Dear Sir, Assalaam U Alekum !
I would like to know two things regarding the ruling of Aqeeqah as per Shariah
1- Amongst whom should be the slaughtered sheep/lamb/goat etc of Aqeeqah be distributed? Who are the people who have the right to receive Aqeeah’s distribution.
2- Can the family members such as parents / grandparents/ uncle/aunt eat the meat of the sacrificed animal of Aqeeqah.
Wa alaykum as-salam wa-rahmatullah wa-barakatuh,
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving,
Peace and blessings be upon His noble Prophet Muhammad.
A number of scholars recommend that the meat of `Aqeeqah should be distributed just like the meat of udhiyyah. However, there is no specific direction in the Prophetic Sunnah on how to distribute it. One thus may distribute it as he wishes. It may be distributed, cooked or uncooked, among relatives, friends, neighbors, or/and the poor.
Almighty Allah knows best.
