Default Qqurbani: One per person or one per Household?
:السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكَاتُه:

I would like to know from the Fiqhi masa'il of the 4 Matha'ib what is the correct ruling regarding Qurbani. Is it fardh/wajib on each person of the household or will one per household suffice. This question after I read the following quote by a Salafi inclined scholar:

It is a known practice in India and elsewhere that Muslims slaughter in Eidul Adíha a sheep for every member of the family. This is an extravagant as the Sunnah is to slaughter only one sheep on behalf of the whole family in the house. This is done by the head of the family, usually the father. It is he only who doesnít cut his hair or clip his nails from the beginning of Thul Hijjah until he slaughters his sacrifice (Shaykh Assim Al-Hakeem)
