Question:  What is the time period for Qurbani?

Answer: The Qurbani time period  starts at the break of dawn on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah  and ends at sunset on the 12th of Dhul-Hijjah. The best day for Qurbani is the 10th, followed by the 11th and then the 12th of Dhul Hijjah.

Qurbani is allowed at any time during this period, including the nights of the 10th and 11th, but not the night of the 12th. Slaughtering at night is valid, but it is better not to do so.

People living in towns or cities, where Eid Salah is performed may NOT  do their Qurbani until after the Eid Salah. Those residing in villages and farms that are at a distance from the place of Eid Salah may perform the Qurbani before Eid Salaah.
