Fixing the Shares of a Large Animal in Qurbani

CategoriesHajj & Umrah [175]

Fatwa ID: 04500

Answered by: Maulana Imran Mughal



In a large animal Qurbani, do all seven shares need to be fixed before purchase, or can the seven shares be sold over a few days?

It will be better for a person to have seven shares decided before purchasing the animal, however, it will still be considered permissible if he did so afterward.[1]
