Aqiqah or aqeeqah is a confirmed sunnah or Islamic tradition. It is the sacrifice of an animal on the occasion of a new born muslim child. The parent or guardian is required to sacrifice the animal on behalf of the newborn on the 7th, 14th or 21st day after the child's birth.
The Prophet(as) said "Every child is in pledge of his Aqiqah, so slaughter (the animal) for him, on the seventh day, shave his head and name him..." Ibn Majah 30:3165.
