Asalamualkium, An elderly lady who lives off the earnings of her husbands pensions made the intention to Allah that at the time of her husband passing out she would sacrifice a cow if nothing serious was wrong with him. Luckily her husband passed out due to blood difficision nothing serious. Now the elderly lady although having made the intention that she would sacrifice a cow on his behalf lives on an earning of £100 and a cow at the bare minimum is near £500. This is clearly not affordable for her. Please can you advise how this works. She has a son who would need to struggle and provide the funds for the cow but wouldnt this be from him and not the mother if he was to provide the money for the cow ? Hope this makes sense
