If one receives a gift in the form of sheep and one would like to use this in lieu of Qurbani, is this permissible?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for one to slaughter a gifted sheep for Qurbani[1] on condition that one makes the intention for Qurbani.[2]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

  1رجل وهب لرجل شاة، فضحي بها الموهوب له أو ذبحها لمتعة او جزاء صيد، ثم رجع الواهب في الهبة، جازة الأضحية و المتعة (فتاوي قاضيخان، ج 3، كتاب الأضحية، ص 243، العلمية)

2 و اما ركنها فذبح ما يجوز ذبحه في الأضحية بنية الأضحية في أيامها لأن ركن الشئ ما يقوم به ذلك الشئ (الفتاوي الهندية، كتاب الاضحية، ج 5، ص 291، رشيديه)
