Saying Bismillah of Udhiya for someone else

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

I would like to know if I can read the Qurbani dua while someone else kills the animal.

Please explain in detail.

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

It is recommended that you slaughter your own animal by your own hand. If you are unable to do so, you may ask someone else to slaughter on your behalf. The one slaughtering will read the dua.

It is also recommended that you witness its slaughter as Nabi (SAW) is reported to have said, “Stand Oh Fatima! Up to your udhiya (sacrificial animal) and witness it, for at the first drop of its blood all your sins will be forgiven.”[1]

And Allah SWT alone knows best.
