We need some kind of Islamic legislation that allows people to pay money to the poor instead of sacrificing animals.

Imagine $3b dollars put towards poverty every year - every poor child will be fed, educated and provided healthcare for the whole year rather than a parcel of meat that will last a week.
Islam is not yours to make legislation. Legislation of islam is already done in quran.

Stop misguiding people.

3 Billion Dollars is a under estimate
Many of these trades for animal purchase are not tracked , or registered

Likely 15 Billion Dollar worth of Money exchanges hand
Should be Taxed 3-5% by Government


Also much of the discarded , internals could be sold as animal feed if it is preserved
  • Feed for Lions , Animals at zoo

Many poor parts of the world also make use of discarded items


3-5% Tax on 15 Billion Animal Trade on Eid could yield a nice 2.25 Billion Tax collection

Give a man a fish or teach him how to fish

Poor people making money, getting business is better than giving aid which has been proven to be ineffective

This is good, exactly what we need

We sacrifices animals for Allah's satisfaction not to eat or distribute meat to poor.

And the 3 billion dollar goes to the farm owners and other people involved in the this industry, so it directly contribute to the economy.

Then it would stop this activity where people raise and buy animals for eid. It is also a business.

We make sacrifice for the sake of Allah almighty then distribute meat to the poor people so a poor family/child is fed, this also gives meat to a poor family atleast once a year. Lastly Islam does give 2.5% zakah and fitrana to the poor and needy. Sometimes build people homes and give the poor a start in life.

Please do something useful in life than trying to become God.

Please don't try to invent Islam. We are not Christians or other religions who can amend religion as they please, our religious teachings are already written for us. Please educate yourself before writing any comment on Islam.

All schools including the Shia consider Qurbani a 'Farz' for all Muslims who can afford it. Only exception is the Maliki school which says that it is a 'Sunna mu’akkad' and much preferable but not compulsory for those who are not performing Hajj. However, only one qurbani for the whole family is mandatory.

I totally agree with you. There must be an 'Ijtihad' on this matter because in a poor country like Pakistan, part of the money spent on qurbani by non Hajis can be better spent on helping the poor & the needy. In any case there should be no harm in restricting the qurbani to one sacrifice per family. Personally speaking, I have been sending the required money to Edhi Foundation for many years.

You do realise that needy and poor get meat to consume? The whole purpose of sacrificing an animal is to feed the poor.
