Combining aqeeqah and qurbaani


1. Can I do aqeeqah and qurbaani together?

2. If permissible, how to do for boys and girls?


1. Aqeeqah and qurbaani cannot be joined in a goat or sheep. However, both can be done in a big animal e.g. a cow or camel.

2. The aqeeqah for a boy is two sheep or goats and the aqeeqah for a girl is one sheep or goat.

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