Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
I bought a sheep (ewe) to offer as a sacrifice and it gave birth shortly before it was due to be slaughtered. What should I do with its offspring?.

Praise be to Allaah.
The udhiyah is that which is bought specifically for the purpose of sacrifice or is singled out for that purpose, so it gives birth before the time of slaughter, then slaughter the offspring along with it.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
