Sacrificing Cows for Atonement

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) There was a report stating that the Taliban has announced there will be a sacrifice of 100 cows as atonement for delaying the demolishion of the statues. Can you please say if this is from Islam or is it a Bid'ah. [Omar]

A.) It is not prohibited for one to slaughter an animal and give its meat as charity to the poor and needy for the atonement of one’s sins and shortcomings.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
