Blood of Qurbaani animal

Fatwaa ID: 1360

AsalaamuAlaikum, in regard to slaughtering animals on eid ul adha, what’s the ruling on the blood that gets on one’s clothes while slaughtering?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Blood from qurbaani animals, just like any other animal, is najis/impure. The animal is blessed but that does not change the nature of its impurity.

If blood from a qurbaani animal gets on the clothing while being slaughtered, then it will have to be washed off. It is najis. If the total amount of blood is less than the size of a dirham, which is approximately 3 cm in diameter, then one will be excused in unavoidable situations to perform salaah with them. If it is avoidable, then it will reprehensible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
