“It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him.” (Al-Quran; Surah Al-Hajj 22:37)
Qurbani is obligatory on each Muslim (male or female) who holds a Nisab i.e. minimal level of wealth. It is highly virtuous for one on whom Qurbani is not obligatory to offer sacrifice for the pleasure of Allah. He will be eligible for all the reward mentioned in the Ahadeeth.
“Whoever has the capacity to sacrifice and does not do so, should not come to the place where Eid prayer is offered.” (Hadith; Ibne Majah)
If someone out of his/her ignorance and negligence did not offer Qurbani, he should then give the price of Qurbani as Sadaqah. This does not mean that the Sadaqah is an alternative.
