Q: How old must a sheep be for Qurbani? If the sheep still has milk teeth but looks older can it be sacrificed?

A: A sheep must be one year old, or a sheep which is so fat and healthy that it resembles a one year old sheep is also permissible for Qurbani. This only applies to sheep. A goat must be one year or older.
