My question short, could kill the animal but besides aqiqah goats, like cows, buffalos or camel? We ask that along with the evidence. Jazaakallaahukhair.
If it is the ‘ goat ‘ is other than a cow, Buffalo or camel, allowing most of the scholars, although there are differences of opinion.
But if it means aqiqah is replaced by alms with money or with feasting on food to the poor, all scholars agree refused if still want called aqiqah. Because the definition is in fact killing the aqiqah animals.
Because basically the aqiqah as defined, that which is meant by aqiqah:
مَا يُذَكَّى عَنِ الْمَوْلُودِ شُكْرًا لِلَّهِ تَعَالَى بِنِيَّةٍ وَشَرَائِطَ مَخْصُوصَةٍ
The animals were slaughtered over a baby that was born as an expression of gratitude to God with intention and specific terms.
Already a provision that aqiqah should only be by way of slaughtering animals only, should not be in the form of others, such as buy raw meat and then cooked and served in banquets, with the intention of aqiqah.
When do I like it, its name is not aqiqah and certainly not valid in law. Even in the reward of charity remains usable, but this way is certainly not a jasa aqiqah murah malang
The Original Example Of A Goat
If we trace the nash original, as exemplified by the Prophet when slaughtering animals aqiqah for both his grandson, indeed that he was slain that goat.
عَقَّ النَّبِيُّ عَنِ الحَسَنِ وَالحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلاَمِ كَبْشاً كَبْشاً
The Prophet menyembelihkan to Hasan and Husayn each goats kibas. (Narrated By Bukhari)
Shall With In Addition To The Goats?
The scholars differed concerning the capacity to replace goats with other animals. It was a given that the sample recovered from the Prophet indeed with slaughter goats.
However, if the example of the Prophet MUHAMMAD were the terms and conditions, or be a minimum limit, in this case the scholars differed. Scholars generally allow the slaughter of goats in addition with aqiqah, provided the type of animals as sacrifices, namely an-na’am, like camel, cow, or ox. There are however some scholars that limits only justified with the slaughter of goats only.
The opinion that allow beraqiqah with the addition of the goat is the opinion of the majority of scholars like Al-Hanafi sect, As-Syafi’iyah, and Hanbalis. While among the Al-Maalikis, there is a difference between allowing and history that does not allow. But more of this sect rajih, allowing it.
