Am I liable/required to do Qurbani on eid ul adha?

Q:

Currently I have savings of Rs.1,00,000/- INR which is more than NISAAB. But i have saved this money for our family house which will be required to reconstruct . and total amount required for reconstruction is Rs.5,00,000/- so i am required to save more Rs.4,00,000/- INR .So my question is am i liable/required to do Qurbani on eid ul adha?

A:

Asalam Alaykum

If I understand the question correctly you are interested in knowing if it is obligatory upon you to offer qurbani considering your financial situation? The answer is no, for eid ul adha the qurbani is obligatory upon the pilgrims and only recommended for those who are not pilgrims of Hajj.
