One of the frequently asked questions about the Qurbani rules is regarding giving Qurbani on behalf of the deceased, a sacred duty performed yearly during the holy month of Dhul Hijjah.
Giving Qurbani on behalf of the deceased is permissible with certain restrictions, conditions, and guidelines.
Conditions for giving Qurbani for deceased:
Giving Qurbani for deceased parents is permissible. The sacrifice should be performed with the intention of doing Qurbani for deceased parents. It can be combined with the Qurbani performed for one’s own family, as long as the intention is present.
Giving Qurbani on behalf of the deceased qualifies as a type of sadaqah jariyah for the deceased parents and loved ones.
Similar to giving Qurbani for a deceased parent, giving Qurbani for a deceased family member is also permissible.
It must fulfil the conditions stated above, as giving Qurbani on behalf of deceased family members should be combined with your own sacrifice and not as a separate sacrifice.
