Taking a loan to do qurbani

Question and Answer:

Q. I would like to do Qurbani but I do not have sufficient funds. I am not a person who pays Zakaat as I do not possess the Nisaab amount. I know I cannot afford to do Qurbani but can I take a loan and do Qurbani this year?

A. If you do not possess the Nisaab amount (which is currently +/- R5150.00) during the days of Qurbani, it will not be Wajib on you to do the Qurbani. Therefore, you should desist from taking a loan for this purpose. A person upon whom Qurbani is not necessary should not incur debts beyond one’s capacity to offer the Qurbani.
