Qurbani and Aqeeqah for adults

Question ID: 31896

Assalamu alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, I want to know about Aqeeqah.

1) Me, my younger brother and my father (including mother) wish to do qurbani and so we contribute money to buy a cow. Now with qurbani we also want to do aqeeqah of myself and my younger brother and if possible then of mother also. So what is the procedure to do qurbani and aqeeqah on the same animal. First I will do qurbani and then do aqeeqah but how is that possible, as I can only do the zabihah of the cow once. Then how to do aqeeqah on that. What and how the dua should be read. How should the distribution be done. Please explain in detail.

2.) I am 32 years of age so when my brother and I will do aqiqah on this animal will we have to shave off our head on the qurbani day as we are doing the aqiqah on the same animal and same day, and give the amount or silver in charity equal in weight of the hair. Or by omitting the shaving of the head the aqiqah be valid also.

3) If we do Aqiqah of our mother so will she have to shave also or what is the process in case of girls who have grown up and Aqiqah is being performed on behalf of them.

4.) My date of birth is 20/04/1982 this is according to Gregorian (Christian) calendar. What will be my date of birth according to Islamic calendar i.e. according to Hijri calendar (lunar). I have found out through the net and it showed 25/6/1402 Tuesday Jamadi Ussani. Is this calculation correct? Please tell me I want to know.

Jazzak Allah!

1) The cow has 7 shares. Qurbaani for each person is one share each. Aqeeqah for a male is 2 shares and for a female it is 1 share. Firstly, decide who is Qurbaani Waajib upon. Count those shares then do the Aqeeqah for whom you want. When slaughtering make the necessary intention.

2) No shaving of the hair is to be done.

3) No shaving.

4) Tuesday, Jamad Ussani.
