Eid-al-adha 2017 is coming near and if you have a question in mind that who should give qurbani than you are at right place. Here we would discuss who are eligibal for qurbani. As i am not a religious scholar therefore i will do some research and would write here the points that i found online.
Also i would be adding some informative links that would further help you. There are many websites where Ulama have already answered this question. But to save your precious time i have collected the data and added here. And for references added the links as well so that you can confirm from the scholars.
What is Qurbani:
In English qurbani means sarifice. During Eid ul adha Muslims give qurbani in the memory of the sacrifice story of Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS). If you don’t know about that story then don’t worry. You don’t need to go and search because i have already written it. Here you can find eid al adha sacrifice story in english, hindi, urdu and arabic.
So the Muslims do this qurbani in the memory of Ibrahim (AS) and then distribute the meat among poor people and relatives. This eid is full of many lessons and we learn the most important lesson of sacrifice for Allah, helping poor and sharing.
Benefits Of Qurbani:
As already mentioned, this eid shows as the lessons of sacrifice, helping and sharing.
Eligibility For Eid Al Adha Qurbani?
Ok so the first thing that i got from a very authentic source says that every male and female who earn more then their needs should give qurbani means that those who are eligibal for zakat would also be eligebal for eid al adha qurbani as well.
Requirements Of Qurbani:
The animals to be slaughtered have to be a goat, sheep, cattle (cow, ox, water buffalo), or camel. Goats and sheep must be as a minimum 365 days antique.For cows the age ought to be at least two years old. Camels should be as a minimum 5 years vintage. Goats and sheep depend as one proportion in keeping with animal. Farm animals and camels depend as seven stocks in keeping with animal.
They need to be free from any form of handicap together with blind, unwell, limp and undernourished. It also should be free of any defects which includes a reduce-off ear, tail, damaged enamel,or broken horn. But, the goat/sheep may be used if only some enamel are broken and most enamel are nevertheless intact. Similarly, if its horn is broken midway and no longer from the root, it is permissible to use such an animal. Injuries sustained at some point of the qurbani do not invalidate the qurbani.
The animals need to be slaughtered in the right humane methods. It must be executed with the aid of a Muslim adhering to the Islamic way of slaughtering the animal.
So this was my short research about who should give qurbani at eid ul adha. I hope that you would have liked it.
