Qurbani Locally Or Abroad


Recommended Posts

Question and Answer:

Q. Is it preferable to do Qurbani locally or abroad, in countries like India, Palestine, etc.?




A. Feeding the destitute and needy abroad is indeed meritorious. However, based on the fact that Rasulullah Sallallaahu alaihi wasallam advised his beloved daughter Faatimah Radhi-Allaahu anha to personally witness her Qurbani being carried out, it would be more virtuous to perform Qurbani locally.


If an individual has surplus funds to purchase more than one share of Qurbani, then one can consider doing Nafl Qurbani abroad. (Jamiatul Ulama South Africa)
