Slaughtering one’s Qurbaani in an abattoir outside the city after fajar Salaah

Q: If an abattoir outside the boundaries of the city where I live does Qurbani on my behalf between fajar and eid Salaah, is this Qurbaani valid?


A: If the abattoir is not in a city (i.e. it is not in a place where eid Salaah is performed instead it is in the farms or rural areas) then Qurbaani can be performed after the Fajar Salaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

والمعتبر مكان الأضحية لا مكان من عليه فحيلة مصري أراد التعجيل أن يخرجها لخارج المصر فيضح​ي بها إذا طلع الفجر مجتبى (الدر المختار 318/6)

قال الشامي : قوله ( والمعتبر مكان الأضحية إلخ ) فلو كانت في السواد والمضحى في المصر جازت قبل الصلاة وفي العكس لم تجز (رد المختار 318/6)​
