Are the conditions of Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) the same as those of the Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims)?
Is it permissible to offer a young and lean sheep?
Yes, the conditions of Hady are not different from that of Ud-hiyah. A person should avoid one-eyed animals whose defects are obvious, lame animals which are obviously lame, sick animals whose sickness is obvious, (Part No. 11; Page No. 378) and emaciated animals that no one would choose. As for the minimum age that the animal should reach, it is six months for sheep, a year for goats, two years for cows and five years for camels. It is impermissible to offer an animal younger than this age as Hady, Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) or `Aqiqah (sacrifice for a newborn).
Q 7: Is it permissible for a pilgrim who performs Qiran Hajj (combining Hajj and `Umrah without a break in between) to buy the Hady from Miqat (sites for entering the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) or should he bring it from his town?
It is permissible for a pilgrim who performs Qiran Hajj to buy the Hady from Miqat, from a place before or after it, to bring it from his town, or to buy it from
`Arafah. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
