Sacrificing after ‘Eid Salaah

Fatwaa ID: 1291

Aslam o alaikum

Is it necessary to do sacrifice after eid ul adha prayer?

If yes, what if a person is praying eid in one country but doing sacrifice in their home country?

Also, the sunnah of not cutting hair and nail, would that be applicable on country where you will offer eid prayer or the country where you will do sacrifice?

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

  1. It is necessary to sacrifice the qurbaani animal after the ‘Eid Salaah of that place.
  2. The country wherein the qurbaani is being done will be considered. As long as the animal is slaughtered after the ‘Eid Salaah is performed in that country, that will be fine.
  3. The nails and hairs should not be cut until the animal is slaughtered.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
