Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam ShafiHe is not to eat anything from the obligatory offering, and all its meat is for the needy, so also its saddle, if there is any, for the needy as well as the shoes with which it was garlanded. Their reliance is on the similarity between all kinds of offerings that are obligatory due to expiation.
Imam MalikHe may eat from every obligatory offering, except the offering in expiation for killing game, that which is due to a vow for the needy, and that which is due to the elimination of ailment.They argued that there are two meanings which are apparent in the offering. The first is that it is a worship, and the other is that it is an expiation. Hence they gave predominance to its similarity with worship over its similarity with expiation, in each individual kind of offering, like the offering in giran and the offering in tamattu, because such an offering in their view is a merit and not an expiation repelling a punishment.
Imam Abu HanifaHe is not to eat from the obligatory offering, except from the offering of tamattu and the offering of qiraanThey argued that there are two meanings which are apparent in the offering. The first is that it is a worship, and the other is that it is an expiation. They gave predominance to its similarity with expiation and said that he is not to eat from it, because of their agreement that the person making the expiation is not to eat from the substance of the expiation
