Can parents eat their child's aqiqah meat? Are there any restrictions?
The truth is, it is permissible for the child's parents to eat their child's meat aqiqah. This is based on the hadith from 'Aisyah on the issue of aqiqah,
يُجْعَلُ جُدُوْلاً ، يُؤْكَلُ وَيُطْعَمُ
"Finally it is made into bones (which are not broken) to eat and feed the others." (Narrated by Ibn Abi Syaibah juz 5). Judulan or jadl is any bone that is stored without being broken down and does not mix with others. This is mentioned in Al-Qamus Al-Muhith, p. 975.
Shaykh Muhammad bin Salih Al-'Uthaimin said in Syarh Al-Mumthi '(7: 545), that the title is an animal limb in the form of a bone that is not broken. The bone is taken from the joints.
It is also stated in the Fatwa Al-Lajnah Ad-Daimah, people who have aqat aqiqah can share the results of aqiqah meat in the form of raw or cooked meat. These results can be left to the poor, neighbors, relatives or close friends. His family can eat from him. He can also invite the poor, the rich to eat at his house. This matter is spacious.
That is what Shaykh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid's fatwa has been extracted from in his dataAl-Islam Sual wa Answers no. 20646. Read also the fatwa of Shaykh Muhammad bin Salih Al-'Uthaimin here.
Hope it is of benefit. Only Allah gives taufik and guidance.
