Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Sofia Mirza


A goat has an eye infection The questioner says that he consulted farmers, they say that It is temporarily blinded, generally for 10-15 days. Can it be slaughtered for Qurbani?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The animal that is blind in more than one-third of its eyesight is lost cannot be used for Qurbani [1]. If the goat has lost one-third of its eyesight even if it is temporarily lost, it cannot be given for slaughter until it recovers.

Only Allah knows best
