Buying a “Sacrifice” via Various Charitable Organisations to be Slaughtered Abroad for the Poor?
Written by Abu Muadh Taqweem Aslam (hafidhahullaah)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is a common practice for Charity Organisations to advertise and offer “sacrifices” to be done abroad and distributed to the poor in exchange for a fee to cover the costs of the slaughtering. Many individuals who desire to sacrifice engage in this activity and perhaps find a greater degree of ease in simply buying a “sacrifice” from a Charity who will slaughter on their behalf abroad for the poor.

The following is the fatwa of Shaikh al-Fawzan on this issue:

Q: “A fatwa has spread from you in recent times that paying money to Charity Organisations for the slaughtering [to be done on your behalf] is against the Sunnah? What’s your opinion on this oh Shaikh?”
