Now users can pay for and distribute their Eid Al Adha sacrifice through Dubai app.
The Dubai Digital Authority, in partnership with the Dar Al Ber Society, has announced the launch of its ‘Eid Sacrifice – Udhiyah’ service on the DubaiNow application. The app is a one-stop shop for key Dubai government and private sector city services.
Muslims buy a sacrificial animal, typically a goat or sheep, for the annual Eid Al Adha (Festival of Sacrifice), which this year falls on June 20. They normally keep a portion of it for themselves and give the rest in charity or as a gift to others.
Launched under the categories of both ‘Islam’ and ‘Donations’, the ‘Eid Sacrifice — Udhiya’ service allows users of DubaiNow to request and distribute their sacrifice and pay for it, whether they are inside or outside the UAE. It also enables users to request a portion of the udhiya, while following Covid-19 precautionary measures.
Wesam Lootah, CEO of Smart Dubai Government Establishment, said the DubaiNow application is “continuously expanding in all fields” to become the unified and comprehensive portal for government services and transactions in Dubai.
The app “provides the ‘Eid Sacrifice – Udhiyah’ service within a safe and reliable payment procedure that saves time and effort”.
