Delaying aqeeqah if one has enough money for qurbaani only

Q: Asking for a family member... It's now time for qurbaani but they have money saved with the intention for aqeeqah for their son... What should be done in this case?

A: If qurbaani is compulsory upon them, then they should first do their waajib qurbaani. They may delay the aqeeqah for a later period.

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