UK Resident’s Permissibility to Send Qurbani Money to India

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


  1. A person who lives in the UK on whom Qurbani was Wajib but didn’t do Qurbani for some 4 years, will it be permissible for him to send money for Qurbani to India for 4 shares in big animal?
  2. In the above situation will it be permissible to send Sadaqah money to India the value of 4 parts in big animal in India?


A: For the missed years he needs to give the equivalent in cash to the poor and for this year he may instruct someone that his qurbaani be done in the country of his choice.

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

(و) تصدق (بقيمتها غنى شراها او لا) لتعلقها بذمته بشرائها اولا فالمراد بالقيمة قيمة شاة تجزى فيها. قال علامة ابن العابدين قوله (و تصدق بقيمتها غنى شراها او لا) كذا فى الهداية و غيرها كادرر و تعقبه الشيخ شاهين بان وجوب التصدق بالقيمة مقيد بما اذا لم يشتر اما اذا اشترى فهو مخير بين التصدق بالقيمة او التصدق بها حية كما فى الزيلعى ابو السعود واقول ذكر فى البدائع ان الصحيح ان الشاة المشتراة للاضحية اذا لم يضحّ بها حتى مضى الوقت يتصدق الموسر بعينها حية كالفقير بلا خلاف بين اصحابنا فان محمدا قال وهذا قول ابى حنيفة و ابى يوسف و قولنا اه (رد المحتار 6/321)
