Aqiqah – celebrate the birth of your child

What is Aqiqah?

‘Aqīq consists of giving a name to the baby, shaving its hair, and offering a sacrifice.  It is  recommended that the new-born baby should be given either a compound name containing one of the most beautiful names of Allah (e.g. ‘Abd al-Hamīd), or the name of holy figures.

Aqiqah, an Islamic terminology, is defined as the animal that is slaughtered on the occasion of child birth. For the child there should be aqiqah, on behalf of the child make sacrifice and remove the hair. Hadith (Bukhari)
