Q: In respect of Wajib quarbaani, is there any merit in slaughtering two animals and not just one? And can the meat of the one animal be retained wholly for oneself and only the meat of the second animal distributed?
A: The more animals slaughtered the greater the reward.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
