Qurbaani not carried out by the the person entrusted to perform it

Q: Is one’s quarbani valid if subsequently rumours are heard and suspicions arise that the person entrusted to perform the quarbani on one’s behalf overseas has not done so?


A: If the Qurbaani animal was not slaughtered, the Qurbaani is not valid. Therefore it is imperative that one appoints reliable people to carry out the Qurbaani on his behalf.

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