An Islamic Cleric, Jimoh Abdulwahab, has warned faithful against slaughtering deformed animals for Sallah.
The cleric gave the advice in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Saturday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria ahead of the annual feast on Sunday.
According to him, only healthy animals free of any deformity and blemish can be used for Sallah.
He said, “Animals that are blind, either in one or the two eyes, animals with any form of disease, and deformed either in its legs or any part of its body are forbidden.
“Also, people under the influence of alcohol, unbelievers and thugs, among others, are forbidden to slaughter animals during Sallah.
“The meat should be divided into three portions, one portion for the family, the second for people visiting and the third for people who were unable to slaughter animals for Sallah.
“Muslim faithful should extend the Sallah meat to adherents of other religions to demonstrate goodwill and brotherhood.”
