Doing Qurbani of an animal with a disease - Will it be accepted?


Assalamu alykum warahmTullah. 
Sir, I have a question regarding qurbani. 
If an animal is slaughtered for qurbani and after that we came to know that the animal has a disease that its meat can not be eaten because of that disease. Is the qurbani valid or not? 

Wassalamu alykum warahmTullah


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

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

In the enquired situation, the qurbani will be valid. The validity of the qurbani does not depend on the meat being eaten or not.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

تحفة الفقهاء (3/ 85) [1]

وَلَا تجوز الشَّاة عَن أَكثر من الْوَاحِد وَإِن كَانَت عَظِيمَة قيمتهَا قيمَة شَاتين لِأَن الْقرْبَة إِرَاقَة الدَّم وَذَلِكَ لَا يتَفَاوَت

بدائع الصنائع في ترتيب الشرائع (5/ 70)

ما قدره فلا يجوز الشاة والمعز إلا عن واحد وإن كانت عظيمة سمينة تساوي شاتين مما يجوز أن يضحى بهما؛ لأن القياس في الإبل والبقر أن لا يجوز فيهما الاشتراك؛ لأن القربة في هذا الباب إراقة الدم وأنها لا تحتمل التجزئة؛ لأنها ذبح واحد وإنما عرفنا جواز ذلك بالخبر فبقي الأمر في الغنم على أصل القياس


بدائع الصنائع في ترتيب الشرائع (5/ 71)

ولنا) أن القربة في إراقة الدم وأنها لا تتجزأ؛ لأنها ذبح واحد فإن لم يقع قربة من البعض لا يقع قربة من الباقين ضرورة عدم التجزؤ ولو أرادوا القربة؛ الأضحية أو غيرها من القرب أجزأهم سواء كانت القربة واجبة أو تطوعا أو وجبت على البعض دون البعض
