According to Islamic rules, a Muslim may authorize any other trusted person(s) in performing the slaughtering ritual on his or her behalf. The person(s) authorized must discharge the obligation in such a manner that would fulfill the Islamic requirements relevant to this undertaking.
Performing the sacrificial offering is not a pre-requisite for the complete termination of the state of Ihram. Pilgrims, however, should be reassured that the actual slaughtering of the sacrificial animals starts immediately after Eid-Aladha prayer and is usually completed before the sunset of the 13th of Zul Hijah (the last day of the Tashreeq days), as the Prophet (PBUH) said: Slaughtering; – all the Tashreeq days. Ahmed
Obviously, the proxy system is designed for the convenience of pilgrims, especially the elderly amongst them, sparing them the time and the trouble of inching and struggling their way through the crowds to get to the slaughterhouse.
The proxy will be appointed as an authorized by the pilgrim to carry out the sacrifice ritual on his or her behalf, or to the person acting on behalf of at least 50 pilgrims to represent the group in conducting or supervising of slaughtering. Group representatives are entitled to take a number of slaughtered sheep, fully skinned and cleaned, if they so desire.
In order to be admitted into the slaughterhouse, group representatives must produce the permits given to them by EasyHajj Society at the time of buying the coupons.
