Answered by Shaykh Yūsuf Badāt

Question:

Sacrificial meat should be divided in 3 parts. One for ourselves, 2nd for relatives and 3rd for charity. Can we give meat from sacrifice to non Muslims especially from the charity portion?

Answer:

In the Name of God, the Most Merciful, Most Kind

Thank you/ Jazāk Allāh Khayr for your question.

Yes, it is permissible, in fact encouraged to give meats from ritual slaughtered animals at the occasion of ʿEīd al-Aḍḥā, to non Muslims (to establish close ties), from any portion of the Uḍḥiyyah. (See Mukhtaṣar al –Qurdūrī, Al-Mugnīy).

ʿAbd Allāh bin ʿAmr (may God be pleased with him) gave meat from his ritual slaughter, to his Jewish neighbour. (See: Tirmidhī)

And Allāh Knows Best
