SOMETHING GIVEN ON RENT

If a person gives something on rent and its value equals or is more than nisaab, then it is compulsory upon him to slaughter one share of Qurbaani because something given on rent is over and above one’s basic needs as long as it is on rent.

A RARE MOMENT FOR THE RICH

It is appropriate for the wealthy that wherever they make Qurbaani for themselves, they should make on behalf of their relatives, like their parents and send the reward to them. A person can make on behalf of Rasulullaah (SAW), his spouses, the Khulafaa e Raashidin, the leaders of the Muslims and for ones mentors and teachers.

 SKIN AILMENTS

….. Qurbaani of an animal which has a skin disease which does not reach the meat is sound but if the disease or sore reaches the meat, Qurbaani with such an animal will not be valid.

SHARES

….. Big animals like, cows, oxen, buffaloes and camels are made up of seven shares. Therefore, seven people can get together and divide a big animal into seven shares and each of them makes their Qurbaani in this one animal. The condition for this is that no shareholder’s share be less than a single share and that each one’s intention is to make Qurbaani or Aqiqah. The intention must not be merely to eat the meat or feed it to other people. If any person’s share is less than a single full share, the Qurbaani will not be in order.

….. The way in which a share is less than required is when there are more than seven shareholders in a single big animal. For example, eight people have shares in a single big animal as a result of which each person’s share will be less than one full share or one seventh of the animal due to which not a single person’s Qurbaani will be fulfilled. Even if a shareholder takes half or a third or less than his allotted share, then too, the Qurbaani will not be valid.

HOLDING THE KNIFE ALONG WITH THE SLAUGHTERER

….. When a person holds the knife along with the person that is actually slaughtering, it is Waajib for that person to recite “Bismillah Allahu Akbar” otherwise the animal will be Haraam and eating its meat will not be permissible. This is not the case with those who are assisting by holding the feet, head etc.

THE TAKBEERAAT-E-TASHREEQ

….. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Lailaha Illalahu Wallahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Walillahil Hamd

….. It is Waajib to recite this Takbeer at least once from after the Fajr Salaah of the ninth Zil Hijjah to the Asr of the thirteenth Zil Hijjah immediately after the Fardh Salaah.

….. Males should recite it aloud while ladies should recite it softly.

….. The Takbeer-e-Tashreeq should be recited immediately after the Salaam so much so that if one talks or intentionally breaks one’s Wudhu, the Takbeer-e-Tashreeq lapses.

…..If a Salaat was missed during the days of Tashreeq and it was performed in that very year during the days of Tashreeq, then in this case too, it is necessary to say the Takbeer after making Salaam after the Fardh Salaat.

…..It is necessary upon a Muqeem (resident) to recite the Takbeer e Tashreeq. Similarly, it is also necessary upon the Musaafir (traveller) due to following a Muqeem.

…..It is Waajib upon those who are performing Salaat with Jama’ah as well as those performing alone, men and women to recite the Tabeer e Tashreeq.

IT IS WAAJIB TO SAY THE TAKBEER-E-TASHREEQ ONCE

….. It is Waajib to say the Takbeer-e-Tashreeq once. To say it more than this is not Waajib.

THE QADHA OF TAKBEER-E-TASHREEQ

…..If a person forgets to recite the words of Takbeer-e-Tashreeq after the Fardh Namaaz there is no Qadha for it later on. It will be necessary to make Taubah so that the sin can be forgiven.

BY RECITING THE TAKBEER THE ANIMAL BECOMES HALAAL

….. Once the animal is slaughtered after having recited “Bismillah Allahu Akbar” in whatever position the slaughtered animal will be Halaal even if the knife was passed over the throat while standing. If the one slaughtering is not punctual with his Namaaz and does not keep his fasts but is a Muslim and if while slaughtering he ensures that the appropriate veins are severed, the animal will become Halaal.

SLAUGHTERING BY ONE WHO IS ILLEGITIMATE

….. If an illegitimate individual is a Muslim, it will be permissible to eat of the animal slaughtered by him. Eating such meat is permissible.

DRAGGING UPSIDE DOWN

….. It is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi to drag the animal by the back legs towards the front to the place of slaughtering.

SAY ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’ AND SLAUGHTERING

….. Reciting ‘Allahu Akbar’ only when slaughtering an animal makes it Halaal and permissible for consumption but is contrary to the Sunnah. Therefore, one should recite, ‘Bismillah Allahu Akbar’ before slaughtering the animal.

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO SAY ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’

….. It is sufficient to say, ‘Bismillah’ at the time of slaughtering and it is not necessary to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ although saying, ‘Bismillahi Allahu Akbar’ is in keeping with the Sunnah.

SLAUGHTERING SEVEN GOATS INSTEAD OF ONE

….. If Qurbaani is Waajib on a person and instead of slaughtering one goat he decides to slaughter seven goats, his Waajib Qurbaani will be offset by slaughtering one and the remaining six will be considered as Nafl Qurbaani but if instead of dividing a large animal into seven shares, a person makes Qurbaani of such an animal on his own, then the entire animal will deemed as his Waajib Qurbaani.

FORGETTINGTO SAY BISMILLAH

….. Even if a person forgot to recite, “ بسم الله الله اكبر ” and slaughtered an animal, then too, its meat will be Halaal and it is permissible to eat it. This is because it will be accepted that the one slaughtering it on the basis of being a Muslim does not slaughter on any name besides the name of Allaah .

THE WORDS OF BISMILLAAH

….. At the time of slaughtering there is “Bismillah wa Allahu Akbar” with a letter ‘Waw’ as well as “Bismillah Allahu Akbar” without the letter ‘Waw’. It is better to recite it without a ‘Waw’. Then again, at some places “Allahu Akbar” comes before “Bismillah” while at others it comes after. All these different forms are permissible.

HOW BISMILLAH MUST BE READ

….. Zabah (slaughtering) is an action which is done by exercising one’s choice and to recite “Bismillaah” precisely when slaughtering is conditional. Thus, one has to slaughter while reciting “Bismillah”. Nothing else should be done before reciting “Bismillaah” so much so, that if a person lays the animal down and recites “Bismillah” then leaves that animal alive after which he slaughters another animal with the same “Bismillah” he had recited for the first animal, it will not be permissible to eat that slaughtered animal.

RECITNG BISMILLAH FOR ALL SHAREHOLDERS

….. It is not necessary to recite “Bismillah” separately for each shareholder in an animal being slaughtered for Qurbaani. It is necessary only for the person doing the actual slaughtering or the person applying his strength to the hand of the one holding the knife to recite “Bismillah”. It is not necessary for the person taking part in the Qurbaani or for those holding the legs of the animal to recite “Bismillah”.
