‘Is it premissible in Islam to do qurbani oversea’

Q: Salamualikum,

I lived in Toronto, Canada. I have a question regarding Qurbani. I sent money back home to Pakistan to do my Eid ul Adha qurbani. Is it premissible in Islam to do qurbani oversea, because i perform my Eid prayer after the qurbani was done in Pakistan.  So my qurbani will be accepted or not.

  • Your animal being slaughtered as you have described would be permissible and part of a valid slaughter.
  • It is rewarding to help out by doing your Qurban overseas or in places that could use such assistance more than locally.
  • In the future, you can advice the one doing the sacrifice for you to do the sacrifice/slaughter/Qurban after you have performed your eid salah. This would be in conjunction as it relates to the  sunnah of doing the sacrifice after the eid salah. (This last part is not a binding rule.)

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
