Taking a Loan for Sacrifice (Qurbani)

NOTE: It should be noted that the below answer is the English translation of the Fatwa issued by Jamia Uloom Islamia Allama Yusuf Banuri Town, Karachi, Pakistan.


I am eligible to perform sacrifice but I don’t have enough money. Will it be permissible for me to perform my sacrifice with borrowed money?


  • If Sacrifice (Qurbani) is compulsory and a person does not have cash, then it will be necessary for him to take a loan and make Qurbani.
  • if Qurbani is not compulsory, then it is not better to take a loan. If he does the Qurbani, it will be permissible and he will get the reward and it will be necessary to fulfill his loan.
