To partake of the Qurbani animal is a Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). It is reported in one narration that on the Day of Eidul Adha Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) would not eat anything until he had returned (from the Eid Salaah). Thereafter he would partake of his Qurbani animal (Zaila'ee). In another narration it is mentioned that he would eat from the liver of his Qurbani animal (Talkhees).

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) also encouraged others to eat from the Qurbani animal. Hazrath Abu Hurairah (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: "when one of you has sacrificed an animal, he should eat therefrom" (Ahmad -  I'laaus Sunan vol.17, pg.267).
