Last month, i’ve been given opportunity by one of my colleague to shoot his nephew’s aqiqah event. The whole event is great, accompanied by scholar from Yayasan al-Jenderami.
im very pleased to be given such opportunity. thanks mariam! 🙂 the following definition quoted from aqiqahkorban.com
Aqiqah literally means cut and this word is often used for the hair of a new born baby that is cut or shaved.
Aqiqah is defined as the animal that is slaughtered on the occasion when the hair of a new born is shaved.
The animal is called aqiqah and it is also encouraged for the animal to be called nasikah or zhabihah.
TYPES OF ANIMALS TO BE SLAUGHTERED
There are practices by Prophet Muhammad ( peace be upon him ) where he slaughtered a goat for a boy, and a goat for a girl.
It was narrated in Sunan Tirmizhi where the Prophet made aqiqah for Al Hassan (his grandson) by slaughtering a goat.
The most recommended for the parent or the guardian of the child is to slaughter 2 goats on the occasion of a boy and 1 goat for the birth of a girl.
