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?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
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.
Only Allah knows best
