The ruling on the Aqeeqah of the Newborn Child


Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen

 
Question: What is the meaning of 'Aqeeqah of the newborn child', and is it Fardh (obligatory) or Sunnah (supererogatory)?

Answer: The Aqeeqah of the newborn child is the sacrificial animal that is slaughtered in seeking nearness to Allaah & thanking Him for the blessing of the newborn child on the 7th day after birth. The people of knowledge have differed over whether it is Sunnah or Fardh. Most of the people of knowledge hold the view that it is Sunnat Muâkkadah (compulsory). Even Imaam Ahmad said, he borrows & performs the Aqeeqah sacrifice. Meaning that the person who does not have any money should borrow the money & perform the Aqeeqah, & Allaah will take care of his debt for him because he revived a Sunnah.
