Home Q&A Qurbani Nisaab and Qurbani

Q: A student gets paid next week. She is now  in possession of money to the value of zakaat nisaab on the day of eid.  She still has to pay expenses for the month (rent, food, etc). Does qurbaani become waajib on her?

A: If person becomes an owner of Nisab during any of the three days of Qurbani i.e. 10-12th Zul Hiijah Qurbani will become Wajib. If the person is unable to afford the Qurbani despite having the Nisab due to future expenses which will become due, the person may look at sending money overseas or to a foreign country where the Qurbani is cheaper.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
