According to most Muslims, Qurbani is highly recommended and according to the Hanafi madhab it’s obligatory for every sane adult Muslim male/female who has wealth in excess of his/her needs.
Normally, if you’re eligible to pay Zakat, then you’re also obliged in the Hanafi madhab to give Qurbani.
Who is Qurbani compulsory on?
The Hanafi school of thought states that giving Qurbani is obligatory for:
- Every sane Muslim of mature age (who has reached puberty)
- Non-travelling persons
- Those who additionally own wealth which is beyond their needs, equal to (or more than) the current level of nisab (87.48 grams of gold or 612.36 grams of silver)
