How should Qurbani and Aqiqah meat be distributed?

Question:

How should Qurbani and Aqiqah meat be distributed? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

The preferred method of distributing Qurbani/Aqiqah meat is to divide it into three portions: keep ⅓ for yourself and family, give ⅓ in charity to the poor, and give ⅓ to friends and relatives. There is no sin if a person decides to keep all of the meat for himself, however, if a person has a family and they are in need of that meat, it would be best to keep all of the meat for himself and his family. (Zul Hijjah awr Qurbani Key Fazaail wa Ahkam: p. 445 [Idara-e-Ghufran]; Naw Mawlud Key Ahkam aur Islami Naam: p. 132 [Idara-e-Ghufran]; Raddul Muhtar: v. 6, p. 328 [Darul Fikr]) The meat of Qurbani/Aqiqah may be cooked then distributed or given raw. Furthermore, you may cook it and invite people to partake in it. (Bahishti Zewar: p. 293 [DARUL ISHAAT]) Only Allah knows best Written by Maulana Mohammad Ahsan Osmani Checked and approved by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah Darul Ifta Birmingham
