Question

If a man is blessed with children
and did not offer ‘aqeeqah for them
until they were more than four
years old, is it permissible for him
to offer ‘aqeeqah for them after this
age? If that is the case, then is it
permissible for him to slaughter the
‘aqeeqah for them outside of the
city where they were born? Because
in the city where he lives there are
no poor people who need meat, but
there is a village far away from the
place where they were born in
which there are people who are
deserving of charity. Is it
permissible for the ‘aqeeqah to
slaughtered there and the meat
given in charity to those people? Or
is it not stipulated that the meat of
the ‘aqeeqah should be eaten by the
poor?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
There is nothing wrong with that.
There is nothing wrong with
slaughtering the ‘aqeeqah on their
behalf, even if they have passed the
age of four years, although it would
have been better to hasten to do it.
But if it has been delayed, then
there is nothing wrong with doing
this; he may slaughter it whenever
he can afford to do that.
With regard to where the ‘aqeeqah
is slaughtered, there is no specific
place for that; rather it is
permissible to slaughter it in the
city where they were born, or
elsewhere, because it is an act of
worship for which no place is
specified.
With regard to eating the meat, the
‘aqeeqah comes under the same
ruling as the udhiyah (sacrifice); it
is mustahabb for the one who
offers it to eat from it himself, to
give some in charity, and to give
some as gifts to his neighbours and
friends.

ash-Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan
(2/572)
And Allah knows best.
