Qurbani is a highly rewarded act of devotion and submission to Allah (SWT). Several rules must be followed to ensure that an animal can be accepted as Qurbani when it is slaughtered. These guidelines apply to both those who are giving Qurbani and the animal to be slaughtered.

Qurbani Rules Muslims Should Follow

  • Qurbani is obligatory for all adult Muslims who have extra money equal to or more than the current nisab level (612.36 grams of silver or 87.48 grams of gold). In other words, Those who must pay Zakat are also obligated for Qurbani.
  • Qurbani should take place on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah after Eid Salah. Sacrificing Qurbani before the Eid Salah is considered an ordinary charity (Sadaqah), not a Qurbani. So, it is essential to follow time to perform Qurbani.
  • You must refrain from trimming your nails and hair if you give Qurbani. Some scholars recommend trimming hair and nails before Dhul Hijjah. Otherwise, wait until after performing Qurbani.
  • If a husband and wife earn independently and possess wealth more than their needs, then both must donate a minimum of one Qurbani each.
  • If you missed the previous Qurbani, which was compulsory for you, calculate the previous Qurbanis and donate the total number of Qurbani shares. Donate all missed Qurbani to Al Mustafa, and we'll perform them on your behalf.

Qurbani Rules for Choosing Animals

The first rule is selecting animals eligible for Qurbani: sheep, goats, cows, buffaloes, and camels.

Age Requirements :

Once chosen, ensure sheep and goats are at least one year old, while cows and buffaloes must be at least two years old. Camels require a minimum age of five years. Animals meeting these age criteria qualify for Qurbani.

Animal Health:

Animals chosen for Qurbani must be in good health: free from sickness, thinness, and any defects like lameness, broken limbs, horns, teeth, or blindness.

Qurbani Rules for Slaughtering Animals :

The slaughtering process should be humane and follow these Qurbani rules:

  • The animal must meet all eligibility criteria.
  • Use a sharp knife to minimize pain and suffering.
  • Avoid sharpening the knife in front of the animal.
  • Do not slaughter one animal within sight of another.
  • Recite "Bismillahi Allahu Akbar" during the sacrifice..
  • The animal's body must be completely cool before skinning.
