I bought a sheep to sacrifice it,

Q 1: Some Bedouins cook the meat of their Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animals) and do not divide them into three parts and they gather to eat from them in banquets. I told them that it is better for them to divide the meat of their sacrifices. (Part No. 11; Page No. 403) They said that they all offer Ud-hiyah and they would gather to eat them one after the other. Is it permissible to break the bones of the sacrificial animal or not?

A: It is permissible for any group of people to slaughter their Ud-hiyah on any of the four days of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice), to break the bones of the sacrificial animals, to cook them, to eat from them together without dividing their meat. Yet it is also permissible for them to divide their meat and distribute their meat among themselves before or after cooking them and give from them in charity.
