Assalam o aliykum, Mufti Sb. My question is, I am living in KSA and will be KSA during eid ul adha. Can i ask somebody to do qurbani in pakistan on my behalf, or, as i am living here so i have to do qurbani here in KSA. Please advise according to quran, sunnah & ahadees.
Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
It is permissible for you to ask someone in Pakistan or another place to make the sacrifice on your behalf. If somone made the Qurbani on your behalf with your permission then it will stand valid and discharged. Those who are going to offer the Qurbani on your behalf should do so according to their time of Eid. In cities, Qurbani should be done after the Eid Salah is offered and in village where there is no Eid Salah then people are allowed to begin the Qurbani after the time of Fajr which is Subh-e Sadiq.
And Allah knows best.
