Is Qurbani permissible before I perform my Eid Salah?



I have a question related to qurbani..

Is it permissible to give qurbani after the first eid salat in your city and before your own eid salat. 

Is it permissible to give qurbani after the eid salat of any one member of tthe family. 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


In principle, one is allowed to do his Qurbani after the first ‘Eid Salah is performed in his city irrespective of whether he has performed the ‘Eid Salah or not. [1] [2]

ولو ضحى بعد ما صلى أهل المسجد ولم يصل أهل الجبانة أجزأه استحسانا لأنها صلاة معتبرة حتى لو اكتفوا بها أجزأتهم وكذا على عكسه وقيل هو جائز قياسا واستحسانا

ولو ضحى بعد ما صلى أهل المسجد ولم يصل أهل الجبانة أجزأه استحسانا لأنها صلاة معتبرة حتى لو اكتفوا بها أجزأتهم وكذا عكسه  

ولو ضحى بعد ما قعد قدر التشهد في ظاهر الرواية لا يجوز هداية  

خانية وقال بعضهم يجوز ويكون مسيئا وهو رواية عن أبي يوسف


المحيط البرهاني، (8/461)

قال في الأجناس: أول وقت الأضحية لأهل السواد طلوع الفجر الثاني من يوم النحر، و في حق أهل المصر عند فراغ الامام من صلوة العيد يوم النحر


[2]If your Qurbani is being done elsewhere, then the location of where your Qurbani is will be taken into consideration and accordingly the Qurbani can be done after ‘Eid Salah of that place.


رد المحتار - ط. بابي الحلبي (6/ 318)

قهستاني قوله ( والمعتبر مكان الأضحية إلخ ) فلو كانت في السواد والمضحى في الصر جازت قبل الصلاة وفي العكس لم تجز
