Question and Answer:
Q. My wife usually performs her Qurbani at home with her own hands. On this Eid, she is due to have her menses on the day of Eid. Is it permissible for her to slaughter in this state?
A. It is permissible for your wife to slaughter the Qurbani animal in the state of menstruation. The Qurbani will be valid. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah Vol: 14, Pg: 353, 1413ed, ad-Durrul Muntaqa, Vol: 4, Pg: 154, D.K.I)
