Making an extra Nafl Qurbani

Q: When making an extra nafl Qurbani, over and above one’s wajib Qurbani, can one make the niyyat (intention) for Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and include deceased relatives and other Muslims in the reward of one animal ? Also can one intend all deceased Muslims with one animal ?

A: Yes, one may make multiple intentions with one Nafl Qurbani and this may also include all deceased Muslims. However, if a person is able to afford separate animals for nafl (optional) Qurbani, then this is more meritorious.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
