Aqiqah is the ritual of slaughtering livestock (goats) slaughtered on the 7th day of the baby’s birth. If missed (perform it) on the 7th day of birth, then it should be slaughtered on the 14th day. If not, then it can be implemented on the 21st day or can be after every next 7 days. This is based on the opinion of Sheikh Muhammad Arsyad Al-Banjari in his book Sabil Al-Muhtadin.

The law of performing Aqiqah worship is SUNAT MU’AKKAD (which is highly required to do) based on a strong opinion in the As-Syafie law.

No. Aqiqah is not a tradition or customs of the Malays, even it is the Ibadah and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Prophet Muhammad PBUH also Aqiqah for His own grandson, Hassan and Husayn R.A.

Because Aqiqah is parent’s responsibility to fulfill for having the children.

Aqiqah is the responsibility of the guardian (parents) of the child. It can be grandfather, uncle, or guardian responsibility if the parents have passed away.

Yes. If the parent of the child cannot afford or unable to do it for certain reasons, then the other party can implement Aqiqah for the child, but it must be informed to the parents.

Yes, if we can afford it (already have our own income).

  • Expressing infinite gratitude in conjunction with the birth of a baby.
  • Spread the word about the birth of a child so that prejudice does not arise.
  • Grateful for the blessings of having child from our own flesh and blood.
  • Babies are born healthy and perfect.
  • Prevent babies from getting sick.
  • Avoid children from demonic interference.
  • Able to support the growth and intelligence of children’s minds.
  • Live the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH when celebrating the birth of a baby.
  • Avoid heretical practices such as “lenggang perut” and baby shower or practices that do not coincide with the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH.

 

IMPLEMENTATION OF AQIQAH IN THE MONTH OF RAMADAN

  • Double the reward for doing good.
  • The reward of feeding people for breaking the fast.

It is sunnah implementing Aqiqah with a goat.

  • Male – 2 goats
  • Female – 1 goat

Yes, not necessarily 2 goats at once. However, if you can afford it, the slaughter of the Aqiqah should be completed at another time.

Yes, even Prophet Muhammad PBUH implement Aqiqah for his two grandsons Hassan & Hussain R.A respectively.

Yes. The more Aqiqah animals are slaughtered, the greater the reward because more people receive the benefits.

There is no text forbidding to perform Aqiqah with the cows, but we in EZQ not implementing Aqiqah with the cow, only Aqiqah with goats only.

 

  • WHY DOES EZQ NOT MAKE AQIQAH WITH THE COW SECTION?

So far we do not provide Aqiqah slaughter services with cow by parts.

 

  • IF EZQ DOES NOT MAKE AQIQAH WITH THE COW SECTION, CAN IT BE PERFORMED WITH AQIQAH WITH A COW?

Can perform Aqiqah with a cow but only for 1 name only. (EZQ does not accept Aqiqah orders for a cow with more than 1 name).

Aqiqah meat is sunnah to be cooked. In contrast to the Qurban where the meat is distributed raw.

 

But at EZQ, not all the aqiqah meat is cooked, some are distributed raw to the locals so that more people receive the distribution of the meat.

Must perform Aqiqah for a baby who has died whether he died in the womb (after more than 4 months) or he died before he could live on the 7th day of birth, as a sign of gratitude given the opportunity to have children even if his life is not long.
