what coditions are for aqiqa of a girl child as per islam laws

الجواب حامداومصليا
It is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam to offer sacrifice of an animal (Aqiqah) when a child is born. Two sheep goats should be sacrificed on behalf of a baby boy and one goat or sheep should be sacrificed on behalf of a baby girl.
It is preferable to offer this sacrifice on the seventh day of the child's birth. If it is not done on the 7th day for some reason then it should be done on the 14th or 21st day of birth.
The meat may be consumed by the family members but it is better to share the meat with poor, relatives and family members as a thank to Allah.
And Allah knows best.
