Assalamo alykum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuhu
Is it permissible to do udhyia in the name of a deceased parent l? Or will it be considered a bida’h since it is only obligated on living people?
A group of scholars permitted this as a practice due to an acceptable report in the Musnad of Imam Ahmed stating that Ali (ra) used to sacrifice two animals on behalf of the Messenger (saw) after he passed away.
However, since this isn’t a practice known to be a norm of the Messenger (saw), it is better for it not to be made a yearly practice specifically on the day of Eid alAdhaa.
And Allah knows best.
