Q. The Qurbani of a person in Trinidad is done in another country before that person prays his Salaat in his own country. Is his Qurbani valid?
A. The Qurbani of this person in Trinidad will be valid even though the Qurbani in the other country was done before he actually performed his Eid Salaah. The reason for this, is that by sending his money to a person in another country, he has actually made that person his agent (representative) for doing his Qurbani. As such, the law of doing Qurbani before Salaah will now be connected to the agent who resides in that country. Hence, this agent would ensure that he performs his Eid Salaah first and then do the Qurbani.
This law will no longer be connected to you in Trinidad, seeing that you have already appointed someone as your agent in another country.
And Allah knows best.
