Islam and the Quran

How much wealth should we own to be able to sacrifice?

Question: I will sacrifice a qurban but I have 90 gr. of gold together with some debt. When I subtract my debts, 70 gr. are left. I work with minimum salary. My mother is going to sacrifice her qurban at our home and if I do it additionally I will have to loan. Should I slaughter my own qurban from religion's point of view?

You should be having 85 grams of gold or equivalent amount of money or goods apart from your debts and basic needs to be responsible for sacrifice. If you are left with 70 gr. of gold after subtracting your debts, you do not have to sacrifice. Do not put yourself into difficulty.
