Prayers & Duties >> Qurbani (Slaughtering)

Question # : 1205

United States of America

Assalamu'alaikum, Since Camels are allowed to be slautered for Qurbanis, are Lamas and Alpacas also allowed?? These animals are from the family (breed) of Camels. Some brothers in the comunity have Lama farms and would be more than happy to have these available for Qurbanis instead of cows or lambs. JazakaAllah Khair

You told that these animals are from the family of camels, but you did not explain it. Either, you explain the same or consult local Ulama.
