IF AN AMOUNT IS LEFT OVER IN COLLECTIVE QURBAANI

….. It will be necessary to return to the owners any such sum which is left over when making collective Qurbaani. Without the clear consent of the participants, it will not be permissible for those conducting the collective Qurbaani to withhold any such sum of money left over.

Yes, if those who conducting the collective Qurbaani want to take a fee for their efforts then this has to be specified beforehand in order for them to take such an amount and not after the Qurbaani is made.

EMPLOYEES OF INSURANCE COMPANIES

….. The basis of insurance is either interest or gambling and earning from both interest and gambling are Haraam. Therefore, to make Qurbaani with Haraam income is also not permissible. Thus, it will not be valid to include such a partner in collective or shared Qurbaani who earns only or mostly from an insurance company.

Yes, if such people possess Halaal wealth as well and such wealth is not mixed with their Haraam wealth it will be in order to make Qurbaani with such Halaal wealth. Alternately they should borrow money from someone with which to make Qurbaani. In both the latter cases their Qurbaani will be permissible.

AN ANIMAL BOUGHT ON CREDIT

….. It is not valid to make Qurbaani with an animal bought on credit because it is the possession of someone else.

ONE OF THE SHAREHOLDERS DIES

….. Seven people got together and purchased a Qurbaani animal in which they each have share but before the Qurbaani is made, one of them passes away and the heirs of the deceased person gives the shareholders in the Qurbaani animal permission to go ahead and make the Qurbaani on his behalf along with their own, it will be permissible to do so and all their Qurbaani will deem to have been performed.

If they make Qurbaani without the permission of the heirs, then it is not valid and none of the shareholders’ Qurbaani will be done.

SLAUGHTERING A COW

Slaughtering a cow is proven from the Qur’aan and Hadith. Seven people can form a partnership in it.

IF THERE IS RESTRICTIONS ON SLAUGHTERING COWS

In India and in other countries where Hindus rule, there are restrictions upon slaughtering cows. In such areas and localities, Muslims should not make Qurbaani of cows, but they should make Qurbaani of male and female goats, male and female sheep, buffalos, bulls and camels. This is so that fitnah, fighting and trouble are not created. However, if someone did slaughter a cow despite all this, then the Qurbaani will be valid and the responsibility will be fulfilled.

IT IS NOT VALID TO STOP SOMEONE FROM SLAUGHTERING A COW

It is impermissible and Haraam for a Muslim to agree with non Muslims in such things which entail the destruction and dishonouring of the outstanding characteristics of Islaam. It is not permissible for a Muslim to agree or back non Muslims in stopping others from slaughtering cows because in it lays the destruction of Islaam. The person who supports the non Muslims in the destruction of Islaam cannot remain a Muslim.

PERFORMING QURBAANI CHANGING THE NAME

Some people make Qurbaani one year on their name and the next year they make Qurbaani on their wife’s name, i.e. every year they change the person’s name. This is not valid. If the person making Qurbaani is a sahib-e-nisaab, then it is necessary that he makes Qurbaani for himself. If he does not make in his name, and he makes in the name of someone else, then the responsibility of Qurbaani remains on him. One’s own Qurbaani is not done by making Qurbaani in another person’s name.

DUAA

….. On laying the animal down facing the Qiblah, it is better to recite this verse:

إنى وجهت وجهى للذى فطر السموت والأرض حنيفا وما أنا من المشركين ان صلاتى ونسكى ومحياى ومماتى لله رب العالمين

Just before slaughtering, recite this Duaa:

اللهم منك ولك

Then say:   بسم الله الله اكبر and slaughter the animal. After slaughtering recite this Duaa:

اللهم تقبله منى كما اقبلت من حبيبك محمد وخليلك ابراهيم عليهما الصلاة والسلام

If one is slaughtering on behalf of someone else then instead of “منى” say فلان” mentioning the name of the person.

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO RECITE THE DUAA

….. It is not compulsory to recite the above mentioned Duaa when slaughtering Qurbaani animal but is better to do so. If one slaughters the animal after reciting, “                   ” the Qurbaani will be in order and eating the meat will be permissible.

IT IS NECESSARY TO SAY “بسم الله الله أكبر” AT THE TIME OF SLAUGHTERING

It is necessary for the slaughterer to say بسم الله الله اكبر . It is not necessary to recite the Du’aa of intention. A person should make the intention in his heart that ‘I am making Qurbaani’. It is sufficient.
