Qurbaani on behlaf of one’s deceased father

Q: My father passed away and I want to make qurbani on behalf of him, but not make qurbani on behalf of my self while I am hasb-e slahiyat for zakat. Please tell me the right process.


A: When you are mustahiq of zakaat then qurbaani is not compulsory upon you. However, if you wish to do qurbaani on behalf of your marhoom father you may do so.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
