If a man is married to two women - his first wife lives in the house with him and his second wife lives with her family - is he required to slaughter one animal or two (for his family on ʿīd al-aḍḥā)?


Slaughtering an animal for the house that he is in would suffice for the second wife too because she is from his family even if she is (currenty) living with her family (i.e. father and mother). If he says this is for me and the people of my house, she too is included even if she is currently living with her family.
