Q: I am shaafee. I want some clarification. I know the hanafee point of view. But i spoke to a shaafee scholar and need some clarification. For shaafee is it wajib for me to do a qurban for each member of the household? Is it necessary for each member to do the qurban? (email-urgent)
A: According to imaam shafee doing the qurban is sunnah (and NOT wajib). Head of household doing it would suffice for others under the care of the head of household. Thus it would not be necessary for a shafee to have each member under the head of household do the Qurban. One member w/could suffice for all. (However, doing so would be greatly rewarding.)
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
