(Fatwa: 1437/1109/D=01/1434)

A woman may also slaughter animal. It is also mustahab for a woman to slaughter her qurbani animal, but if she is not capable to slaughter correctly then she should be present there or see it behind the curtain.
قال فى تنوير الابصار وان يذبح بيده ان علم ذالك والا يعلمه شهدها بنفسه ويامر غيره بالذبح كى لا يجعلها ميتة (الدر مع الرد ج 5 ص 231)
روى الكرخى باسناده الى عمران ابن الحصين قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قومى يا فاطمة فاشهدى اضحتيك فانه يغفر لك باول قطرة من دمها كل ذنب عملته وقولى ان صلاتى ونسكى ومحياى ومماتى لله رب العالمين لا شريك له (الدر مع الرد ج 5 ص 231)
