Online qurbaani

Fatwaa ID: 1272


Is there an online Kurbani?

So many sites shows donate $ for your kurbani.
$Xxx dollars per kurbani
This nation, that nation, these people those people.

Is this ok?
If we donate to Bangladesh… their Eid is before our Eid prayer…. If they cut the Kurbani for us… this is technically before our Eid prayer….
Is that right???
Meaning can Qurbani be done prior to Eid Salaah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. Many welfare organizations provide the service of offering qurbaani on your behalf. They often choose places that are less fortunate to increase the benefit. The organizations may have online platforms to advertise this service. It is permissible to offer qurbaani through them. When doing so, they are your representatives. Hence, you should choose a reputable and reliable organization. You must apply your due diligence to ensure that your qurbaani is being completed appropriately.
  2. The place wherein the qurbaani will take place is the place of consideration. As long as it is qurbaani time in that place, the qurbaani will be valid even if it is not so yet in the place of the person for whom it is being done.
    It should be noted that there is a difference of opinion in this regard. The above is our humble position.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
