Miscellaneous Laws pertaining to Qurbani

 

 

 

Great Virtue in performing Qurbani

Sayyidatuna Aaisha Radhiyallahu Anha narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta’ala during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice happily with an open heart.” (Tirmizi)

 

1) If there are various venues for Eid Salaah, slaughtering is permitted after any one venue has terminated with the Eid Salaah. (Shaami)

2) A man may purchase his wife’s animal from his wealth with her consent. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

3) It is Mustahab (preferable) for a person intending Qurbani not to cut/trim his hair and nails from the first of Zul Hijjah till after his animal is slaughtered. (Ahsanul Fatawa)

4) Qurbani will be discharged if one appoints a proxy for this task and the proxy fulfils the task. The proxy may be an organisation or an individual. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

5) If an animal purchased for Qurbani gives birth before its slaughter, it is best to give the live new born in charity. Alternately, the new born animal should be slaughtered and the meat given in charity. (Shaami)

6) If a traveller returned home or a person acquired the required wealth on the 12th of Zul Hijjah before sunset, it will be Wajib upon him to perform Qurbani. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

7) The Qurbani (slaughter) of a woman in haidh (menstruation) or nifaas (afterbirth period) is valid and permissible. (Fatawa Mahmoodiyah)

8) It is preferable to divide the meat into three parts. One part for one’s family, another should be distributed among friends and relatives and the third amongst the poor and needy. If a person has a very large family he may keep all the meat. (Shaami)

9) It is unlawful to sell the Qurbani meat. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

10) It is not permissible to tender the skin or meat as payment to the slaughterer (or skinner). Their fees should be paid separately. (Shaami)

11) It is not permissible to give meat, fat, etc. of the sacrificed animal to the butcher as compensation for services rendered. (Shaami)

12) It is permissible to utilize the skin for one’s personal use, e.g. he may use it as a Musalla or a leather bucket etc. However, if the skin is sold, it is not permissible to use the income thereof. It is Waajib to give it in charity. Sale of the skin without the intention of disbursing the money in charity is not permitted. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

13) It is not permissible to give the skin in lieu of any services rendered. (Fatawa Hindiyyah)

 

Warning for those who do not perform Qurbani

Hazrat Abu Hurayra Radiyallahu anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “He who has the means of performing Qurbani but does not do so should not come close to our Eid Gah (place where Eid Salah is performed). (Sunan Ibn Majah)
