Aqeeqa after the seventh day

Q: If the aqeeqa of a child is not done within 7 days, is it then done on 14th, 21st, 28th and so on days (multiple of 7 days) or can it be done on any days after 7 days? Please can you inform me on these issues.


A: If the aqeeqah was not done on the seventh day, it can be done any time after the seventh day.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
