Multiple Intentions In a Nafl Qurbani

Question

Is it permissible to make multiple intensions for one nafl qurbaani e.g. one sheep and a person makes intention for his late father, late mother, Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam etc?

Answer

Yes, this is permissible that you purchase a sheep on your name for Nafl Qurbani and thereafter send the Thawaab/Reward of that Qurbani to multiple deceased people.

After all, Rasulullah Sallalllahu Alaihi Wasallam himself slaughtered one sheep and conveyed the reward to all those members of his Ummat who could not make Qurbani.

فلا يجوز الشاة والمعز إلا عن واحد وإن كانت عظيمة سمينة تساوي شاتين مما يجوز أن يضحى بهما … فإن قيل: أليس أنه روي أن رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – ضحى بكبشين أملحين أحدهما عن نفسه والآخر عمن لا يذبح من أمته فكيف ضحى بشاة واحدة عن أمته؟ – عليه الصلاة والسلام

(فالجواب) أنه – عليه الصلاة والسلام – إنما فعل ذلك لأجل الثواب ؛ وهو أنه جعل ثواب تضحيته بشاة واحدة لأمته لا للإجزاء وسقوط التعبد عنهم.
