Fw: [salam] Ruling of Slaughtering Outside Your Town by Sheikh Uthaymeen and Shaykh Fawzan


AsSalam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu

Ruling of Slaughtering Outside Your Town by Sheikh Uthaymeen and Shaykh Fawzan

The following is a summary translation of a post taken from

Sheikh Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said,

"...the sacrifice is a clearly defined worship, because if the intent behind the sacrifice was to benefit the people with the meat then the people would have bought meat and gave it away as charity on the day of the Eid.

Rather, the most important thing is the sacrifice for Allaah the Mighty and Majestic, as Allaah the Exalted said, 'It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allaah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him.' (Sura Hajj verse 37)

Then also, if you sent out money to another town for the sacrifice to be done for you then you have opposed the command of Allaah, because Allaah the Exalted said, 'Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time.' (Sura Hajj verse 28)

And so is it possible for you to eat from it when it was sacrificed in Somalia?...No! Then you have opposed the command of Allaah.

And many of the Scholars have said, 'Eating from the sacrifice is obligatory and the person will be sinning if he leaves it off'.

And by this we know that the call to implore that money for the sacrifice is sent outside of the person's town is a call that is not correct.

And that it is not befitting for the people to partake in this, rather sacrifice at your houses and with your families and manifest the rites of Islaam in your town.

And whoever wants to benefit their brothers in the places where they are in need, then benefit them with money and with clothes and other than that.

But as for a rite from the rites of Islam that we use to draw near to Allaah by sacrificing and eating from it, then it is never befitting for the people to forsake this."

End of Sheikh's speech. (Tape entitled the rites of Hajj side one)

Shaykh Fawzan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

"And as for what has occurred from some of the people when they give the price of the animal to be sacrificed to a charitable organization to perform the sacrifice outside of the town and far away from the house of the one who intended the sacrifice, then this is opposed to the Sunnah and this is altering the worship.

Therefore, it is obligatory to leave off this alteration and to sacrifice at the homes and in the towns of the one who intends the sacrifice as comes in the Sunnah and as was done during the time of the Messenger of Allaah (Salalaahu alayhi wa Sallaam), before this invention occurred.

And verily I fear that this could be a bida' (innovation) .
And the Messenger of Allaah (Salalaahu alayhi wa Sallaam) said, 'Whoever introduces something into this affair of ours that is not from it will have it rejected.'

And he (Salalaahu alayhi wa Sallaam) also said, 'Beware of newly invented matters for every newly invented matter is an innovation and every innovation is astray.'

And whoever wants to give charity to those in need, then the door to charity is open and don't change the worship from its proper legislated method by giving it the name 'charity'."
