AN ANIMAL WAS FOUND PREGNANTIf a person bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani and then found that it was pregnant, then if the person who bought the animal is a sahib-e-nisaab, then he can buy another animal for Qurbaani and he can rear the pregnant animal. If he wants to sell it, then he can do so as well.If the person who bought the animal is not a sahib-e-nisaab, then it is compulsory upon him to slaughter that very animal. For details, see under ‘Pregnant animal’.

THE PLACE OF SLAUGHTERING

The place of slaughtering is between the throat and the jaw. The entire neck should not be severed. In fact, the Haraam marrow should not be cut. The wind pipe and the veins around it (also called audaaj) should be cut. In this way the impure blood will be taken out and the animal will be given as little difficulty as possible. The blood is not taken out and the animal is given great difficulty without any necessity if any other methods is adopted.

BEING SUSTAINED WITH THE MILK OF A PIG

If the young of an animal was brought up drinking the milk of a pig, that young animal will be Halaal. The Qurbaani of this young animal is valid. However, it should be given other fodder a few days before Qurbaani.

A SAHIB-E-NISAAB BECOMES POOR

Qurbaani was compulsory upon a person. However, he did not perform it as yet and before the time of Qurbaani could be finished, he became poor. Then Qurbaani falls off him.

A POOR PERSON BECAME WEALTHY AFTER MAKING QURBAANI

A poor person upon whom Qurbaani was not compulsory performed Qurbaani out of his own will. After this, during the days of Qurbaani, he became wealthy, possessing nisaab. Now, it is compulsory upon him to make a second Qurbaani.

A POOR PERSON BECAME WEALTHY DURING THE DAYS OF QURBAANI

If a poor person got wealth before sunset of the 12th of Dhul Hijjah and he became a sahib-e-nisaab, then Qurbaani will become compulsory upon him.

A POOR PERSON BOUGHT AN ANIMAL

If a poor person bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani, then the Qurbaani of that animal becomes compulsory.

A POOR PERSON TOOK AN ANIMAL FOR QURBAANI

…..If a person is poor, then Qurbaani is not compulsory upon him. If he buys an animal with the intention of Qurbaani, then the Qurbaani of that animal becomes compulsory upon him. However, if this animal died or got lost, then this Qurbaani falls off him. A second Qurbaani does not become compulsory upon him.

If the poor person bought a second animal after the first one got lost, then he found the first one. In this case, it will be compulsory upon him to slaughter both animals because whatever animals a poor person buys with the intention of Qurbaani, all of them become compulsory upon him to slaughter.

A POOR BECAME WEALTHY AT THE LAST MINUTE

If a poor person willfully made Qurbaani at the first time and then he became wealthy at the last time, then a second Qurbaani becomes compulsory upon him.

A POOR PERSON BOUGHT AN ANIMAL WITH THE INTENTION OF QURBAANI

If a poor person bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani, then Qurbaani becomes necessary and compulsory upon him.

MAKING QURBAANI IN ANOTHER PLACE

…..If the residents of one country make Qurbaani in another country, then it is valid. There is no dislike for it according to the Shari’ah. It is however better that one rears the animal, serves it and builds a relationship of love with it. This is because it is a means of attaining great reward; in fact, it is a substitute for sacrificing ones’ children. It is Mustahab to slaughter the Qurbaani animal one’s self. If a person cannot slaughter himself, then he should be present when the animal is being slaughtered. It is Mustahab to eat from ones Qurbaani. If possible, then the first food one should eat on the day of Eid should be the meat of one’s Qurbaani, and he should feed his neighbours, relatives and the poor. By getting the Qurbaani done somewhere else, then one is deprived of all these blessings. If there is some valid excuse or there is some underlying Shar’i reason for the person to do the Qurbaani in another place or in another country, then not only will he get reward, but there is hope that he will get even more reward. For example, in order to fulfill the rights of one’s relatives in another country, a person arranges Qurbaani, or the people there are very poor and needy, they are in need of every morsel, just as is the case in Afghanistan and some countries of Africa, then there is no problem in sending money there in order to get the Qurbaani done.

THE PERSON PERFORMING QURBAANI IS IN ONE COUNTRY AND THE ANIMAL IS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY

If the person performing Qurbaani is in one country and the Qurbaani animal is in another country, then in this case, both the person and the animal will be considered, i.e. it will be necessary to do the Qurbaani on the common Eid day between them.

For example, one person stays in Saudi Arabia and he wants to do his Qurbaani in Pakistan. So, the animal is in Pakistan and the person performing Qurbaani is in Saudi Arabia. Generally, in Saudi Arabia, the day of Qurbaani is one day before and that of Pakistan is one day after. In this case, the common days of Qurbaani will be the first and second day in Pakistan. For this reason, the Qurbaani animal should be slaughtered on the first or second day, otherwise the Qurbaani will not be valid. For example, if the Qurbaani was done one the 9th or the 12th of Dhul Hijjah in Pakistan, then the Qurbaani of the person in Saudi Arabia will not be valid.

A RICH PERSON BECAME POOR BEFORE QURBAANI

If a person was a sahib-e-nisaab and he bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani, but before the days of Qurbaani could come in, he became poor and he remained without nisaab until the end of the days of Qurbaani, so Qurbaani does not become compulsory upon him. Such a person can sell this animal and use this for his needs. If he becomes a sahib-e-nisaab at the end of the days of Qurbaani, then Qurbaani becomes compulsory upon him, whether he does Qurbaani of the animal that he bought or with another animal. In any way, it will be necessary for him to do Qurbaani.

THE PLACE IS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION, NOT THE RESIDENT

…..In Qurbaani, consideration is given to the place of the animal, not the person performing Qurbaani. If the Qurbaani animal is in such a village where Eid and Jumu’ah are not compulsory and the person performing Qurbaani is in a city, then in this case it will be permissible to make Qurbaani of the animal after Subh Saadiq in the village.

…..If the animal is in a city and the person performing the Qurbaani is in a village, then in this case, it will not be permissible to slaughter the animal until the Eid Salaat is not performed at one place in the city.

THERE IS MORE REWARD FOR SLAUGHTERING IN MINA

Qurbaani began in Mina. This is why it is more rewarding to make Qurbaani in Mina as compared to other places. It is for this reason that Rasulullaah (SAW) slaughtered 100 camels during Hajj, 63 he slaughtered himself and the rest he gave to Hadhrat Ali (RA). It is because of this virtue that he (SAW) made the Qurbaani of so many animals. Generally, Rasulullaah (SAW) used to make Qurbaani of two animals in Madinah Munawwarah.

NAHR (PIERCING)

Nahr is Sunnah for camels. Nahr refers to piercing the camel at the top part of the chest, close to the neck with a spear or knife so that the veins of the neck could be cut.
