Assalamu Alaikum mufti.
I have a question regarding aqeeqah. I have a 7 month old boy baby.
I have been telling my husband to do his aqeeqah immediately after the babies birth but his father (my father-in-law) always puts him off saying that we must do the babies aqeeqah at his families function as he says it is better for the family to partake of the meat (i.e. he wants us to have a braai or use the meat at his daughters wedding even though she is not proposed yet). I believe that we must do the aqeeqah soon as we can afford it and what the father is saying is unfounded. I am afraid that we are getting sin for listening to his father.Please advise on this issue. Jazakallah. May allah reward you for all that you are doing for the ummah. Ameen.
