In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

A worker lives in another country and his children are living in his native country, and they are more in need than the people in the country he is working at present; is it better that he slaughters his Eed sacrifice in the country he is residing at present or send the Eed sacrifice money to his family back home?

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said:

What I see in this Specific Case is that he slaughters both in his present country of residence as well as back home. However, if he is not able to do so, then he should slaughter the sacrifice over there [i.e. for his family back home], so that they can enjoy themselves during the blessed days of Eed.
