Treatment of the animal – Part 11

Jul 19, 2021

Rules and laws regarding Qurbani animals
Over the past week we have discussed the virtues, the purpose as well as the spirit with which Qurbani should be performed. Today we will look at some of the laws and rules regarding the treatment of the animal for Qurbani.

How should the animal be treated?
Try to be as humane to the animal as possible.
Essentially they should be provided with:
1. Clean drinking water
2. Feed for animal consumption. Inadequate feed can cause the death of the animal.
3. A clean sheltered place

For those who prefer to take their animal home and perform the slaughter in their own backyards, and especially in these days when farms are trying to mitigate and abstain from large crowds, then you might want to speak to your livestock dealer with regards to feeds that are suitable as certain grasses, if eaten in excess, can cause bloating and in some cases can even lead to the death of the animal.

Where should the animal be kept?
Fresh open air is more apt for the animal than being cooped up in a garage.
If you do have a back yard rather keep them there.
Wooden pellets are easily available and can be used as fencing. It is essential to remember that wrong material used (for fencing) could either injure the animal or enable it to break loose.

The Do’s and Don’ts of transportation?
This is with regards to transporting the carcass to a butcher or storage facility after slaughtering has been done.
Try to stay away from black bags and newspapers. Newspapers tend to stick to the meat and this becomes problematic. Make sure the carcass is hosed off before it is stored. This ensures that any dirt on the animal is removed and this will not cause any form of decomposition.

There are many complaints attached to the stench that emits from the Qurbaani meat, however, this is as a result of the meat not being hosed of properly after having been skinned. It is important to maintain hygiene even in such an instance.
