The method of Qurbani

(Regardless of whether it is Qurbani or generally slaughtering an animal) the Sunnah is that the slaughterer and the animal are facing the Qibla. In our area (Pakistan & India), the Qibla is towards the west which is why the head of the animal should be directed towards the South so that the animal is laid on its left hand side and it's back is towards the east. This way, its face will be directed towards the Qibla. The slaughterer should place his right foot upon the right side of the animals' neck, before slaughtering it. If he did not face towards the Qibla or did not face the animal towards Qibla, it will be considered as Makrooh. (Fatawa-e-Razaviya, V20, P216-217, Raza Foundation Markaz-ul-Auliya Lahore)

Before sacrificing the animal of Qurbani, recite the following Dua:

Translation from Kanzul-Imaan: I have directed my attention towards Him Who has created the heavens and the earth, am devoted solely to Him, and am not of the polytheists. Undoubtedly my prayers and my sacrifices, and my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the Creation. He has no partner; this is what I have been commanded, and I am the first Muslim.

Place your right foot upon the place near the neck of the animal and after reading

(Oh Allah, for you and with your given ability, in the name of Allah, Allah is the greatest.)

slaughter the animal quickly with a sharp knife. If the Qurbani is for oneself, recite the following after the slaughter:

Oh Allah , accept from me the way you accepted from your khaleel (friend) Ibraheem and the way you accepted from your beloved Muhammad .

If the Qurbani is on the behalf of someone else then in the above Arabic Dua, replace  with then the name of the person. (At the time of the sacrifice, do not place your foot upon its abdomen because sometimes, food also comes out along with the blood)۔

Madani request :- When reciting the Dua whilst looking at it, avoid staining the booklet with the animals' blood.
