Is it permissible for me to eat from the animal that I slaughtered for Allah to protect my family?

Is it permissible for me to eat from the animal that I slaughtered for Allah to protect my family?

Answer:
It is permissible to eat from the non-vowed animal sacrifice, and the person is rewarded based on the amount of meat that he had given to the poor. However, there is no evidence in Islamic Sharia indicating that slaughtering an animal protects one`s family, but it is a way for thanking Allah, The Almighty, for his grace.
