Sacrificial meat can be processed first into corned beef, rendang, and so on before being distributed.
Indonesian Ulema Council allows the distribution of sacrificial meat in the form of processed, such as corned beef, rendang, or other, then packed both plastic and canned. “This can be done to expand the benefits provided there is no urgent need,” said Secretary of the MUI Fatwa Commission, Asrorun Ni’am Sholeh,
Asrorun said that in principle, the distribution of sacrificial meat was offered to be carried out immediately after being slaughtered. This is so that the benefits and objectives of sacrifice can be felt immediately, namely the joy of enjoying sacrificial meat. In its distribution it is offered to be distributed in raw form, in contrast to aqiqah, and distributed to those in need in the nearest area, “he said.

But if there are benefits considerations, sacrificial meat can be distributed in the form of processed. Especially to overcome the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. “It could be that, due to the impact of Covid-19, it is difficult for people to be distributed in the form of raw meat because they have to cook. So for the benefit, it can be distributed in the form of cooked or even in the form of corned beef or other prepared fast food,” he said.
Furthermore, Asrorun also said that sacrificial meat can also be preserved and postponed. This method can be done when the meat is abundant and in order to meet the needs for a long time. “Saving some of the sacrificial meat that has been processed and preserved within a certain time for the use and distribution to those who are more in need is a change on condition that there is no urgent need,” he said.
