أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ " إِذَا رَأَيْتُمْ
هِلاَلَ ذِي الْحِجَّةِ وَأَرَادَ أَحَدُكُمْ أَنْ يُضَحِّيَ

Why don't you share some meat with him? Who told you that Muslims can't share the meat of sacrifice to their non-Muslim friends? I have never heard of such ruling. The meat that is given to the poor (1/3) must be given to Muslims who are poor but you can share the meat which is part of your share (2/3) with your friend and other non-Muslims. Read the ...
Is it wajib or sunnah mu'akkadah??
This is a discussed matter:
Tha majority of scholars say it is sunnah mu'akkadah, this means a highly recommended sunnah.
Some scholars however, among them al-Awza'i, al-Laith ibn Sa'ad, Abu Hanifa and in one of two opinions of imam Ahmad consider it wajib!
As an evidence for wujub they use this hadith:
"He who can ...

The Prophet (ﷺ) sacrificed two horned rams which were white with black
markings and had been castrated. When he made them face the qiblah, he
said: I ...
The short answer is no fasting on one of the two 'auds is haram.
According to this Fatwa it is even neither permissible to fast nor the fasting will be valid neither for 'id al-adha عيد الأضحى nor for the 3 days after it (ayaam at-Tashreeq أيام التشريق) and if one fasts these days he should repeat it afterwards. If he was fasting before for compensation he ...
According to the Department Of Halal Certification:
The windpipe (throat), food-tract (oesophagus) and the two jugular veins must be cut.
Slaughtering must be made in the neck from the front (chest) to the back.
This is just a partial answer, I'll try to find evidence from the Hadith and Quran to suppprt this but if anyone finds it, feel free to ...
To supplement Medi1Saif's answer, evidence that is cited by the Hanafis to support their point of view includes:
قل إن صلاتي ونسكي ومحياي ومماتي لله رب العالمين لا شريك له وبذلك أمرت وأنا أول المسلمين
Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. And this I have been ...
First note that the majority of scholars consider offering a sacrifice for 'Id al-Adha a sunnah. Only the Hanafis -as a fiqh school- consider it as wajib for each person who is able to offer a sacrifice (Based on a hadith which was compilled by imam Ahmad in his Musnad, ibn Majah in his Sunan, by al-Bayhaqi in his as-Sunan al-Kubra and his teacher al-Hakim ...
Below is my personal translation of a relevant section from Zuhayli's book الفقه الإسلامي وأدلته. Note that the translation is paraphrased, and may contain mistakes and omissions.
اتفق الفقهاء على أن الشاة والمعز لا تجوز أضحيتهما إلا عن واحد، وتجزئ البدنة أو البقرة عن سبعة أشخاص، لحديث جابر: «نحرنا مع رسول الله صلّى الله عليه وسلم بالحديبية: البدنة عن ...
I am assuming that by type you mean the species (e.g. sheep, cow, camel) and not various other attributes.
There is difference of opinion on this.
The view of the Mailikis is that sheep are the best sacrifice because Allah substituted a ram for the sacrifice of Ishmael عليه السلام and described it as:
وفديناه بذبح عظيم
And We ransomed him with a great ...
We call the sacrifice as Qurban (in Indonesia)
The word Qurban, derived from the Arabic qurban, taken from the word: qaruba (fi'il Madhi) - yaqrabu (fi'il mudhari ') - Qurban wa qurbânan (mashdar). Means, approaching or approached (Matdawam, 1984).
According to the terms, qurban is anything that is used to draw closer to God in the form of animal sacrifice ...
Eids are celebrated on moon sighting. As it is possible to see the moon earlier in western parts of world i.e. UK (Because of age of moon) when compared to eastern countries i.e. (Pakistan/India) of the world. The eastern countries will see the moon on next day. Therefore it is possible to see a new moon on two different days and celebrate Eid on two ...
According to al-Jaziri, if the Imam does not offer a sacrifice, then the sacrifice may be made by the common people after an interval of time has passed in which it would have been possible for the Imam to have made the sacrifice. This would be the case if the Imam is not able to afford it.

This hadith is from Sahih Muslim (https://sunnah.com/muslim/35/57):
Umm Salama, the wife of Allah's Apostle (ﷺ), reported Allah's
Messenger (ﷺ) to have said: He who has a sacrificial animal with him
whom (he intends) to offer as sacrifice, and he enters the month of
Dhu'I-Hijja, he should not get his hair cut or nails trimmed until he
As a vegetarian Muslim, I found a workaround by donating to a mosque that will slaughter the same animal whether or not I donate. This provides sufficient diffusion of responsibility for me to feel comfortable about killing an animal, while still participating in an important Muslim event.
I personally do not feel that kindness to animals is a character ...
From religious perspective, Cow has no such significannce in Islam.
It's just an animal with four legs that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala created.
Forsaking the habit of eating beef, for the sake of maintaining peace in India is good decision.
But in Eid-al-Adha, slaughtering four legged animal for the sake of the showing utter devotion to Allah, is ...

In regards to your question
Gave qurban to parent
I found a hadith from Imam Baqir (امام الباقر) (a.s.) that said:
Commonly, Imam Ali (علیه السلام) didn't use to eat at ًQurban Day in order
to eat from his Qurbani's meat. / من لا یحضره الفقیه - ترجمه، ج2، ص:

“Is it allowed to shoot video while offering Qurbani?” As much as I made research, I didn’t find any related fatwa. In addition, as a logical rule, there cannot be an explicit verse regarding that, because there was not the devices like camera that … / consequently it seems to be permissible to ...
Well, I think Muhammad ahsan is a bit exagerating. There is also this hadeeth saying if you eat meat for 40 days continously, you will fall out of Islam and therefore not a muslim anymore. What I think is that we should adhere to the main principles of the sunna ALWAYS. But we can make choices regarding the details in which Allah has made halal. For example ...
As, the question is bit unclear.
Which part impossible/hard for you?
Is it buying the to-be-slaughtered animal, or slaughter the animal yourself?
For the first case, "yes, you are obliged if you can afford it. Still, you can maintain your "vegan" preference by not eating the meat.",
and for the second one, "No, you don't have to do it(...
