Aqiqa of Inaya Adeel Ansari



In a Muslim home, on the seventh day after the birth of a child an Aqīqa is performed. Family, friends and other Muslims should be invited and the birth is celebrated as a gift from Allah.

An ‘Aqīqa consists of giving a name to the baby, shaving its hair, and offering a sacrifice (of goat). The sacrificed meat is shared amongst the poor and needy, family and friends and a bit is kept for oneself (if one wants).

These are some pictures from the head shaving of our daughter Inaya. The function took place as a family affair later on.

Hope my daughter sees a long, healthy and pious life. Ameen.
