Halal & Haram

Can we give the guts of the sacrifice [qurbani] to a non-Muslim?

Question: What is the verdict of the Islamic scholars in this matter; Is it allowed or disallowed to give the sacrificial [qurbani] aqiqa meat to an unbeliever? Likewise, what is it like to give an unbeliever the guts and the intestines of the sacrifice [qurbani]? And if someone in a state of unknowing gave away the meat or the guts and so on, will his sacrifice be done or not?
 
Answer:
Intestines are not things to be eaten, they should be thrown away. If it is taken by an unbeliever or given to an unbeliever, then there is no harm.
 
الْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَالْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ
“Vile things are for vile people, and vile people are for vile things.” [26:24]
 
It is not allowed to give the meat to the unbelievers living here, it is particularly the right of the Muslims.
 
وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَالطَّيِّبُونَ لِلطَّيِّبَاتِ
“Virtuous things are for virtuous people, and virtuous people are for virtuous things.” [26:24]
 

Even then, if someone gives out of their ignorance, no harm will occur in the sacrifice [qurbani]. And He knows best.
