Doing Qurbaani for the deceased without doing Qurbaani for oneself

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can I do Qurbaani for my deceased parents this year without doing Qurbaani for myself. I did Qurbaani last year for myself.


A: If he is wealthy then he needs to do Qurbaani for himself. Thereafter, it is optional for him to do for his parents or any other person.

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