Ask an Alim

Qurbani before Eid prayer in other country, so is my qurbani valid?

Q:

Asslam o Alaikum
As per a hadith qurbani (sacrifice) must be performed after Eid prayer, if done before prayer it will be considered sadaqah.
I live in UK and I ask my family in Pakistan to do qurbani for me there. Sometimes Eid is celebrated on same day in UK and Pakistan. There is a time difference of 5 hours. By the time I offer Eid prayer in UK, qurbani is already done in Pakistan before I pray Eid salat in UK. Is my qurbani valid?

Thanks
