The Prophet PBUH said: “Every newborn baby is in pledge for his Aqeeqah, a Sacrifice is made for him on the seventh day, his head is shaved and he (or she) is given a name” [Abu-Dawood].
What is Aqeeqah?
Aqeeqah is a part of the legacy inherited from Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) and a great Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). When a baby is born, it is recommended by our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to slaughter a sheep on behalf of the baby in celebration of its birth. This Sunnah should occur seven days’ post-birth, although it can also be performed after that period. Our Prophet (PBUH) reported, the sacrifice for a male baby is two sheep and for a female one sheep.
