What You Need to Know About Aqeeqah?

According to Sahih Ahadith, Aqeeqah is a Sunnah act and a Sadqah. Parents perform this Sadqah after the birth of their child, usually, on the seventh day. While it involves sacrificing an animal, some parents may not be able to do it within a few days after the bird of their child, so they can postpone it for any convenient time. But it should be performed before the child reaches puberty.

There are different rules for performing the Aqeeqah of a boy and a girl as evident from different Ahadees. On one occasion, the Holy Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him) has been narrated as directing his followers to slaughter two sheep (or goats) for a boy and one sheep (or a goat) for a girl. Regarding gender of the animal, it can be either male or female.


There are several benefits of performing Aqeeqah. First, it is a Sadqah which repels evil fortune and brings good fortune for the newborn. Secondly, it is a Sunnah act and reviving the Sunnah of the Rasool (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him) entitles you for Allah’s blessings and bounties.

Did you Know?

The Arabs used to perform Aqeeqah even before the advent of Islam. However, the rules and traditions were different. In Islam, after slaughtering the animal, the child’s head is shaved and smeared with saffron. Before Islam, the pagan Arabs used to smear the child’s head with the blood of the slaughtered animal. (Abu Dawood, 2843)
