Q. I would like to do Qurbani this year but I don’t have much money. I only have some Jewellery worth about R1000.00 and some cash, not more than R2000.00. will I be sinful if I can’t do it this year?
(Question published as received)
A. If during the days of Qurbani, your financial position remains the same as is now, and you do not have money or jewellery (gold/silver) to the Nisaab* amount, Qurbani will not be compulsory upon you and you will not be sinful for not performing Qurbani.
*The Nisaab amount as of today is R4 592.00
