Aqiqah

Aqiqah, is defined as the animal that is slaughtered on the occasion of child birth.

It literally means ‘cut’ and is often used to refer to the hair of the newborn baby that is cut or shaved.

The act of Aqiqah is highly encouraged. It is to be performed by the parents or the guardians of the child. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions used to perform Aqiqah when they were bestowed with a newborn.

The best time to perform Aqiqah is on the seventh day after the birth of the newly born baby.

Why Perform Aqiqah?

  • To announce the birth of the baby to friends and relatives to inform them of the new member of the family. This is to prevent any gossips and/or misunderstandings that could arise from that birth and to confirm the newborn’s rights to the family’s wealth and name
  • To show one’s gratitude to the Almighty creator, Allah SWT for his great blessings
  • To celebrate the blessed occasion among family members, neighbors and friends. The poor should also be included in the celebration by offering them food and meat served on this occasion.

Korban

Korban means to ‘get close’ in Arabic. This is an act of slaughtering an animal a Muslim performs at a certain period so as to allow him to be able to get closer to Almighty God. The animals allowed to be slaughtered are goats, cows and camels. They are slaughtered on the day of Eidul Adha and also on the three days of Tasyrik which falls on the 11th, 12th and 13th of Zhulhijjah.

Benefits of Korban
  • Sacrificing an animal (Korban) is an act of worship. A Muslim performs it voluntarily with the intention of getting closer to Allah SWT
  • To remember Prophet Abraham’s (pbuh) willingness to slaughter his beloved son, Ishmael as a sacrifice when commanded by God. The sacrifice was later replaced to a goat when Abraham and Ishmael succeeded in conforming to the commandments of Allah SWT
  • Doing charity to the poor and needy by contributing and distributing the meat to them “So pray to your lord and sacrifice (to him alone)” Qur’an 108:2 Al-Kawthar
