Eid al-Adha falls on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. The holiday, which will last a total of 4 days, will continue on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, Thursday, July 22, 2021, and Friday, July 23, 2021.
WHEN IS THE VICTIM SLAUGHTERED?
The tenth, eleventh and twelfth days of the month of Zilhicce, which is called the sacrifice (udhiye), eyyâm-i nahr (sacrificial days) are cut off.
The sacrificial slaughter time begins after prayers are held in the places where Eid prayers are held, and after the birth of the second fecrimin in places where Eid prayers are not performed; The twelfth day of zilhicce (the third day of the holiday) continues until the sun sets. During this time, sacrifices can be made day and night. But it is more convenient to slaughter the victims in broad daylight.
HOW TO CUT A VICTIM?
For slaughtering victims, the knife is prepared in advance and placed in a place where the animal cannot see. Then the animal’s feet and face are laid to its left side with the sword. The right hind leg of the animal is attached to its other feet, provided that it is released. After that, a single threat is brought. Then, the word“Bismillâhi Allâhü akbar”is stabbed in the neck of the animal. With the breathing and esophagus, the two main vessels called carotid arteries are cut off.
The animal is left to cool, its blood is expected to flow, and then its skin is skinned. If the animal can, it is a bandup for the owner of the victim to slaughter it himself. If he can’t cut himself, he’ll cut a Muslim. The animal is taken to the place where it will be slaughtered without being hurt. Those outside the camel are slowly laid on their left side against the qibla. All three legs are connected for convenience. Then the one who will cut:
“Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la Divine God, Akbar, Allahu akbar and Lillahilhamd. Bismillâhi allahu akbar” and cuts with a large and sharp knife without interruption. He can only cut“Bismillâhi Allahu akbar”. In order to make a proper cut, the animal needs to have its food and windpiets and two carotid arteries amputated. After the sacrifice is made, the owner prays for the sake of Allah, and then prays and wishes to God.
HOW TO SHARE THE VICTIM?
By weighing the meat, it is necessary to share it evenly. Fat, offal and everything eaten are shared. It is not permissible to divide and destroy without weighing, interest. If four of the 7 people are given one leg with meat, the fifth with the flesh, the skin with the meat, and the sixth with the meat, it is permissible to share without weighing.
You don’t have to put anything in the seventh. Or, if they hand over the sacrificial cow to one of them and say, “We have made you a public guardian,” the public representative may give the whole meat to anyone without dividing it, or share it between the partners by eye decision without weighing it.
After weighing the flesh of the victim evenly, it is good to draw it to the court to share. It is permissible and circumcision to draw a wealth into the Qur’an in order to divide it among the partners. If the sacrificial meat is shared without weighing and one gives something to the other, such as a handkerchief, a notebook, a pen, the sharing is authentic.
DISTRIBUTION OF SACRIFICIAL MEAT
Meat can be given to the person who wants it, regardless of whether it is poor or rich or not. The general procedure for distributing meat is to leave a third of the meat at home and one-third to the neighbors and a third to the poor. This is permissive in our religion. It was also permissible to use all the sacrificial meat in his own home or to give it all to the poor. Failure to distribute the sacrificial meat was deemed appropriate if the victim did not have sufficient financial condition or the number of children was high or the house was crowded.
1-A third of them are given as alms to the poor who cannot make sacrifices.
2-Thirds of the relatives and friends who come to his house leave the house for a treat.
3-The remaining third can be allocated as food and alimony to the children in the house.
