Rules for Qurbani Meat Distribution

Qurbani is a religious requirement imposed on us by Allah (SWT). As a result, we must adhere to the Qurbani meat distribution norms and regulations. The norms and guidelines of Qurbani are summarised here.

  • Qurbani must be performed on the 10th, 11th, or 12th of Dhul-Hijjah.
  • Sacrifices are only permitted after the Eid prayer (previous sacrifices do not count as Qurbani).
  • Any capable Muslim should perform Qurbani, especially those who have achieved puberty and have the Nisab value.
  • Animals for sacrifice must be of a certain age and in good health.
  • Qurbani sacrifices must be made in three parts: one for yourself, one for family or friends, and one for the poor and those in need.

What exactly is Qurbani?

Qurbani is an annual Muslim tradition that involves an animal sacrifice in honour of the Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) willingness to sacrifice his son for the will of Allah (SWT). At the last moment, Allah (SWT) substituted a ram for Ibrahim’s (AS) son, saving his life and praising Ibrahim’s (AS) dedication. That is why Muslims do Qurbani, and by doing so, we assist underprivileged families and communities in receiving their fair share.

Who Is Required to Perform Qurbani?

Every Muslim is required to conduct Qurbani. The following are the only exceptions:

  • Those who do not have Nisab worth.
  • Those who are not of sound mind.
  • Those who haven’t reached or past puberty.
  • Those who travel more than the Shar’i limit

You may donate Qurbani on behalf of others, including the deceased; however, you are not required to supply Qurbani animals on behalf of your adult offspring, who can pay their own part.

Qurbani laws for cutting hair and nails state that those who are obligated to do so should do so only after the sacrifice has been made.

How Old Is Qurbani Fard?

Different schools of thought disagree on whether Qurbani is obligatory; yet, for the greater good of those less fortunate, Qurbani should be deemed Fard for anybody who has attained puberty and has the Nisab worth.

Who Is Eligible to Receive Qurbani Meat?

Meat from Qurbani animals should be divided into three equal pieces. It should be distributed among family members, friends, and the impoverished (both Muslim and non-Muslim). When performing Qurbani with a partner, the meat should be split by weight, not by estimation. You cannot pay the butcher for the butchered animal’s flesh, fat, or byproducts. The skin can be saved for personal use, but if it is sold, the proceeds must go to persons in need.

How Many Qurbani Are There in a Family?

Every capable Muslim should be able to contribute at least one Qurbani, which is then divided into three equal parts. A little animal, such as a sheep or goat, is an example of a Qurbani. Camel, cow, and buffalo are larger animals that can count for up to seven people’s Qurbani. The Qurbani guidelines for a husband and woman state that they may make a joint donation, but the animal must be large enough for each individual to donate their obligatory part. A larger animal worth seven shares is commonly donated by homes, but it is not required.

When Is Qurbani Required?

Qurbani must be performed on the 10th, 11th, or 12th days of Dhul-Hijjah, during the Eid ul-Adha holiday. Each year, the Gregorian calendar changes the date of Eid ul-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid, Bakra Eid, and Qurbani Eid. Eid ul-Adha 2023 and Qurbani preparations are expected to begin on Wednesday, June 28 and end on Sunday, July 2, depending on moon sightings. Qurbani must be performed as soon to the end of Eid Salah as possible, but not before. Sadaqah is any sacrifice performed prior to Eid Salah.

What Kinds of Animals Can Be Sacrificed?

The animals that are qualified must meet basic conditions, such as their age for Qurbani and their condition, which includes:

  • Sheep and goats should be at least a year old (enough for one Qurbani).
  • Cows or buffalo must be at least two years old (enough for the Qurbani of seven people).
  • Camels must be at least five years old (enough for the Qurbani of seven persons).

How Are Qurbani Animals Sacrificed?

To comply with Qurbani festival requirements, slaughterers and slaughterhouses must follow the following guidelines:

  • To minimise causing unnecessary suffering, the animal should be murdered with a keen knife.
  • Sharpening the knife in front of the animal is not permitted.
  • In the presence of another animal, no animal should be slaughtered.
  • It is preferable to slaughter the animal personally, but if you do not know how, you should remain present while someone else does so. When slaughtering the animal, the phrase “Bismillahi Allahu Akbar” must also be said. Skinned animals should not be skinned until they are entirely cold.
