It is to be noted that due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, a final decision has not been made yet on whether Hajj will take place this year or not. The Saudi Ministry of Hajj is consulting in this regard. Meetings are being held with reference so that people can be allowed to go to the bazaars and markets like Eid-ul-Fitr so that the Coronavirus can spread further.
If the government allows cattle markets for sacrifice, it will definitely spread the Coronavirus, citizens should be facilitated for sacrifice but with caution, smart lockdown has been done in the country, cities have been closed. Meanwhile, if the government opens the markets, this smart lockdown will be of no use
The condition for the sacrifice to be Sunnah or obligatory is that the person making the sacrifice should have a status, for example, the amount of the sacrifice should be in excess of personal needs and the needs of the dependents, so if a Muslim has such a monthly salary or income that It is sufficient for the needs of and it also has the value of sacrifice, so sacrificing for it is a shar’i act.
Poverty in Pakistan has increased due to Coronavirus lockdown, thousands of people have lost their jobs. Many people do not have two meals a day, so the government should help the people, and at the same time not take any steps to increase the spread of the coronavirus.
Earlier, the Sindh Local Government Department had written a letter to the Sindh Home Department asking it to withdraw all licenses issued to cattle markets in view of the growing situation of coronavirus in the province. If cattle markets are set up, cases of coronavirus will double in the province as cattle markets are crowded and SOPs cannot be implemented there.
