Saturday 25-Jul-2020, 2:44AM / 108

Question: If a household has a lot of members, is one slaughter sufficient for them?

Answer: 'Yes, it is sufficient. A report came in Il'zaamaat of ad-Daaraqutnee that one of the Companions said: We would slaughter just a ram (for all the members of our family) and our neighbours never ceased to think we were misers..'

Yes, a ram is sufficient for a household and a family which depends on the same benefactor.

‏أما إذا كانوا أسرة فهل تجزء عنهم شاة؟ 
 نعم تجزئ عنهم شاة فقد جاء في "الإلزامات" للدارقطني أن بعض الصحابة يقول: كنا نضحي بالشاة فما زال جيراننا يبخلوننا
فنعم تجزئ الشاة عن أهل البيت الواحد وعن الأسرة الواحدة التي نفقتها واحدة
