Q. Salaam.Can u make niyyat for multiple people in 1 qurbani(passed away)?Or does it have to be just one. e.g 1 sheep-Nabi(S.A.W) and marhoom
(Question published as received)
A. You may make the intention of the Thawaab (rewards) going to multiple people in one Qurbani animal if it is a Nafl (optional) Qurbani you are performing. When Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) performed Qurbani, he ordered two animals. He slaughtered one animal as his Wajib Qurbani and the other as optional on behalf of his entire Ummah (which consists of millions of individuals). With regards to the obligatory discharging of Qurbani 1 sheep will suffice for only one person.
