Q. I am in the process of looking for Qurbani animals. Someone has suggested castrated sheep. Is it permissible to use castrated sheep for Qurbani?


A. It is permissible and preferable to slaughter a castrated animal. A castrated animal is usually bigger in size and the meat is superior. (al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah, Vol: 5, Pg: 297 & al-Muheetul Burhani, Vol: 6, Pg: 93, D.K.I).

It is recorded in the Hadith that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) made Qurbani of a castrated animal. (Abu Dawood, Hadith #: 2795, Narrated by Jabir bin Abdillah)
