Q: If an animal is born on Eid day, then is it permissible to slaughter it on next eid.


A: If the Qurbaani animal had delivered the young during the days of Qurbaani, then the young should be slaughtered with the mother. If the days of Qurbaani passed and the young was not slaughtered, it will be necessary to give it away alive in sadaqah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
