Frequent Asked Questions regarding Eid Qurbani in Dargah Sharif.

We are getting a lot of inquiries coming through of Eid Qurbani. We thought it would be a good idea to put the information here on the blog to benefit all devotees wishing to donate their Eid Qurbani through Ajmer Sharif Dargah in India.

What is Qurbani?

It’s the religious sacrifice of sheep, goats and cattle between the tenth and twelfth days of Dhul Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.

Qurbani is a sacred act to honour the tradition of the blessed Prophet Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) and their factual account of sacrifice and devotion to Allah (SWT). 

At What Age is Qurbani Farz?

Whether Qurbani is compulsory differs between different schools of thought, however, for the greater good of those less fortunate, Qurbani should be considered Farz for anyone who has reached the age of puberty and who poses wealth or makes a living from an earning.  

When Must Qurbani Be Performed?

It is advisable to give as early as possible to make sure you can give your Qurbani where you want it to go.

Qurbani must be performed on the 10th, 11th and 12th days of Dhul-Hijjah, the time of the festival of Eid ul-Adha. Eid ul-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid, Bakra Eid and Qurbani Eid changes in the Gregorian calendar each year. Eid ul-Adha 2021 and Qurbani preparations are anticipated to start in the evening of Monday 19th July 2021, ending on Friday 23rd July 2021, depending on the sighting of the moon. The time for Qurbani must be performed as close to the completion of Eid Salah as possible and not before, any sacrifice carried out before Eid Salah is considered Sadaqah. 

There are four days of sacrifice, the day of Eid-al-Adha and the three days after it.

Which Animals Can Be Sacrificed?

The animals which are eligible should meet minimum requirements, such as the age of the animal for Qurbani and their condition, including:

  • Sheep and goats at least one year in age (enough for one person’s Qurbani)
  • Cows or buffalo at least two years in age (enough for seven people’s Qurbani)
  • Camels of at least five years in age (enough for seven people’s Qurbani)

In addition, all animals must be healthy and free of disease, including the following conditions:

  • They must not be blind, one-eyed or have lost a third (or more) of their sight
  • They cannot be missing a third (or more) of their ear or tail, either through loss or since birth
  • Their horn(s) cannot be broken off from their root
  • They must not have a lame leg that is sufficiently weak that they are unable to walk on it
  • They cannot be excessively thin or lean
  • They must be able to walk themselves to the site of the slaughter
  • They cannot be toothless, or missing over half their teeth
  • There is no preference between male or female Qurbani animals. It is preferable that male Qurbani animals are castrated, but this is not compulsory
