Helping the student of the Qur'an to get education is also Sadaqah Jariyah. 

Qurbani; It is the slaughter of animals available for sacrifice with the intention of worshiping for the sake of Allah. 

لَنْيَنَالَاللّٰهَلُحُومُهَاوَلَادِمَٓاؤُ۬هَاوَلٰكِنْيَنَالُهُالتَّقْوٰىمِنْكُمْۜكَذٰلِكَسَخَّرَهَالَكُمْلِتُكَبِّرُوااللّٰهَعَلٰىمَاهَدٰيكُمْۜوَبَشِّرِالْمُحْسِن۪ينَ 

Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.( Haj, verse 37) 

The term “Qurbani” is derived from the Arabic word "to get closer" and is frequently performed as a worship that brings servants closer to Allah. Although Qurbanies are sacrificed in different occasions, they can basically be examined under 4 main headings. 

Qurbani Protects Against Troubles 

Wajib Qurbani 

فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْۜ 

So pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone]. (Al-Kawthar, verse 2)

According to the Hijri Calendar, the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th days of the Dhul Hijjah is Eid-ul Adha (The Feast of the Sacrifice). It is Wajib (Compulsory) for every Muslim who possess Nisab (minimum amount of wealth requiring them to pay Zakat) according to the Hanafi school of thought. The Qurbani that is sacrificed, is sacrificed for the person who slaughtered it, and it is hoped that with the first blood, all the sins of the owner of the Qurbani will be forgiven. 

The animal to be sacrificed must be selected in accordance with Islamic rules. Since this subject requires expertise in animal knowledge, professional support must be obtained. 

The animal should be taken to the place where it is to be slaughtered. The Islamic rules must be followed in the slaughtering process and the animal must be slaughtered by mentioning (Dhikr) the name of Allah without hurting the animal. 

Qurbani meat should be divided into three parts; leaving the first part to the family as a nafaqah, consuming the second part at the feast with friends, and the last part as sadaqah to the poor.  

One can distribute more than one piece or even the whole sacrifice to the poor. 
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ مَا عَمِلَ آدَمِيٌّ مِنْ عَمَلٍ يَوْمَ النَّحْرِ أَحَبَّ إِلَى اللَّهِ مِنْ إِهْرَاقِ الدَّمِ إِنَّهَا لَتَأْتِي يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ بِقُرُونِهَا وَأَشْعَارِهَا وَأَظْلَافِهَا وَأَنَّ الدَّمَ لَيَقَعُ مِنْ اللَّهِ بِمَكَانٍ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَقَعَ مِنْ الْأَرْضِ فَطِيبُوا بِهَا نَفْسًا  

Humankind (son of Adam) did not do anything more pleasant than shedding blood in the sight of Allah on the day of sacrificing. That sacrifice will come with horns, hair and nails on the day of judgment. Before the blood of the sacrifice falls to the ground, it is immediately accepted by God. For this reason, do not be disturbed because of the sacrifice you have cut, and your heart should be pleasant. ” (Ibn Maja, Edahi: 3 - Hadith) 

The Qurbani must be slaughtered by Qurbani's owner or a reliable Muslim person who recieved the Wakalah (Permission) from the Qurban's owner. 

The owner of the Qurbani can only benefit from the meat of the sacrifice. The owner CANNOT sell the sacrificial animal’s skin or horn.

عظموا أضحياكم فَإِنَّهَا عَلَى الصِّرَاط مَطَايَاكُمْ  

“Make sure that your sacrifices are big because they are your mounts on the as-sirāt (bridge)”
