Question:

What is the ruling of sacrifice, if
all the members of the family is
earning and all live together.
They have to offer sacrifice
separately or one is enough for
all family.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger, may Allah exalt his
mention as well as that of his
family and all his companions
According to the view of the
majority of the scholars
'Eed sacrifice is desirable but
not an obligation for any
Muslim who is able to do it.
As regards the members of the
family who live together, if each
one of them spends on himself
whether he lives in a separate
accommodation or shares the
house with the others, then
each one of them should
slaughter for himself and he
should not join others in his
sacrifice, as stated by An-
Nafraawi from the Maaliki
School of jurisprudence, He
also said: 'Each one who offers
a sacrifice separately from the others
should intend the reward for his young
children and his wife. In case everyone
is avaricious to sacrifice a sheep for
himself, then they may act according to
the view of Imaams Ash-Shaafi'ee and
Abu Haneefah who are of the
view that one sheep is sufficient, and
so, slaughter only one sheep for all of
them.'

In case the father spends on all
the members of the family for
instance, then, in this case, the
sacrifice of their father is
sufficient for them if he intends
the reward for them as well.

Allah knows best.
