Father giving sadaqah for newborn child’s hair

Question ID: 18473

Salaams mufti saheb. I want to my parents home for delivery. On the 7th day the child head must be shaven or cut by machine. When my husband phoned,I told him that our childs hair has been cut.So he tellls me,that I must tell him the weight of the hair so that he can give the sadaqah.MY husband phones me the following day, and I told him,that my father gave the sadaqah on estimation and not by weight.

1) Is it correct for my father to give the sadaqah.
2)If the sadaqah is given by estimation must it be given again.
3)Does my husband have to give sadaqah again if my father gave it.
4)Can my father do the aqeeqah without asking my husband.if he does, will the aqeeqah be valid.

1) Yes.
2) Check, if the estimation was more, then ok, otherwise make good the short fall.
3) No.
4) He should ask your husband. Consult, co-operate and move forward. Leaving the husband out as described is a formula for disunity and discord.
