What Do I Do if I Missed Slaughtering (Qurbani/Udhiya)?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz A. Khan

Question: I am following the hanafi madhab. What do I do now that I miss slaughtering. ( i missed it because I asked someone else to do it for me and they forgot).

Answer: Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and states.

If one missed qurbani/udhiya for a particular year, one would have to donate the market value of one sheep/goat to the poor. This is mandatory (wajib), since the qurbani was mandatory.
