Is Qurbani wajib for my wife? if the aqiqah is not done in her name?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Aqiqah is not performed on my wife’s name by her parents, so I want to do aqiqah in her name. She is 25 years old; also I want to know since Eid al-Azha is nearing. Can I offer qurbani in her name before doing aqiqah in her name?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Yes, you may do qurbani in her name before the aqiqah also, you may do aqiqah later.

Allah knows Best!
