Eid-ul-Adha, the holy festival of sacrifice, is going to arrive this year with a different approach. With the tradition of this festival, many people are planning to buy their own Qurbani animals, but there will be a risk of getting infected by the deadly virus COVID-19 while visiting the physical haat.
You can thank us for the new digital movement happening in Bangladesh. Bikroy.com is the pioneer of arranging online buying and selling of Qurbani animals. Now several public and private organizations have brought digital cattle markets to help all the people in carrying out their religious sacrifices, overcoming the ongoing pandemic situation.
With the ease and the efficiency of trading Qurbani animals online, we are here with some tips and methods which can help you to get your desired Qurbani animal in this festive season.
Things to know before stepping into the online cattle market
As the Qurbani season comes nearby, farm owners want to make their cattle look healthy and prepared. To do so, they feed special foods to the animals, but some dishonest farm owners apply steroids, hormone injections, and other harmful foods to the animals to gain some extra profit.
The meat becomes harmful for humans if it is infected with these sorts of poisonous chemicals. Chances of getting cancer, diabetes, kidney failure, and many more diseases increase significantly. Due to the harsh reactions to human health conditions by eating steroid-infused meat, many developed countries have legally banned these practices.
But while buying animals from an online marketplace, how can you measure these signals and avoid them? Here you go.
How to identify a healthy Qurbani animal online?
When you will sit to choose and buy your Qurbani animal online, here are some tips you can keep in your mind before making the final decision:
- Try to take some expert persons with you, who can easily identify a healthy animal with the glimpse of an eye.
- Ask the age of the animal to the seller and if you have confusion then you can ask for the teeth images to justify. The teeth of healthy animals are undamaged and look perfect. Cows usually have 2 permanent incisors at two years of age, 4 at three years of age, 6 at four years of age, and a full mouth of 8 permanent incisors at five years of age. Sheep and goats of at least one year of age with 2 permanent teeth will be considered eligible for Qurbani.
- Look at every single side of your animal through the image. You can ask your seller to make a video call where you can check the animal accurately.
- Make sure the animal is not pregnant, because it’s prohibited to sacrifice pregnant animals.
- Try to stick with medium size cows, because in many cases giant size cows have more fat in the body, which can be harmful to human health after consumption. Also, the bigger cows tend to be hormone-injected. So, be careful if you are buying any of them.
- It is prohibited to sacrifice weak and defective animals. Make sure you check them out really well. Take a good look at their noses, the surface typically looks wet for healthy animals.
- Examine the animal thoroughly by making a video call option. Check if the horns are okay, the tail, mouth, teeth, and other organs should check properly before making a purchase.
It’s hard to check all of the metrics which you could make if you were in the market physically, but we hope if you keep all things checked, you can pick the right animal for sacrificing in this Eid.
