Question:

Assalamu Alaikum,

I want to check whether I can take my 1yr old son to Umrah without doing Aqeeqah. Some people are telling that without Aqeeqah we cannot take.

It would be great if you can help me in finding this answer. Allah Hafiz


Answer:

Wa Alaikum As Salem,

Yes, you can take your one year old son for Umrah. Whether his aqeeqah was done or not, it has no implication or connection with Umrah.

Also, Aqeeqah is only Mustahab (commendable) and it is not essential, nor is a ’right of the child’ which has been imposed by the sacred Shariah.

And Allah knows best,
