Sacrifice of Animal - Male or Female
  • Question:

    I am told that we have to sacrifice only a male animal and not a female on the day of Eid ul Adha - please confirm.

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    For the sacrificial animal having to be a male, there is no basis for that as it is not specified as such in the sunnah of the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa salam).

    And Allah knows best.
