Aqeeqah Abroad

Q: When one intends performing Aqiqah, is one able to discharge this intention by using an an international Qurbani effort for example those from Africa or abroad? Will this be permisable or will it have to be performed locally?

A: The Aqeeqah can be done abroad. Specify to the organisers that it is Aqeeqah.

However in so doing you will miss out the Sunnah of having it done on the seventh day, because the people doing it will not be able to guarantee that it will be done on the seventh day but your Aqeeqah will be valid
