Each householder should offer one sheep as Ud-hiyah on behalf of himself and his family members
Q 1: We are a group of brothers and each one of us works at his district and lives with his family. On the occasion of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice), we gather at the home of our father. Does
the Ud-hiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims) our father offer suffice for all of us?
Or should every one offer his own Ud-hiyah? It should be known that we did not distribute our inheritance yet.Please advise; may Allah reward you with the best!

According to the Sunnah (acts, sayings or approvals of the Prophet), each householder should offer one sheep as Ud-hiyah on behalf of himself and his family members. Abu Ayyub (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "A man amongst us used to offer one sheep as Ud-hiyah on behalf of himself and his family members. So, they used to eat and feed others."
