Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Is it according to sharah, to bye a goat (Bakra or Dumba) by sharing money between two brothers for Qurbani?

 

In other words which animals are eligible for Qurabni by sharing money as we do in Cow or Camel? 

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Can one share money for goat sacrifice

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Your Question: Is it according to sharah, to bye a goat (Bakra or Dumba) by sharing money between two brothers for Qurbani?

Al-Muwatta Hadith 23.10

Yahya related from Malik from Umara ibn Yasar that Ata ibn Yasar told him that Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (a companion of the Prophet (saws)) had told him, "We used to sacrifice one sheep, and a man sacrificed for himself and his family.

 

Although one may offer a sacrifice individually, the better way and the Sunnah is to offer the sacrifice from a house or household. Thus if the two brothers are living together in one house, there is no harm sacrificing one goat or sheep for the whole household.

 

But if the two brothers are living separately, then it is not preferable for them to share the price of one sacrifice of a goat or a sheep; but if they wish to share, then the sacrificial animal must be a cow or a camel, which may be shared by a maximum of seven people.

 

Your Question: In other words which animals are eligible for Qurabni by sharing money as we do in Cow or Camel? 

Al-Muwatta Hadith 23.9

Yahya related from Malik from Abu'z-Zubayr al-Makki that Jabir ibn Abdullah said, "We sacrificed with the Messenger of Allah (saws) in the year of Hudaybiya, a camel between seven people, and a cow between seven people."

 

Because the qurbani is done per household, every member of the house will have a share of the rewards of the sacrifice.

 

But if people living in different houses wish to pool their money for one sacrifice, then they should sacrifice either a cow or a camel, which may be shared by a maximum of seven people or seven households.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
