PostHeaderIcon Duhiya Part 1

Duhiya in the corner. You should buy animals for sacrifice now and keep it for duhiya before the price escalates.  Duhiya is a must for those who can afford as is clearly stated in sural kauthar and many authentic haddiths. The head of family must slaughter an animal. The slaughtering has to be done before after Idd-ah-ha prayers.
If you plan to fast in the first ten days and slaughter for duhiya. There are things which you must do and they as stated below in haddith narrated by Bukhari and Muslim:   
1. Do not cut your nails (toes or fingers)
2. Do not remove hair from your body, do not shave
3. You can do the above after slaughtering the animals. 
You can sacrifice more than one animal. One can be for you and your family and the second can be for others who might not be able. Some scholars say that you can sacrifice for the dead. When you die all your deed stops but the good and the bad you deed the continues.
The animals and their ages, which can be sacrificed, are:
1. Cow (two years and above: enough for seven people)
2. Goat ( one year and above)  
3. Sheep ( six months years and above)
4. Camel (five years and above: enough for seven people)
To be continued Inshallah.
