Answered by: Maulana Tahsin Alam
My husband decided to give Qurbani and he is giving in single ownership then is it necessary to divide in 7?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The answer depends on what kind of animal was purchased for Qurbani. If one decides to slaughter a cow or camel, then seven shares can be made for seven people. If a sheep is to be slaughtered, there can only be one share.
