Slaughtering After The Day Of Eid-ul-Adhaa


Is it okay to qurbaani after the day of Eid? Is it greater in reward on the day of Eid? 


The occasion of Qurbaani expands over a period of approximately 3 days. It commences after the Eid Salaah on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah and terminates with the Athaan of the Maghrib Salaah, i.e. the sunset, on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah.

Qurbani can be done anytime between these two intervals if one is doing the Qurbani in the city. It is better to offer ones Qurbani during the daytime of these three (3) days, as cutting/slaughtering during the evening without sufficient light can result inunnecessary mistakes occurring.

Furthermore, it is most preferable to carry out the act of Qurbani on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah. This would be the best and most preferred time to do so. Thereafter, the 11th and 12th of Dhul-Hijjah, in order, will follow in merit.

أوقت الأضحية ثلاثة أيام؛ اليوم العاشر، والحادي عشر، والثاني عشر من ذي الحجة، فإذا غربت الشمس من اليوم الثاني عشر لا تجوز الأضحية بعد ذلك، وأفضلها أولها. قال علي رضي الله عنه: يصح النحر ثلاثة أيام، أفضلها أولها

(فجر) نصب على الظرفية (يوم النحر إلى آخر أيامه) وهي ثلاثة أفضلها أولها. 
(قوله أفضلها أولها) ثم الثاني ثم الثالث كما في القهستاني عن السراجية.
