Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

May Allah bless your child and make him a coolness for your eyes. Ameen.

The child may be circumcised before or after the ‘aqiqah and hair shaving.[1] It should be noted that the preferred time for ‘aqiqah is the seventh day from birth. If this is not possible, then the fourteenth, twenty first and so on in multiples of seven.[2]  

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

سنن الترمذي (3/ 153)

حدثنا علي بن حجر، قال: أخبرنا علي بن مسهر، عن إسماعيل بن مسلم، عن الحسن، عن سمرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: الغلام مرتهن بعقيقته يذبح عنه يوم السابع، ويسمى، ويحلق رأسه حدثنا الحسن بن علي الخلال، قال: حدثنا يزيد بن هارون، قال: أخبرنا سعيد بن أبي عروبة، عن قتادة، عن الحسن، عن سمرة بن جندب، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم نحوه.

هذا حديث حسن صحيح والعمل على هذا عند أهل العلم يستحبون أن يذبح عن الغلام العقيقة يوم السابع، فإن لم يتهيأ يوم السابع فيوم الرابع عشر، فإن لم يتهيأ عق عنه يوم حاد وعشرين
