Q. We will be doing Qurbani at our home this year. My son, my wife and I. I would like to know if it is permissible for my wife to do her own Qurbani?
A. It is permissible for your wife to do Qurbani by her own hands. (ad-Durrul Mukhtar, Vol: 6, Pg: 296, Darul Fikr)
Care should be taken to ensure that the laws of Hijab are observed and she is not exposed to non-Mahram males in the process.
