Qurbaani Laws Made Easy - Part Nine

TO GIVE THE MEAT OF QURBAANI IN EXCHANGE FOR SOMETHING
It is not permissible to give the Qurbaani meat in exchange for something besides food, nor is it permissible to sell it or give it to the butcher or worker. If a person has done so, then he should give the value of it in charity.
ADAA QURBAANI TOGETHER WITH QADHA QURBAANI
If one partner from the seven made the intention for the Qurbaani of the previous year, then the Qurbaani of all the partners will be valid. However, an optional Qurbaani will be done for the one who made the intention for Qadhaa, the Qadhaa will not be considered. It will be necessary to give all the meat of the animal in charity and it will be necessary to give a medium sized goat in charity in lieu of the Qadhaa Qurbaani.
ROPE
It is Mustahab to give the rope of the animal in charity. If a person sold it, then it is compulsory to give the value in charity. If a person wants to use it, then he can and he is also permitted to give it as a gift if he wants to.
THE TAKBEERAAT-E-TASHREEQ
#….. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Lailaha Illalahu Wallahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Walillahil Hamd
#….. It is Waajib to recite this Takbeer at least once from after the Fajr Salaah of the ninth Zil Hijjah to the Asr of the thirteenth Zil Hijjah immediately after the Fardh Salaah.
#….. Males should recite it aloud while ladies should recite it softly.
#….. The Takbeer-e-Tashreeq should be recited immediately after the Salaam so much so that if one talks or intentionally breaks one’s Wudhu, the Takbeer-e-Tashreeq lapses.
#…..If a Salaat was missed during the days of Tashreeq and it was performed in that very year during the days of Tashreeq, then in this case too, it is necessary to say the Takbeer after making Salaam after the Fardh Salaat.
#…..It is necessary upon a Muqeem (resident) to recite the Takbeer e Tashreeq. Similarly, it is also necessary upon the Musaafir (traveller) due to following a Muqeem.
#…..It is Waajib upon those who are performing Salaat with Jama’ah as well as those performing alone, men and women to recite the Tabeer e Tashreeq.
IT IS WAAJIB TO SAY THE TAKBEER-E-TASHREEQ ONCE
#….. It is Waajib to say the Takbeer-e-Tashreeq once. To say it more than this is not Waajib.
THE QADHA OF TAKBEER-E-TASHREEQ
#…..If a person forgets to recite the words of Takbeer-e-Tashreeq after the Fardh Namaaz there is no Qadha for it later on. It will be necessary to make Taubah so that the sin can be forgiven.
SLAUGHTERING BY ONE WHO IS ILLEGITIMATE
#….. If an illegitimate individual is a Muslim, it will be permissible to eat of the animal slaughtered by him. Eating such meat is permissible.
DRAGGING UPSIDE DOWN
#….. It is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi to drag the animal by the back legs towards the front to the place of slaughtering.
SAY ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’ AND SLAUGHTERING
#….. Reciting ‘Allahu Akbar’ only when slaughtering an animal makes it Halaal and permissible for consumption but is contrary to the Sunnah. Therefore, one should recite, ‘Bismillah Allahu Akbar’ before slaughtering the animal.
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO SAY ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’
#….. It is sufficient to say, ‘Bismillah’ at the time of slaughtering and it is not necessary to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ although saying, ‘Bismillahi Allahu Akbar’ is in keeping with the Sunnah.
FORGETTINGTO SAY BISMILLAH
#….. Even if a person forgot to recite, “ بسم الله الله اكبر ” and slaughtered an animal, then too, its meat will be Halaal and it is permissible to eat it. This is because it will be accepted that the one slaughtering it on the basis of being a Muslim does not slaughter on any name besides the name of Allaah (SWT).
HOW BISMILLAH MUST BE READ
#….. Zabah (slaughtering) is an action which is done by exercising one’s choice and to recite “Bismillaah” precisely when slaughtering is conditional. Thus, one has to slaughter while reciting “Bismillah”. Nothing else should be done before reciting “Bismillaah” so much so, that if a person lays the animal down and recites “Bismillah” then leaves that animal alive after which he slaughters another animal with the same “Bismillah” he had recited for the first animal, it will not be permissible to eat that slaughtered animal.
MAKING AN ANIMAL UNCONSCIOUS AND SLAUGHTERING
To render an animal unconscious by shooting it in the head or stunning it is not in keeping with the method of slaughtering according to the Sunnah method and Islaamic teachings. There is a strong presumption of the animal being Haraam in such a case. If the death of the animal is certain due to the infliction of such an injury, it is useless to even pass the knife over its throat, for the animal will already be Haraam.
THE ANIMAL SHOULD SUFFER AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE
#….. At the time of slaughtering due arrangements must be made to ensure that the animals suffer as little as possible because of which the command is for one to ensure that the knife is very sharp and that an animal must not be slaughtered where it can be seen by other animals. The required veins should be properly severed so that life leaves the animal easily. The knife should not be sharpened in front of the animals. 
INTENDING TO SLAUGHTER AN ANIMAL RAISED AS A PET FOR QURBAANI
#….. An intention was made to slaughter an animal which was raised as a pet in the home for Qurbaani during the days of Qurbaani. Due to this intention it will not be compulsory to make Qurbaani of such an animal. It is permissible to exchange or even sell such an animal. (Thus, it will not be compulsory for the person who owned this animal and made such an intention to make Qurbaani of that animal.)
