Fines Of AED20,000 Will Be Issued For Certain Illegal Activities During Eid


The municipalities of Ajman and Sharjah have urged public not to hire an unlicensed butcher for illegal slaughtering of sacrificial animal during Eid Al Adha, as that can pose severe health and environmental risks. 

Any illegal butchers, restaurants or meat shops found slaughtering animals at unsanctioned places or inside homes will be penalized with a hefty fine of AED20,000. 

The municipalities have also urged residents to sacrifice animals only at designated abattoirs

These abattoirs are all set to meet the demand of the slaughter services, and the ceremony will commence from 7.30am on Arafah day and continue till 6pm.

“Due to the huge demand of the slaughter services and to prevent illegal slaughtering, Ajman municipality would provide a plot belonging to the abattoir for traders to sell the animals. This will make it easier for people to choose the animals and directly go to the abattoir for slaughtering, instead of seeking illegal butchers.”
