Allowing parents to do my qurbani

Answered by: Molana Muhammad Afzal Hussain


Assalam o Alaikum,

My parents have been doing combined qurbani for them and us, the children. Now that I am settled, and can do my own qurbani, i offered to pay my share in the Qurbani, which they are hesitant to accept. I want to know if it is obligatory for me to pay for my own qurbani or my parents can still do a qurbani for all of us, keeping in view that I can afford it.

Jazak Allah Kheir.



In the name of Allah the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

Doing combined Qurbani is  allowed. (Muslim Hadeeth No. 2322,2324).

And Offering Qurbani by parents for all family member is also allowed. This is due to the statement of Abu Ayyub (RA): "A man used to slaughter a sheep during the lifetime of the prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) for himself and his family members as well."

Only Allah knows best
