How much money is the sacrifice obligatory?

Sacrifice is Obligatory for Everyone?

 

The amount of money that is obligatory for sacrifice is not fixed. It depends on the type of animal sacrificed, the location of the sacrifice, and the financial status of the person performing the sacrifice. In general, the minimum amount of money required for sacrifice is the value of a sheep. However, if a person can afford to sacrifice a more expensive animal, such as a cow or a camel, they are encouraged to do so.

The location of the sacrifice also affects the amount of money required. The minimum amount of money required for sacrifice in Mecca is higher than in other parts of the world. This is because the cost of living in Makkah is high.

The financial status of the person making the sacrifice also affects the amount of money required. If a person cannot afford to sacrifice an animal, they may be able to meet their obligation by donating money to a charity that will use the money to purchase and sacrifice an animal on their behalf.

Although Hajj is obligatory once in a lifetime, Qurbani has to be offered once every year. It is not a condition that a certain amount of wealth exceeds a year for someone to be obligated to sacrifice; rather, if he owns a Nesab amount of wealth during the period from 10 Zilhaj Fajr to 12 ZilHaj before sunset, he must sacrifice. The 10th, 11th, and 12th of Zilhaj can be sacrificed on any of these three days. But if possible, it is better to perform the sacrifice on the 10th.

  • Nesab is seven and a half bhoris in the case of gold (currently 5 lakh, three thousand taka). And in the case of silver, fifty two and a half is full. And in the case of other things, wealth equals fifty-two and a half bharis of silver. (55 thousand rupees)

  • The Nesab amount is the market price of gold. On the 10th, 11th, and 12th of the month of Zilhaj, if someone has 7 and a half tolas or a weight of gold, Qurbani is obligatory on him. If the amount of gold is taken as nesab, the amount of money will be—

  • The price of 22-carat quality gold per tola is 98 thousand 444 taka, and the price of 7 and a half taka is 7 lakh 38 thousand taka.

  • 21 carat gold per load or withdrawal as 93 thousand 954 taka for 7 and a half loads: 7 lakh 5 thousand taka.

  • 80 thousand 540 taka per load of 18 carat gold, a cost of 7 and a half taka – 6 lakh 4 thousand taka.

  • The price of traditional method gold is 67 thousand, 126 tk per tk, 7 and a half tk, 5 lakh, and 3 thousand.

  • This price may fluctuate. In that case, Nesab should be determined by calculating the market price. Therefore, for those who will sacrifice gold, it is necessary to sacrifice 5 lakh, 3 thousand rupees, or equivalent wealth in the possession of the 10th–12th days of Zilhaj (these three days).

  • The Nesab amount is the market value of silver. On the 10th, 11th, and 12th of the month of Zilhaj, Qurbani is obligatory if one has 52 and a half tolas/bari of silver. If the amount of silver is taken as nesab, the amount of money will be—

  • As the price of 22-carat silver is 1800 taka, the price of 52-ton silver is 94,500 taka. 1700 taka per load of 21-carat silver; the price of 52-tola silver is 89 thousand 250 taka.

  • 1400 taka per load of 18 carat silver, the price of 52 tola silver is 73,500 taka. 52 and a half tolas of silver are 55 thousand 125 taka as per the 1050 taka of the traditional method.

  • So if someone has even a minimum of 55 thousand rupees, then he has to offer sacrifice according to the provisions of the Nesab amount of silver.

  • So after meeting the expenses of the family, if there is a fixed amount of gold or silver on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of the month of Zilhaj or an equivalent amount of Taka according to the market price, i.e., 55 thousand to 5 lakh Taka, then it is necessary to sacrifice for that person.

  • Sacrifice is obligatory on the servant, subject to certain conditions. The conditions are: 1) Being a Muslim 2) Becoming an adult 3) Having a healthy brain. Qurbani will not be obligatory, even if one owns insane wealth. 4) Being an independent person Sacrifice for the slave is not necessary. 5) To settle, i.e., to stay in a place for more than 15 days. Qurbani is not obligatory on the traveler. 6) Zakat is obligatory to own this amount of wealth.

  • If any one of them, gold, silver, or money, does not have the necessary amount individually, but more than one thing in addition to the need becomes equal to the value of fifty-two and a half tolas of silver, then the sacrifice is obligatory on him.

 

Sacrifice should be done in the name of Allah. The animal must be healthy and free from defects. Animals must be slaughtered humanely. Sacrificial meat should be distributed among the poor and needy.
