Keeping all the Qurbani meat for oneself

Q. We have completed our qurbani and received our meat from the butcher. We were able to give a third of the meat to a local charity. However we’re not able to distribute amongst family and friends due to the virus. Is it possible for us to keep more than a third for our own consumption?

A. The Qurbani meat may all be kept for oneself or distributed to whomever one wishes. However, it is preferable (Mustahab) to divide it into three portions; one portion for oneself, one portion for family and friends, and one portion to the poor and needy (Muslims and non-Muslims) where possible. (Tabyeen-ul-Haqaaiq 6/8)
