Aqeeqah in two separate weeks

Fatwaa ID: 1878


A musallee asked

AsSalamuAlaikum imam saab, I wanted to find out if we can do aqiqah qurbani two separate days.
One goat one week and next goat next week or two weeks later for the same boy.

Ajeeboo wa tujaroo

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is mustahabb to perform the ‘aqeeqah on the seventh day. This includes both animals for the boy. Both animals should be slaughtered on the seventh day. To slaughter them over two weeks is contrary to the practice of Rasulullaah ﷺ. It will nonetheless be valid.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
