Question By : mubin

A person asked me that if some one already performed Aqeeqah, then once again he wants to perform Aqeeqah, as he is interested to perform Aqeeqah annually. In this regard, what does Islam say? Is it against Sunnah or not?

The answer to your question is as follows

Performing Aqeeqah is Sunnah at 7th day after birth or 14th or 21st day. If someone does it after 21 days passed then it would be Nafl not Sunnah. Practicing Aqeeqah every year has no sense in Shari'ah. If the performer intends to prevent himself from ailments and diseases by this act, he should give this mush amount in charity or feed the poor or clothe them. Hence repeating Aqeeqah every year should be abandoned.
And Allah knows the best
