He must be a really stingy salafi, because not only does he himself do only one Qurbani, he is stopping others from doing so as well.

I mean, nowadays, a sheep qurbani can be done for as little as 15 pounds in some places, and a cow, for 7 people, for 70 pounds - thats just 10 pounds per person!

Is he seriously saying people should stop doing one each? that they should miss out on the great rewards of Qurbani, for the price of a pizza?

And for him to quote the sunnah to stop people from doing qurbani is disgusting. There are millions of people dying in places like somalia and who would be delighted with a qurbani - so he should be encouraging all those who can affort it to do one, not whinge about 'waste'.

: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 Ad’ha 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 doesn’t cut his hair or clip his nails from the beginning of Thul Hijjah until he slaughters his sacrifice (Shaykh Assim Al-Hakeem)
