Q. If I take a vow to sacrifice an animal when my father recovers from his illness, can I partake of its meat?
A. It will not be permissible to partake of the meat of an animal if one had vowed to slaughter it. The meat of such an animal must be distributed amongst poor and needy Zakat recipients. (Binaayah 12/51)
