Q: Is it permissible for a Muslim to offer a castrated ram as an Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims)?
A: Offering a castrated ram as an Ud-hiyah is permissible, because this is not a blemish but it is better for the flesh of the animal. It was authentically reported that: The Prophet (peace be upon him) sacrificed two white, castrated rams with big horns. This is the wording of Al-Hakim as mentioned in the book “Al-Muntaqa”.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Jayeoba Kafayat Modupeoluwa, mostly known as Ummu Abdillah is a Technologist in Electronics and Telecommunication engineering but presently only active as an Islamic writer – so do not bother to ask her about diodes and electromagnetic waves 🤗. Happily married and recently gifted a princess.
She is a lover of teenagers and marriage and does make it her occupation to study them.
