DUBAI ó The Dar Al Ber Society has launched its Adahi campaign to donate for sacrificed animals during Eid Al Adha. The amount of donation for local Adahi has been set as Dh300 while Dh500 for abroad sacrifice.
The society distributed 11,000 Adahi locally and abroad in 2010. While 2,000 Adahi were distributed to poor families in the UAE, 9,000 others, along with Eid clothes and charities were given to needy people in 27 Arab, African and Asian countries.
Mohammed Suhail Al Muhairi, head of local affairs sector at the society, said donations for Adahi this season are accepted at the Islamic Department in Al Mamzar, as well as the society’s new head office on Shaikh Zayed Road and old headquarter by Ibrahim Al Khalil Masjid, Bur Dubai.
“Donations are also accepted as determined in collaboration with the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai — Dh300 for local sacrifice or Dh500 for abroad Adahi — at the society branches in Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman, along with the society representatives at all masjids and shopping malls.”
“We also accept donations through two bank accounts: Dubai Islamic Bank (01520500335001), and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (10068304), apart from specified charity ATM billed ‘Ataya’ or ‘Gifts’ at some shopping centres,” he added.
Meanwhile, Dar Al Ber is geared up to issue numerous booklets, cassettes, CDs and brochures on the first 10 days of the holy month of Zul Hijjah, about the rituals of Haj (Pilgrimage) and rulings of Adahi giving. “Several lectures and forums will also be held to develop people’s awareness of the Haj, which will start on October 28 as per the UAE Islamic calendar,” he said. Head of Local Projects at Dar Al Ber Society Mohammed Al Hammadi said the Adahi will be distributed abroad in cooperation with 38 charitable and Islamic organisations in 25 Arab, African, Asian and South American countries.
