Distributing ones Qurbani meat amongst non-Muslims

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. I have heard that we can not donate Qurbani (distribute) to non Muslims. Is it OK to share the food with them? As an example, the day we cooked Qurbani meat for lunch, we get some non Muslim visitors, can we serve that meat to them?

A. A person slaughtering a Qurbaani/Udhiyyah animal may eat from its meat, keep some meat for his family and feed the poor and needy from its meat (Muslim or non-Muslim). (Durarul Hukkaam 1/270)
