THE PERSON PERFORMING QURBAANI PASSES AWAY BEFORE QURBAANI

…..If the person performing Qurbaani passes away during the days of Qurbaani before performing Qurbaani, then the Qurbaani falls off him, on condition that the person is wealthy, not a poor person. It will be better if the heirs are mature and they all make Qurbaani on behalf of the deceased.

…..If a poor person bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani and before slaughtering the animal during the days of Qurbaani, he passed away, then the Qurbaani does not fall off. It is necessary for his heirs to slaughter that animal.

QADHA OF QURBAANI

…..If the day of Qurbaani passed and if a person did not perform Qurbaani due to ignorance, negligence or neglect, then it is compulsory upon him to give the value of the Qurbaani to the poor and needy. However, the obligation of Qurbaani will not be fulfilled if a person gives the value of the animal in charity during the three days of Qurbaani, such a person will be a sinner because Qurbaani is a separate form of worship. Just as fasting is not done by a person performing Salaat, and Salaat is not done by a person keeping fast, Hajj is not done by a person giving Zakaat. Similarly, Qurbaani is not done by a person giving charity.

…..If a person did not make most of the Qurbaanis of his life and Qurbaani was compulsory upon him, he should now give the value of one share of Qurbaani for every year (that he missed).

IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE QURBAANI DURING THE DAYS OF QURBAANI

It is necessary to slaughter the Qurbaani animal during the days of Qurbaani. It is not sufficient to give the amount (of it) in charity, to make someone perform Hajj or help a poor person. A person will get the reward of doing those actions but he will be sinful for not performing Qurbaani. In the case where the days of Qurbaani passed, then it is necessary to give the value of one share of Qurbaani in charity.

A DOUBT OCCURRED DURING THE DAYS OF QURBAANI

If there is doubt with regards to the days of Qurbaani, then a person should not delay the Qurbaani until the third day. He should do the Qurbaani by the second day. If he delayed until the third day, then it is better to give all the meat in charity.

EID SALAAT IS SUFFICIENT FOR QURBAANI

…..If the Eid Salaat is performed anywhere in the city, it will be permissible to slaughter the Qurbaani animal. If the person making Qurbaani did not perform the Eid Salaat but the Eid Salaat was performed in any Masjid of the city, then in this case it will be permissible to make Qurbaani without performing the Salaat because it is not a condition for the person performing Qurbaani to complete the Eid Salaat. It is sufficient if the Salaat was performed in the Masjid or the Eid Gaah (Musallah).

…..If the Eid Salaat was performed in one part of the city but it has not been performed in another part, then too it will be permissible to slaughter the Qurbaani animal.

THE PERSON MAKING QURBAANI PASSES AWAY

If a person bought an animal for Qurbaani and he passed away during Ayyaam un Nahr before making Qurbaani, then that animal will become part of the estate of the deceased and the heirs will be entitled to it. Now, if the heirs want to make Qurbaani of it as Isaal e Thawaab for the deceased, they can do so. The deceased will get the reward, otherwise it is not compulsory upon them to slaughter that animal.

TESTICLES

It is Makruh Tahreemi to eat the testicles of the animal and the testicles of an animal that was not slaughtered is Haraam.

TILLER

If a tiller has an amount of animals over and above his tools that equals or is more than nisaab, then Qurbaani is compulsory upon him. It is compulsory to make one share of Qurbaani. If he is not in these circumstances and he has no other wealth, then Qurbaani is not compulsory upon him.

THE RULING PERTAINING TO THE QURBAANI OF PREVIOUS YEARS

The Qurbaani of previous years remain upon a person. It is compulsory to give the value of the animal in charity. If a person took two shares in a big animal, one share for the previous year and one for this year, then the Qurbaani of every partner will be fulfilled. However, the Qurbaani of this year will be fulfilled, but the Qurbaani done with the intention of Qadhaa will not be done. It will stand as optional. It will be necessary to give the value of a goat in charity for the Qadhaa of the previous year’s Qurbaani.

ANIMALS THAT HAVE WORN OUT TEETH

If the teeth of an animal is worn out and it has joined the gums, but it has the ability to eat grass, then it is valid to make Qurbaani of it. If the animal does not have the ability to eat grass, then it is not permissible to use it for Qurbaani.

EID SALAAT WAS PERFORMED ON THE 11TH OR 12TH

If the Eid Salaat could not be performed on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah due to a curfew, strong winds, rain, hurricanes and rain etc., but it was performed on the 11th or 12th, then in this case it will be permissible to make Qurbaani before the Eid Salaat.

A TRAVELLER

…..It is not compulsory upon a traveller to make Qurbaani. If he wants to make Qurbaani out of his own happiness, then he can do so. He will be rewarded.

…..If a traveller has wealth and he can make Qurbaani easily, then it is Mustahab to make Qurbaani.

…..If a traveller came to his home or became a resident and he became capable during the days of Qurbaani – before sunset of the 12th of Dhul Hijjah, then Qurbaani is compulsory upon him. If he is not capable, but he is poor, then Qurbaani is not compulsory upon him. However, if he bought an animal with the intention of Qurbaani during the days of Qurbaani, then Qurbaani of that very animal is compulsory.
