Q. I would like to pose a question. If Qurbani was performed within the three day period, however the distribution of the meat was not yet performed or maybe the meat was not received from the butcher, is the Qurbani still valid? Can the Distribution still be made once it is received? Is there a time limitation in completing the distribution? Please advise.
A. There is no specific period to distributing the Qurbani meat. The time frame is for the validity of slaughtering the Qurbani animal during the three days of slaughtering. Hence, distributing the Qurbani meat even after the three days of slaughtering will not affect the validity of Qurbani offered during the three days of slaughtering in any way.
