الشيخ الفوزان يرد على الجمعيات الخيريةفي مشروع الأضحية
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
أيها المسلمون : الأضحية سنة مؤكدة في حق من يستطيعها تذبح في البيوت ويأكلون منها في بيوتهم ويهدون منها لجيرانهم ،ويتصدقون منها على من حولهم من الفقراء .
واما ما أحدثه بعض الناس من دفع ثمن الأضحية للجمعيات الخيرية لتذبح خارج البلد وبعيداً عن بيت المضحي ،فهذا خلاف السنة وهو تغيير للعبادة،فالواجب ترك هذا التصرف وأن تذبح الأضاحي في البيوت وفي بلد المضحي ،كما دلت عليه السنة ،وكما عليه عمل المسلمين من عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حتى حصل هذا الإحداث فإني أخشى أن يكون بدعة،وقد قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم “من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد”،وقال عليه الصلاة والسلام :”وإياكم ومحدثات الأمور ،فإن كل محدثة بدعة، وكل بدعة ضلالة”.
ومن أراد أن يتصدق على المحتاجين فباب الصدقة مفتوح ،ولا تغير العبادة عن وجهها الشرعي باسم الصدقة – أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم:((وما آتاكم الرسول فخذوه وما نهاكم عنه فانتهوا واتقوا الله إن الله شديد العقاب))
بارك الله لي ولكم في القرآن العظيم .

O Muslims! Udh-hiyah is a stressed Sunnah for the one who is able to do it. It is slaughtered in the houses, they eat from it in their houses, give some of it to their neighbors, and give some of it as charity to those poor people around them.
As for what some of the people have invented, from paying the price of the udh-hiyah to charity organizations who slaughter (for them) outside of their city and far away from the house of the one offering the udh-hiyah, then this is against the Sunnah and changing an act of worship. So it is obligatory to leave this transaction and slaughter the udh-hiyahs in the houses and in the same city as the one offering the udh-hiyah, as is shown in the Sunnah and as has been the practice of the Muslims since the time of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) up until this invention has occurred. And I am afraid that it may be an innovation, and the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) had said, “Whoever introduces into our affair something that is not part of it, it is rejected.” And he (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said, “Be warned of newly invented matters, for verily every newly invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation is a straying.”
So whoever wants to give in charity to those in need, then the door of charity is wide open, but do not bring change to the correct Shar’ee way of an act of worship by calling it a sadaqah, I seek refuge in Allaah from the accursed Shaytaan, (( And what the Messenger gives you, then take it, and what he forbids you from, then cease doing it, and fear Allaah, verily Allaah is severe in punishment. )) [al-Hashr:7] May Allaah bless me and you by way of the great Qur’aan.
– One Udhiyah is sufficient on behalf of a man and the members of his household
– Ud-hiyah offered by your father is not sufficient for you if you are living with your family in a separate house
Q: I am married, praise be to Allah, and I have children. I live in a city other than the city in which my family lives, but on holidays I go to the city where my family is. On ‘Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice), my children and I came five days before the ‘Eid but we did not offer the Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) even though I am able to, praise be to Allah.
Is it permissible for me to offer Ud-hiyah? Is my father’s Ud-hiyah valid on behalf of myself and my wife and children? What is the ruling on Ud-hiyah for the one who is financially able? Is it obligatory on the one who is not able? Is it permissible to take a loan in order to offer the Ud-hiyah? A.A.Sh. Rafha’ the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
A: The Ud-hiyah is a Sunnah (supererogatory act of worship following the example of the Prophet), not Wajib (obligatory), and one sheep is sufficient on behalf of a man and the members of his household, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to sacrifice two-horned rams that were white speckled with black, every year; one on behalf of himself and the members of his household, and the other on behalf of those among his Ummah (nation based on one creed) who believe in the Oneness of Allah.
If you, dear questioner, are living in a separate house, then the Ud-hiyah offered by your father on behalf of himself and the members of his household is not sufficient for you, because you are not living with them in the same house. It is prescribed for you to offer Ud-hiyah on behalf of yourself and your family. There is nothing wrong with a Muslim taking a loan to offer Ud-hiyah if he is able to repay it. May Allah grant us all success

From Tafseer ibn Katheer – Surah Al-Hajj
- The Goal of the Udhiyyah according to Allah is the Sincerity and Taqwa of His Servant
It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is Taqwa from you that reaches Him
- Explanation of the Udhiyyah and the Sha`a’ir of Allah
- Rites of Sacrifice have been prescribed for every Nation in the World

Dear Brothers (sorry Sisters),
This email comes with good news! 2 months in Kuwait sitting with the Ulamaa learning Arabic, Tajweed, Aqeedah, Fiqh, Tafseer and more! Last year, the price was $5,000. With the raise in airfare and other prices, the cost was raised to $5,500. However, there are some very kind Brothers in Kuwait (some of them are the ‘Ulamaa who will be teaching themselves) who have advised us to drop the price during these first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah to make it more affordable. They said to cut the price in half. That is 2 months in Kuwait, learning at the feet of the Ulamaa the way the Salaf used to. Airfare, transportation to and from classes, and more —- for only $2,750!
Official decision and announcement of the High Judiciary Council (HJC) of Saudi Arabia regarding the beginning of Dhul-Hijjah.
