the poor, to family members, and to neigbors. Charitable giving is one of the 5 pillars of Islam.
For many years, the former Islamic Shura Council of Michigan (now the Michigan Muslim Community Council) has collected and distributed the sacrificed meat to needy families in metro-Detroit. Over 30,000 lbs of meat are collected and distributed annually. MMCC has partnered with Gleaners Food Pantry, the Detroit Muslim Mission, Islamic Relief, Mercy International and others to make this huge undertaking successful.
Please make your contributions for 2014! The cost of each sacrifice is $160 in 2014.
