I live in USA, I sent my Qurbani to Bangladesh


I live in USA, I sended money to Bangladesh for Qurbani and they pray Eid Ul Adha one day before me, so they will wait for Qurbani until I perform my Eid Ul Adha pray or not.


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh


If you are living in the USA and have sent money to Bangladesh for your qurbāni, then your qurbāni should be slaughtered after the ‘eid salāt of Bangladesh (the place where the animal is being slaughtered) and not after the ‘eid salāt of USA. The slaughterer in Bangladesh will not be required to wait for you to complete your ‘eid salāt. He may proceed with the slaughter immediately after his ‘eid salāt.


ثم المعتبر في ذلك مكان الأضحية حتى لو كانت في السواد والمضحى في المصر يجوز كما انشق الفجر ولو كان على العكس لا يجوز إلا بعد الصلاة
