What is Qurbani of a cow?

A cow is one animal that can be slaughtered for Qurbani during the days of Eid-ul-adha.

Qurbani is a religious sacrifice of sheep, cattle, or goats which is made after Eid al Adha prayers, between the 10th and 12th days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.

In commemorating the sacrifice of the Prophet Ibrahim (as), our Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) would offer his Qurbani and then offer another on behalf of his ummah and those that could not afford to do it themselves. At Al Mustafa Welfare, we invite you to revive this beautiful sunnah of the Prophetic Qurbani.

Give two Qurbanis for £40, one for yourself and one on behalf of somebody whose circumstances do not allow them to do it for themselves.

On the authority of Kathir bin Abdullah, it is reported that Prophet Muhammad (saw) said, “Whoever revives a Sunnah of mine that dies out after I am gone, he will have a reward equivalent to that of those among the people who act upon it, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest.” (Ibn Majah)

How many Qurbani shares are there for a cow?

A cow is divided into seven parts. An individual can purchase any number of parts or a whole cow for Qurbani. One individual must provide either one part of a large animal (cow or camel), or a whole small animal (goat).

“There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgment with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart” [Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

How do you sacrifice a cow in Islam?

We follow Sharia in order to procure the meat for Qurbani. We ensure that in every place we conduct Qurbani, the following takes place:

  • A healthy animal is sacrificed 
  • The animal is older than one year in age
  • The meat is of a good quality that has not been stunned in the slaughter process and is safe for human consumption

With the sacrifice of the cow and other animals, we strictly adhere to Islamic guidelines to ensure the meat is halal and the animal does not suffer. The animal is sacrificed in a clean place away from other animals, with a sharp blade used with a single, swift action. The slaughter process is outlined in the Qur’an and is centred on ensuring the animal does not suffer, and is treated with dignity and respect.
