Qurbaani for a musaafir who returns home

Q: A person was a musaafir on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of Zul Hijjah. However, before sunset on the 12th, he returned home. Will qurbaani be waajib upon him?

A: If he possesses the nisaab amount (of zakaat, regardless of whether it is zakaatable wealth or non zakaatable wealth which one no longer uses), qurbaani will be waajib upon him.

حتى لو كان مسافرا في أول الوقت ثم أقام في اخره تجب عليه وحتى لو كان فقيرا في أول الوقت ثم أيسر في اخره تجب عليه (الفتاوى الهندية 5/292)

ولا تشترط الإقامة في جميع الوقت حتى لو كان مسافرا في أول الوقت ثم أقام في آخره تجب عليه (بدائع الصنائع 5/63)
