Discussion of the Offering

Topic/Issue:3651 - Agreement among the scholars --
Agreement:The jurists agreed that the offering should not be from things other than the eight categories explicitly laid down by Allah, and that it is preferable that the offering should first be a camel then a cow then sheep then goats, but they differed about other slaughtered animals. With respect to the ages, they agreed that the thaniy (the age of one year for sheep, two years for cows, and five for camels) is valid, but a six month old from among goats is not valid as an offering (hady) or as a blood sacrifice. There is no dispute that the more expensive the offering the better it is. There is no known limit for the number of offerings, and the offerings of the Messenger of Allah (God's peace and blessings be upon him) were up to a hundred.
