WHAT ARE THE QURBAN CONDITIONS FOR THE ANIMAL?
The sacrificial animal should be the best one, old enough, and without any defect. Rasulullah (PBUH) says:
“Four types of animals are unlawful to be sacrificed:
1. Having defective eyes;
2. Having illness;
3. Limping; and
4. Skinny with no fats.”
(Bukhari and Muslim)
Another Hadith reported:
“Do not slaughter but a Musinnah. If it is too hard for you (to get it), then slaughter a Jadza’ah (one year of age or more) from among the sheep.” (HR Muslim).
