What is Aqeeqa / Udhiyaa?

When a child is born, it is a Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to sacrifice livestock and distribute meat among friends and relatives and needy community members. This is called Aeeqa and is a virtuous act in Islam.

Purpose of Aqeeqa 

  •  God and His Messenger decreed the Aqeeqa for the newborn for several reasons: 
  1. To approach God Almighty.
  2. Praise the blessings He has given.

In the pre-Islamic period, this was known among the Arabs, and when Islam came, it transformed this custom into a ritual for approaching God.

Aqeeqa Rules

  • On the seventh day after birth, the child’s head is shaved.
  • The baby is given a taste of honey to reflect the sweetness of the Qur’an.
  • Once Aqeeqa has purified a newborn, he or she should stay faithful to Allah and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad.

Aqeeqa rules for baby boy

The rules for performing an Aqeeqa for baby boys are different from those for girls. For boys, the following rules apply:

  • – The Aqeeqa should be performed on the 7th day after birth. However, if this day falls on a Friday, then it should be done on the following Saturday instead.
  • It’s important for Muslims to have their baby’s hair cut before celebrating their Aqeeqa. The haircut symbolizes purification and readiness for prayer and other religious rituals.
  • 2 sacrifices are offered for each male child

Aqeeqa rules for baby Girl 

The rules of aqeeqa for a girl are the same as for a male, with the difference that only 1 sacrifice is sufficient.

Aisha (RA) reported Allah’s Messenger (saw) said’

‘Slaughter for a boy two compatible sheep and for a girl, just one. It does not matter whether the sheep are male or female’.

The Animal’s Condition for Aqeeqa

Animals must be of a certain age and eligibility. For lambs, this is a minimum of 6 months and for goats, 12 months. The animals should also be healthy with no defects like broken horns or teeth.
