As is well known that every year the company (eQurban Resources) would carry out their responsibility to implement Qurban and aqeeqah worship instead of building the human capital and economic development in society. This is why eQurban.com would like to share some knowledge about the law of aqeeqah which will be described in the following series.
Aqeeqah means animal slaughtered for newborn babies or known as Full (نسيكة) or Zabihah (ذبيحة). Aqeeqah also refers to the sacrifice that is offered on behalf of the newborn on the 7th day after birth.
Aqeeqah also a form of worship that is by doing a certain slaughtered of the livestock. It is also a sign of thankful to God (ﷲ) for the birth. The animals that slaughtered for this purpose are camels, cows, goats and sheep. Goats and sheep are good and better to do this ritual. According to Imam Shafi’I, this law is sunnah mu’akkadah (a confirmed Sunnah). This means common practiced that are implemented by the Prophet ﷴﷺ long life and although he never left. This responsibility are required to the parents which provides maintenance and living to the child.
It was narrated from Salman ibn ‘Amir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet ﷴ ﷺ said: “For a boy there should be ‘aqeeqah so shed blood for him and remove the dirt from him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5154
There are also several conditions for this aqeeqah. For a boy two sheep should be sacrificed, each of which should meet the same conditions as a sheep for Udhiah (sacrifice), and for a girl one sheep should be sacrificed. Cows and camels also can be one of the animals but for this cows and camels are allowed to share as much as 7 parts.
Time to do this aqeeqah is from the completion of the child’s birth until puberty. If aqeeqah is done before the birth it is considered as a normal slaughtered. It is edible but not categorized as an aqeeqah.
This slaughter can be done on 7th of the baby’s birth date. If it cannot be done on the 7th day, then it can also be done on 17th and 21st. But if it cannot be perform on this date, then this aqeeqah can be done at any time according to the parent’s ability.
If the child has reached puberty, it is no longer required aqeeqah on his father. So he was allowed to do this aqeeqah on itself or his father can also perform and settle what he has not finish before.
Like the words of the Prophet ﷴ ﷺ said: “Every child is in pledge for his ‘aqeeqah which should be sacrificed for him on the seventh day, and his head should be shaved and he should be given a name.” Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 4220; Abu Dawood, 2838; al-Tirmidhi, 1522; Ibn Maajah, 3165; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
