Follow the Sunnah of Ibrahim (AS)
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said:“Whoever offers a sacrifice after the Eid prayer, has completed his rituals of Qurban and has succeeded in following the ways of the Muslims.” (Bukhari)
The animals to be slaughtered at Qurbani/ Udhiyah are sheep, goats, cattle (cows or bulls), buffalo or camels.
According to the rules of Qurbani, they can be male or female but should be in good health, free from disability or handicap, and above a certain age. Goats and sheep must be at least one year old, while cattle must be two years, and camels five years.
