Assalamualaikum, I have a question for you on behalf of a friend who bought some animals for slaughter – If they have scars from being sheared can we slaughter them?



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most-Kind




Animals that have some form of a natural defect are not valid to be used as Qurbani. These are defects such as a horn missing, being blind, having teeth missing or a leg missing, and so forth. [[1]]

Therefore, some scars from shearing will not render the sacrificial animal invalid and your friend may use this animal for Qurbani.



Only Allah knows best.
