Nafl qurbaani for Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and other family members in one animal

Q: Although multiple intentions are permissible for nafl qurbaani, is it munaasib (appropriate) to perform a nafl qurbaani with the intention for Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and other deceased family members in one animal? (i.e. 1 sheep for Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and ones deceased parents/grandparents, etc.)

A: It is not wrong, though many of the righteous prefer to do something exclusive for Hadhrat Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
