Optional Qurbani for multiple Marhooms

Nasihah (Advice): Virtue of Qurbani

Sayyidatuna Aaishah (Radhiyallahu Anha) has reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam has said, “There is no action a person can perform on the day of Qurbani that Allah loves more, than the sacrificing of animals.(Tirmizi)
Q. Can 1 sheep or goat be sacrificed for all marhooms in the family.
(Question published as received)
A. If the Qurbani is an optional one, then the intention for more than one Marhoom (deceased) can be made. Hence, one Qurbani can be made for all the Marhooms in one’s family. (Fataawa Rahimiyah vol.8 pg.25; Darul Ishaat)
