Aqeeqah

Shafi'i Fiqh

It is Recommendable for a Person to Make Aqeeqah for himself if his Parents didn`t Perform it for him

I feel that may father didn`t make an Aqeeqah for me when I was born because he isn`t a God-fearing person and has never performed the prescribed prayers. I get in trouble constantly and think that is due to my father`s not having offered Aqeeqah on my behalf, and even if he did offer one, it may not have been accepted, I think. Is it permissible for the rational adult Muslim to perform Aqeeqah on his own behalf?
