Distributing qurbaani meat to relatives

Q: A person thought that he will distribute 15 kg qurbaani meat to some beggars and he will tell his mother to distribute 15 kg meat to some beggars, but after that his mother said to him that you can distribute that meat 15kg) among relatives (who cannot do qurbaani), poor people and beggars. The person distributed that meat to relatives, beggars and poor people. Is there any problem in that?

A: No, there is no problem. In fact distributing the meat with one's poor relatives and sharing it with them is much more rewarding than distributing the meat among other poor.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
