Aqiqah, in Islamic terminology, is defined as sacrifice of an animal on the occasion of a child’s birth.
The performance of Aqiqah is highly encouraged. It is to be performed by the parents or the guardians of the child. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions used to perform Aqiqah when they were bestowed with a new-born.
The following is a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) where he advised Aqiqah of a goat/sheep.
“Two sheep which resemble each other are to be sacrificed for a boy and one for a girl.”
- Prophet Muhammad SAW (Sunan Abu Dawood)
There are many benefits in the performance of Aqiqah. One is the announcing the birth of the baby. Being bestowed a child is a great blessing from the Creator. Another purpose is inviting family members, neighbour’s, and friends to celebrate the blessed occasion. The poor should be included in the celebration by offering them food and meat served on this occasion.
