Qurbani

Qurbani through an Agent

E-mail Print PDF

Q: In regards to qurbani, the charity advises that they do not say you your name at time of slaughtering due to the number of people that donate they do not have time. Is this still permissible? I'm not to sure as it does not state and this is the same with most of the charities. Here locally in Australia nobody slaughters themselves and is generally done through a charity or butcher. I was told that I am make the niyah for qurbani once paid and once passed to the charity it is their responsibility to complete. Some say that have to mention your name at time of slaughtering but then some say due to the volume of people donating this is impossible to do so, it is not required. No major charity that I have found says your name at time slaughter.

A:
Your query regarding the above subject was referred to me by my colleague. Here is your answer:

When you give money to an agency or organisation that will execute the Qurbani on your behalf, then you have made that person your wakeel or agent. Thereafter when the agent slaughters the animal that was purchased with your money, automatically the Qurbani is done on your behalf, even if the agent had not taken your name. Therefore, it is necessary that you intend making the agency your wakeel at the time of giving them the money. It is written in the fatwa books of former senior Muftis that when seven people have shares in one cow, and they appoint someone else (who has no shares in that cow) as their agent to execute the Qurbani then such a sacrifice is valid and acceptable even if the slaughterer did not take the names of the shareholders in that cow.

I therefore assure you that you may hand your money over to the organisation of your choice and intend making them your wakeel to fulfil the Qurbani. It will be valid, insha Allah.

Child Performing Qurbani

Q: If an eight year old child insists on paying for his own Qurbani can you eat from it?

A:
If the parents pay for the Qurbani then anyone can eat from it.

If it is paid from the wealth of the child then the child can eat from it, the person who takes care of the child (Nanny, caregiver) and the parents.

No one else will be allowed to eat from it. (Jaami'u Ahkaamis Sighaar P186 V2).

Qurbani Animal and Leg Problem

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Our animal we bought for Qurbani has a problem in one leg. He can stand properly but he is not able to walk comfortably. Can we make Qurbani of such an animal?

A:
If it can use that leg slightly and the leg is not completely useless, then Qurbani will be valid. If that leg is completely useless then Qurbani will not be valid.

Wife doing Qurbani

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I am a house wife. My husband gives me pocket money. I also have jewellery. I want to know whether I must do qurbani with my pocket money or my husband can do with his money?

A:
You can do it with your own money. If he does it then he first has to inform you that he will be doing it from his money and you will give your permission.
