SACRIFICE (PERFORMING THE QURBAN) [PART 6]

It is not permissible to give away the living animal of qurban or its value in money as alms. If one gives it as alms, one has to sacrifice a second one until the evening of the third day. A person who has not killed the qurban of ’Iyd or the vowed qurban by the evening of the third day gives the living animal or its value [in silver or gold] to the poor if he has bought the qurban animal. If he sacrifices it after the ’Iyd, he cannot eat from the meat; he gives it all to the poor. If the value of all the meat obtained from the animal is less than its value alive, he also gives the difference as alms. If he has not bought it he gives the value of a medium animal of qurban as alms to the poor. Thus he escapes punishment, but does not attain the thawab [1] for performing the qurban.

If the animal was imperfect before the purchase or if later it has been flawed with some imperfection disqualifying it from being a qurban though it was suitable for being killed as a qurban during the purchase, the rich person buys another and kills it (as the qurban). If the (animal bought for the) vowed qurban is imperfect both the rich person and the poor person sacrifice it. If the animal for the vowed qurban dies (before being sacrificed) they do not have to buy another one. It is not permissible to utilize the wool and the milk of an animal for qurban before it is sacrificed.
