When does Qurbaani become waajib?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I wanted to find out what are the conditions that make Qurbaani wajib and if these conditions are not met can it be regarded as Qurbaani wajib and send one’s money overseas? (Because of the price being lower overseas)


A: Qurbani will be wajib on a baaligh sane muslim who is a muqeem and possesses the zakaat nisaab amount of wealth during the days of qurbani.

It does not become wajib by regarding it as wajib. It is still optional.

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