6. During the Qurbani season, many farmers sell Qurbani animals to customers over the phone that haven’t seen the animal. Is such a transaction valid in Shariah?
|2||Validity of slaughtering a sheep that appears to be one year old for Qurbani||Thu 13 Sep 2018||
If a lamb is 5 months and 2 weeks old and it looks bigger or is equivalent to a one year old sheep, then can it be slaughtered for Qurbani?
What is the ruling for sheep regarding Qurbani?
A sheep has to be one-year-old for its Qurbānī to be valid. However, if it is six months old but appears to be one-year-old when left among the one-year sheep, its Qurbānī will also be valid. If the sheep doesn’t meet these requirements (as in your enquired case), its Qurbānī will not be valid.
