Qurbani, Aqeeqa & Slaughtering Animals
I have heard some people and also some Alims say that don’t give away your Qurbani meat to anyone, eat it yourself. Is it right?
In Australia, almost all sheep have their tails docked (removed) in order to reduce the build-up of faeces which can encourage fly strike (wool maggots). Now, in the Fiqh books it is mentioned that if an animal has a third or more of its tail removed, it is not permissible to use such an animal for qurbani (udhiyya); otherwise the qurbani will be invalid. The question is: Does that mean that it is not permissible to do qurbani of sheep in Australia?
_I have been living in Bahrain for the past two years...Since I came here I am not satisfied with the halal status of frozen chicken sold in the supermarkets for three reasons...
_ The local farms like ------------- have their own system of slaughtering chicken. The personnel who slaughter the chicken there recite "bismillahi allahuakbar" on the first few chickens during the beginning of their shifts and do not recite on the rest. Will all the chicken slaughtered this way be considered Halal or only those on which Bismillah was recited?
I want to do qurbani for my deceased father. Can I make intention of sending the reward of one qurbani to multiple people?
Is it permissible to do qurbani on a wild animal like a cow that has been shot and then run away and later found dead?
A cow is being shared for Qurbani. Is it obligatory to weigh all the shares before the people doing Qurbani take their shares? If the shares are not weighed but mutually agreed by all not to weigh, is the Qurbani valid for all people?
1. I was always brought up with the notion that when we give Qurban we can take one third of the potion for ourselves, share another one third of the potion with our family and friends (Muslims) and we have to give the last one third to the poor. Firstly can you please confirm if this is correct? If not what is the correct distribution portion and who are the eligible people? I ask this question because we are finding it hard to classify who are the poor Muslims in Melbourne / Australia.
2. Is it permissible to use Qurban meat to have a BBQ in order to raise funds which will be used to service the local Muslim community or even donate to the local masjid?
I am a revert. During a name giving ceremony, I observed that the baby's head was made wet with water. This reminded me of the Christian baptism ceremony. Can you please tell me what is the significance of this and why it is done? Shukran
1) Will an animal be halal if it is stunned before being slaughtered? 2) Is mechanical slaughter of an animal permissible?
