Qurbani shares includes non-baaligh

Fatwaa ID: 1372

Assalamu alaikum
1) If there is one or more shares from minors in 7 shares of a big animal, is this qurbani going to be valid? Or all the shares have to be from adults only to make it valid?

2) If there is a share of someone who’s not sahibe nisaab but someone else is paying for his/her share, is it acceptable?

3) Is qurbani for everyone(7 shares)going to be invalid if one of them wasn’t aware of his share in an animal? I mean, someone else paid on his behalf but forgot to inform him of his share.
Jazakumullah khair.

Muhtaram Mufti sahab, I’m extremely sorry for disturbing you, but I sent names for qurbani backhome, and 3 out of 7 are kids, so please guide me for the first question👆above so that I can update names if it’s not acceptable. Jazakallah khairan katheera.

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

May Allaah Ta’aala accept your qurbaani. Qurbaani will be valid for everyone in the three enquired situations. It is not necessary for each of the participants to be adults nor for qurbaani to be waajib on them. As long as all the shares are for the purpose of qurbah, attaining the proximity of Allaah Ta’aala, it will be sufficient.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
