When it’s about animals for Sacrifice, Age is not just a number!

If it’s a goat (Bakra!) it should be 3 years or older, if it’s a cow, it should 2 years or older and if it’s a camel it should be 6 years or older! Always check the front teeth of animals.

Always make sure that;
- The animal is not blind or has lost a third or more of their eyes.
- The animal is not missing a third or more of their tail or ears.
