Dedicating some of his sheep as Waqf, provided that after his death an Ud-hiyah be slaughtered from them each year

Q: A man called Mubarak ‘Awadah Hazmy came to us asking for a Fatwa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) on his intention to make a Waqf (endowment) of a part of his sheep to be slaughtered annually on his behalf every year as an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims). He wanted to make this applicable after his death. May Allah protect you and benefit the Muslims through you and increase your reward!

(Part No. 16; Page No. 105)  Having studied the Fatwa request, the committee answered as follows: It is permissible to make a Waqf of animals and it is valid to suspend the Waqf until after the death of the donor. It should be from one-third of the property, because it has the same ruling as a bequest. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
