As i mentioned in the last post as well the i am not an Islamic scholar. But i used internet to do some research and found that the answer to this question is quite easy. I will answer that below but first learn some basic concepts about eid qurbani. If you don’t want to read this, skip to the last heading about eid al adha qurbani eligibility.
What is Eid Al Adha?
As most of the people who landed on this page would know about eid al adha. But still if there is some non Muslim reading this than eid al adha is a Muslim festival that we celebrate in the memory of Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS). The sacrifice story is quite lengthy and cannot be shared here but i have written it in a separate page and you can read that.
Benefits Of Qurbani:
The purpose of doing this qurbani and eid al adha is that it teaches us the lesson to obey Allah and to share your resources among the poor and also the lesson of helping other. There are many other benefits of eid al adha as well. So if you want to read all that i have attached above the link purpose of eid al adha which will lead you to a post where i have added many benefits of Eid al adha.
Eligibility Criteria For Qurbani For Eid Al Adha:
I will answer this question in very simple words. I don’t want to confuse you but want to share the exact things that i have learned after a lot of research.
So all the males/females are eligible for qurbani if they are bound to pay zakat. Means if you are earning more and you have to pay zakat then you would also have to give qurbani.
So if you don’t know the criteria for zakat you should first go and learn about that and your this question would be automatically answered as well.
