​Giving money to an organisation to slaughter

Home / Q&A / ​Giving money to an organisation to slaughter

Is it permissible to give money for an organisation for sacrifice rather than doing it personally? What about for lady who is giving sacrifice?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

No. The The Scholars say that a Muslim needs to sacrifice individually. Slaughtering is a great act of worship and it is a Shairah ( شعيرة ) which should be apparent among the Muslims, also distributing meat and eating from it as another act of worship which needs to be done.

Either you slaughter a sheep by yourself or you can share in slaughtering a cow with maximum of 7 people sharing in same cow.

A woman can also slaugter an Udheyya and she can authorize another person or a butcher to slaughter it on her behalf, this is also same for a man who is not able to slaughter by himself, he can authorize someone to do it on his behalf.
