QURBANI / SACRIFICE:
We follow the Sunnah/footsteps of our grand father, Prophet Ibrahim (Khalil ul Allah) PBUH 

We’ll learn about it in detail at Friday sermons and Friday night lecture after Ishaa Salah 
In Sha Allah 

Prophet PBUH firmly taught us:
"من وجد سعة، ولم يضحّي، فلا يقربن مصلانا"

(Who could afford to sacrifice, but chooses not to, should not come to our (Eid) prayer).

We’ve learned from the scholars of Sahabah RA:
Those who have to pay Zakah, it’s Wajib upon them to sacrifice 

According to the majority of scholars, head of the household would do the sacrifice/Qurbani for himself or herself and on behalf of the whole family members 

How to divide the meat of sacrifice:
The Sunnah is to divide the meet into three portions:
One third for ourselves, one third for relatives/close friends or neighbors and last one third for the needy and poor 
Our holy mentor PBUH sacrificed two rams, one from his own, another on behalf of the whole ummah (us)

Saydna Ali RA, used to sacrifice also two, from his own and on behalf of the holy prophet Muhammad PBUH 

TAKBEERAT
اللهُ أكبر، اللهُ أكبر، لا إلٰه إلا الله، والله أكبر، الله أكبر وللهِ الحمد
(ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR, LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH
ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR WA LILLAHIL HAMD)

We say these Takbeerat out loud stating from the Fajr of 9th Zul Hijjah (day of Arafah), until the end of day 13th of Zul Hijjah (as last Hajji leaves Mina and complete their Hajj), we say it specifically after each Salah, entering n existing our houses, and whenever we remember them.
