Aqiqah is the sacrifice slaughtered for the newborn child – whether a male or female. It is an established Sunnah that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and all the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) have done. Al-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, al-Nasa’i and Ibn Majah have reported through Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) that the Prophet (s) offered `Aqiqah for al-Hassan and al-Husayn (his grandsons) by slaughtering a sheep for every one of them”. Slaughtering must be on the seventh, fourteenth or the twenty-first day after birth.
