The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ask an Alim

Is it permissible to do late Aqiqah


I didn’t do Aqiqa of my children when they born and now they are grown up to 20+ age. Can I do their Aqiqa now? Because I came to know a hadees that one will not seek forgiveness from his children at the day of judgement if that child’s Aaqiqa is not performed in the world life.

What to do now? please help


Wa Alaikum al-salam

I think what you meant is Aqiqah. Aqiqah is not compolsary but it is mustahab and it would be done even when the child is grown. so you can do Aqiqah for your children.
