- When should we give for Qurbani?
It is recommended to give Qurbani as early as possible.
The time for performing the sacrifice begins after the Eid prayer on Eid al-Adha and ends when the sun sets on the 13th of Dhu’l-Hijjah. So there are four days of sacrifice: the day of Eid al-Adha and the three days after it.
- Do I have to perform Qurbani on behalf of my children?
This depends on the school of thought that you follow. Please consult your local imam/sheikh.
Qurbani is obligatory on:
- every sane, mature adult (one who has reached puberty) Muslim
- who is not a traveller
- who can afford its cost, and is eligible to pay Zakat
Animals have shares. Sheep and goats have one share each, while camels and cattle have seven shares each.
So for one person, Qurbani is fulfilled with a sheep or a goat. Up to seven people can share in the purchase of a cow or a camel, and the sacrifice will be made for the seven.
A small animal (sheep or goat) = 1 Qurbani
A large animal (Cattle) = 7 Qurbanis
You can share as many Qurbanis as you want – for example two or three shares in a cow - and on behalf of as many individuals as you like, including those who have passed away.
