‘Can a woman slaughter’

Q. Can a woman slaughter an animal in Eid-ul-Azha?

Time: Tuesday November 8, 2011 at 2:07 am

A: She is allowed to slaughter an animal at anytime she chooses, including at the time of eid-ul-adha.

Additionally, she must do so in a manner that does not expose her to the general public. She must do so in an area that would continue to maintain her honor and dignity.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

    Alhamdu-lillah. I think that if a woman has the strength to hold the animal in the way qurbani must be performed that is great! It is a tough thing, my husband tells me, and he has seen many men having a hard time doing qurbani and sometimes needs a couple of the other mens’ help. If you have no experience, young people doing it the first time for instance, you can get hurt. Sister, I would suggest taking someone with you to be safe who has done it before. Any relative? Also, keep in mind the weight of the animal after doing the qurbani, unless the butcher is taking it from the place directly to his shop. Insha-Allah, it will go well.
