Islamic Duties / Meaning of hadyi with relation to qurbani sacrifice
« on: August 21, 2018, 01:49:33 PM »
Salam dear br. Joseph,

My question is one of translation. In verse 2:196, I see several different translations regarding the eid al adha sacrifice. Some versions translate hadyi as meaning sacrificial animal, whereas other translate it more broadly as a gift or offering. Are both interpretations correct or is one better? Personally, I am vegetarian and want to know whether I must sacrifice an animal or just "offerings/gifts" to the needy. Thank you.

As a female, I do not experience any of those symptoms you mention (no cramps, mood swings, fatigue etc.). I also had my iron levels checked during that time of month and it was high. I have been this way for over a decade without problem. Therefore, periods are not in and of themselves an illness (and to suggest otherwise demonstrates your lack of knowledge as to basic human functions). If a woman does experience symptoms of illness during her period, she may take days off. But not all women, including healthy ones, should be forced to take days off when they are perfectly healthy. Just like any sickness, it is for the person to decide. Allah tells us in the Quran that it "is better" if we fast, though, and exempts only the sick and traveling (at their discretion). So we should try not to make up excuses.
