Q: My family and that of my father, who is still alive, live in two separate houses 200m apart. Each family consists of seven individuals.
Is it permissible for my father and myself to offer a she-goat as a sacrificial animal on behalf of the two households or not?
My father and I equally share the cost of Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims). We have done this before, though we have an average income. (Part No. 11; Page No. 407) Kindly give us your Fatwa. May Allah reward you the best.
Legally speaking, each household should offer its own sacrificial animal.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
