Affording `Aqiqah after a long time

Q 2: What is the ruling if a man did not offer `Aqiqah (sacrifice for newborn) on behalf of his children because he was poor but after several years Allah (Exalted be He) made him rich. Should he now offer `Aqiqah on their behalf?

A: If the reality is exactly as what is mentioned in the question, it is prescribed that he offers `Aqiqah on their behalf; two female sheep for each son. (Part No. 11; Page No. 442) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
