بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد


1. The time:

The time-frame for slaughtering is four days:

- The first day after the Eid prayer.
- Which continues for three days after it, till sunset on the 13th (of Dhul-Hijjah).
- It is permissible to slaughter in the day as well as the night.

[Fataawa Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله (25/167)]

2. In the first 10 days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah, it is not permissible for the one who wants to make the sacrificial offering to:

- Cut his hair.
- Shorten his nails.
- Remove the (dead) skin.
- As for the family of this sacrificer, then it is permissible for them to cut their hair, shorten their nails and remove the skin.

[Fataawa al-Lajnah (11/397)]

3. The age of the sacrificial animal:

- Camel: 5 years.
- Cow: 2 years.

4. The defects that would prevent the sacrificial animal from being valid and acceptable:

- Clear defectiveness of the eyes (blind in either one of its eyes or any other clear defect of the eyes).
- The sick animal which shows sign of severe illness.
- A crippled/lame animal.
- Emaciation animal that has no marrow (in its bones) and that which causes brain loss due to its slimness and weakness.
- Any defects which are similar to this or severe than this come under this prohibition.

6. Some people believe that if the one who intends to offer the sacrifice were to cut his hair or shorten his nails or remove the skin during these 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah, then his sacrifice will not be accepted.

This belief is incorrect.

[Fataawa Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله (25/161)]

7. It is forbiddn to sell something from the sacrificial animal:

- It’s meat, fat, skin and anything else.
- This is because it is part of the wealth which has been spent in the way of Allaah. So it is not permissible to take it back.
- It is not permissible to give from it to the butcher as a complete or partial payment for his services.

[Fataawa Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله (25/1)]
