If a person dies after the Days of Tashriq, is it permissible to slaughter an Ud-hiyah on his behalf?
If a person dies after the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah), is it permissible to slaughter an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) on his behalf?
Some people offer an Ud-hiyah on behalf of a person who dies during the month of Dhul-Hijjah.
The days of slaughtering the Ud-hiyah on behalf of the dead or any person are over with the sunset of (Part No. 10; Page No. 420) the thirteenth day of Dhul-Hijjah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
All the Days of Tashriq are days of sacrifice.
Al-Haythamy in his book "Majma` Al-Zawa'id")Imam
`Aly (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "The days of sacrifice are the day of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice) and three days after it." Also,
Ibn Al-Qayyim said: "These days are distinguished by being days of
Mina and Days of Tashriq and it is not permissible to observe Sawm (Fast) on them."Thus, it will not serve as sufficient to slaughter the Ud-hiyah if these days are over, except for the Ud-hiyah required by a will, vow or specification. In this case, it is allowable to make up for it and slaughter the Ud-hiyah after these days for those who miss slaughtering during these days.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
