Making up for a missed Qurbani

Nasihah (Advice): Loving Allah
“Truly in the heart there is a void that cannot be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that cannot be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that cannot be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.” (Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah)
Question and Answer:
Q. Qurbani was Wajib on a person but he failed to make Qurbani. Now he realizes his fault. What should he do to make up?
A. The person should make sincere Taubah and give the value of the Qurbani animal in Sadaqah to the poor. The value of the animal on the day of Qurbani will be considered. (Ahsanul Fatawa, Vol: 7, Pg: 533, HM. Sa’eed)
