The Animals of Qurbani
Rules about Defective Animals
The following animals are acceptable in Qurbani:
The Sunnah Method of Qurbani
2.It is a Sunnah to lay the animal with its face towards the Qiblah, and to recite
In the name of Allah . Allah is the Greatest."
"O Allah accept from me this sacrifice like you have accepted from your beloved Muhammad and your friend Ibrahim. Peace be upon them"
But the most essential recitation when slaughtering an animal is: Bismillah, Allahu Akbar. (In the name of Allah, Allah is the greatest). If somebody intentionally avoids to recite it when slaughtering an animal, it does not only make his Qurbani unlawful, but also renders the animal haram, and it is not permissible to eat the meat of that animal. However, if a person did not avoid this recitation intentionally, but he forgot to recite it when slaughtering the animal, this mistake is forgiven and both the Qurbani and the slaughter are lawful.
