Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked: What is the correct opinion regarding the sacrifice [of ‘Eed al-Adh.haa]?
The Shaykh responded: That which is apparent to me is the sacrifice is not obligatory. However, it is a highly recommended Sunnah, and is [therefore] disliked for one who is able [to offer it] to abstain from doing so.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan was asked: Is it permissible to pay the price of [having] the [udh.hiyah] sacrifice [carried out], or is it better to [personally] undertake the [udh.hiyah] sacrifice and take some of [the meat]?
The Shaykh responded: It is better to sacrifice the udh.hiyah at home in the presence of his family, [locally] in his country – that is better, and if it is slaughtered [abroad on his behalf] here, then there is no harm [in doing so].
