The Law of Canned Qurban Meat
How is the law of canned qurban meat (served in a can)? Is it permissible like that?
This discussion refers to the discussion of whether it is permissible to keep sacrificial meat for more than three days.
From Salamah ibn Al Akwa ', he said, the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said,
«مَنْ ضَحَّى مِنْكُمْ فَلاَ يُصْبِحَنَّ بَعْدَ ثَالِثَةٍ وَفِى بَيْتِهِ مِنْهُ شَىْءٌ». فلما كان العام المقبل قالوا يا رسول الله نفعل كما فعلنا عام الماضى قال «كلوا وأطعموا وادخروا فإن ذلك العام كان بالناس جهد فأردت أن تعينوا فيها»
"Whoever makes a sacrifice among you, do not in the morning after the third day at his house still have a little of the meat left behind." When the following year came, they said, "O Messenger of Allah, we will do as we did last year (ie do not keep the sacrificial meat for more than three days, -pen). He said, "(No), but now please you eat, feed and store it, because in fact last year humans were stricken with hardships (hunger / food crisis, -pen), so I want you to help them (who need food, - pen). " (HR. Bukhari no. 5569 and Muslim no. 1974).
The hadith above shows that the prohibition on storing sacrificial meat occurred in the year 9 hijriyah, while the permission to store occurred in the year 10 hijriyah. See Fathul Bari, 10:26.
From the text above, most scholars argue that it is permissible to keep the sacrificial meat for more than three days. This is the opinion of the jumhur or the majority of scholars. Meanwhile, 'Ali and Ibn' Umar still did not allow sacrificial meat to be stored for more than three days because it did not reach them regarding the hadith regarding the allowance to keep more than three days. They both heard the forbidden hadith from the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam so they narrated it according to what they heard. See Al Mawsu'ah Al Fiqhiyyah, 2: 350.
If it is permissible to save the sacrifice for more than three days, that means it is permissible to store the sacrificial meat in cans or canned or made into corned beef. There are even several benefits if the results of the sacrifice are canned like this:
1- Easy to last longer.
2- The size of the ration is clearer for each recipient.
3- Easy to distribute and more practical to consume.
So as long as the sacrificial slaughter is carried out on the day of Eid al-Adha and the day of tasyriq (11 and 12 Dzulhijjah) and the method of slaughtering is correct, it is also processed with halal ingredients, then it is fine to can or package the sacrificial meat in a can.
