Q. Can 1 sheep or goat be sacrificed for all marhooms in the family.
(Question published as received)
Answer:
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)
