Wajib Qurban

Wajib Qurban

Now, Let’s Send a Qurbani to Africa Through You.

With our experienced team at ASUM UK, we meticulously manage every detail of the sacrificial donation process, from obtaining proxies to delivering the meat to those in need. In African countries, we ensure adherence to Islamic sensitivities as we sacrifice obligatory, vow, Aqiqah, gratitude, and other voluntary animals.

Qurban Organization Step by Step

  • Qurbans are selected by the officials in accordance with Islamic procedures.
  • The real needy people to be distributed qurban meat are identified by the staff.
  • Your qurban registration and written proxy are taken by the staff.
  • On the days of Eid al-Adha, your qurbans are slaughtered and distributed to those in need.
  • SMS and video feedbacks about the qurban slaughter are sent to you.

Sacrificing an animal is obligatory (wajib) for free and resident (non-traveling) Muslim men and women who are wealthy enough to be liable for paying the fitrah (almsgiving).

Sacrificing an animal is obligatory (wajib). For it is stated in a hadith: “If a person has the means to perform the sacrifice but does not do so, let that person not come near our mosque (i.e., to us).”

The sacrifice is fulfilled only by slaughtering an animal that is suitable for sacrifice.

If you are a free, resident (non-traveling) Muslim who is wealthy enough to pay the fitrah (almsgiving), then it is obligatory (wajib) for you to perform the sacrifice.

The nisab of sacrifice (i.e., the amount of wealth required for sacrifice to become obligatory) is to possess wealth equivalent to the obligation of giving fitr charity (fitrah). It is not necessary for this wealth to have increased through commerce as in the case of the zakat nisab, nor is it necessary for a year to have passed. If a person becomes wealthy at the end of the days designated for sacrifice, it becomes obligatory for them to immediately perform the sacrifice.

The animals designated for sacrifice are sheep, goat, cow, buffalo (câmûs), and camel. Sheep and goats are sacrificed at one year of age, cattle and buffaloes at two years, and camels at five years. However, if a lamb becomes big enough and cannot be distinguished from a one-year-old sheep, it can be sacrificed once it completes six months. Sheep and goats cannot be shared. One sheep or goat is sacrificed for one person. One cow, buffalo, or camel is sacrificed for seven people. This means that seven people can collectively sacrifice one cow or camel. The partners can be odd, even, or fewer than seven.

  1. Purchasing the animal to be sacrificed before the days of sacrifice and feeding it.
  2. Transporting the animal to the place of slaughter with respect.
  3. If capable, personally performing the slaughter.
  4. If unable to perform the slaughter personally, appointing a competent person as a proxy and being present during the slaughter.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “O Fatimah, rise and witness the sacrifice being made. For with the first drop of blood that falls, every sin you have committed will be forgiven and pardoned.”
