Day of Aqeeqah

Question ID: 18718

Assalamu alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, I have a query. In India this year 2014 Insha Allah the Bakar Eid will be held on Monday 6th of October 2014. I was born on Tuesday 20th April 1982 according to (gregorian) calendar. So if I do aqiqah on the day of Qurbani will it be the seventh day. I mean to say will it be the multiple of seven as I have read in the article on your site “Aqeeqah and Walimah in the light of the Shariat.(pdf) Thereafter, Aqeeqah can be done on the subsequent days that are multiples of seven. This is Mustahab. If a person cannot remember the date of the child’s birth, all one needs to do is remember the day on which the child was born. Thereafter, take note of the day before,which will be the multiple of seven. For example, if the child was born on a Friday, the Aqeeqah may be done every Thursday afterwards.” (page 24)
So according to the above quote one can conclude that If I was born on Tuesday and if Aqeeqah is to be done on the seventh day then, the seventh day falls on Monday. So is this correct or by multiple of seven someting else is meant in the quote above.

Please help me understand.

Jazzak Allah!
