According to the Quran animals slaughtered during Hajj are for the consumption of Hajees. So:

1. Why then are animals slaughtered all over the world on Eid Al Adha?
2. Why are animals slaughtered way above the requirements of the congregation (Would God approve wastage?) and
3. Is the slaughtered meat cooked and eaten by all or some of those present?
4. Since this traditional worldwide practice is turning into a status symbol, would it not be better that people donate funds to local governments and let them slaughter animals in designated abattoirs and invite those in need to come collect meat? This would help the city maintain cleanliness and the eliminate stink after, and prevent little children from watching animals being slaughtered.
