Asalaamu Alaikum Mufti
I hope that this email reaches you in good health.
Please advise on the following regarding Qurbani:
1. What should be read at the time of the actual slaughtering of the animal?
2. Is it permissible to give away the entire animal in charity (to the poor of the community) after slaughtering and cleaning the animal?
3. Is it permissible to send money to other areas for Qurbaani to do there? Comment on the individual reasons/intentions stated below and the permissibility of each reasoning
a. Poor and tradegy afflicted areas
b. Cheaper cattle elsewhere as compared to home country and will allow the individual to perform qurbani
c. Ease and Convenience
d. If a sheep costed R1200 locally, overseas 4-5 sheep can be done. This meat distributed will be more and hence more reward.
