Butcher’s Wage (Ahadith 1474 – 1475)


Hadith no. 1473 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 773:

Narrated Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) offered four Rakat of Zuhr prayer at Medina and two Rakat of ‘Asr prayer at Dhul-Hulaifa. Narrated Aiyub: “A man said: Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Then he (the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) passed the night there till dawn and then he offered the morning (Fajr) prayer, and mounted his Mount and when it arrived at Al-Baida’ he assumed Ihram for both ‘Umra and Hajj.”

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 774:

Narrated ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent me to supervise the (slaughtering of) Budn (Hadi camels) and ordered me to distribute their meat, and then he ordered me to distribute their covering sheets and skins. ‘All added, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered me to supervise the slaughtering (of the Budn) and not to give anything (of their bodies) to the butcher as wages for slaughtering.”

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 775:

Narrated ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered me to supervise the (slaughtering) of Budn (Hadi camel) and to distribute their meat, skins and covering sheets in charity and not to give anything (of their bodies) to the butcher as wages for slaughtering.

It is not permissible to sell part of the sacrificial animal or udhiyah (sacrifice on Eid), or to sell all of it, except in cases where it is done in accordance with the purpose of the sacrifice, because what a person has given to Allaah cannot be sold at all.

It says in al-Mughni: It is not permissible to sell any part of it – i.e., the sacrificial animal – but if the butcher is poor and he gives him something because he is poor, in addition to the wages that he gives him, that is permissible, because he is entitled to take some of it because of being poor, not as payment for his work. End quote (3/222)

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: It is haraam to sell any part of the udhiyah, whether the meat or anything else, even the skin. The butcher should not be given anything from it in partial payment for his work, because that is like selling. (Risaalah Ahkaam al-Hadiy wa’l-Udhiyah)
