his Ummah, the prophets and for his own living or deceased relatives, fiends
and teachers who have conveyed Deeni knowledge during one's lifetime.
Qurbaani meat and skin - It is
permissible to eat the Qurbaani meat. It can also be distributed to
relatives and friends whether wealthy or poor, Muslims or non-Muslims. It is
better to divide it into three parts. One for the family, one for relatives
and friends and one for the poor and needy.
Method of Sacrifice - It is more
virtuous to slaughter the animal with one's own hands. If one does not know
how to slaughter, it is preferred that he remain present while someone else
is sacrificing the animal.
Qurbaani Animal - It is
permissible to offer in sacrifice a goat or she-goat, sheep of all kinds,
cow, bull, buffalo or camel.
of Qurbaani & Time for Qurbaani - The
days of Qurbaani are the tenth, eleventh and twelfth of Zil Hijjah.
(Sacrifice) - It is an important
ibaadah (worship), and is from among the Sha'aair (symbols) of Islaam. It is
not a custom of 'Eid or a source of merry-making and gaiety; but it is a
shar'ee (religious) command to renew the commemoration of the Sunnah of
Ibraaheem alayhis Salaam and create the spirit and desire of selflessness
Whom is Qurbaani Waajib? - Qurbaani
is waajib on every Muslim who is of sound mind, mature (who has reached the
age of puberty), Muqeem (i.e. he is not a shar'ee traveler) and possesses
the amount of fifty two and half tolas of silver (i.e. 612,36 grams) or
wealth equivalent to that value which is in excess of one's aslee (basic)
Command for Qurbaani is for All Muslims - The
Qurbaani has been made waajib (incumbent) upon the whole Ummah and not only
upon the pilgrims. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the Sahaabah
radhiyallahu anhum, Taabi'een and the whole of the Ummah all over have kept
up this waajib steadfastly through all ages. It is a command of Allah to
all, be they in Makkah, Madinah or any other part of the globe.
of Qurbaani - Aaishah
radhiyallahu anhaa narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said:
"There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbaani than the
sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of
Judgement with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is
accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice
with an open and happy heart."
History of Qurbaani - Although
Qurbaani had been ordained an ibaadah from the time of Adam alayhis Salaam,
special importance was attached to it only after an incident which took
place with Ibraaheem alayhis salaam, and consequently it was made waajib
(incumbent) in the Sharee'ah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in his
