Is it permissible to offer the Eid sacrifice in a non-Muslim country?

Is it permissible to offer the Eid sacrifice in a non-Muslim country?

Answer:
Eid sacrifice is permissible anywhere, and Islamic Sharia hasn`t determined that it should be in an Islamic country, but poor Muslims should be given a share in order for it to be valid since it is an act of worship. A portion of that Eid sacrifice should be given at least to one poor Muslim, and if that wasn`t possible then the one offering it should consume it along with his family.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
