Aqeeqah for adults

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We have three grown up daughters.They were all born in the western countries and we could not even remember performing the aqiqa for them. I am wondering if we can now perform the aqiqa for them though they are adults and how to perform it. 


A: Yes, it is permissible. You will slaughter one sheep or goat for each daughter with the intention of performing aqeeqah for them.

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