Aqeeqah is highly recommended (sunnah Mu’akadah) and refers to the animal that is sacrificed on the occasion of a child’s birth.
The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said:
“Aqeeqah is to be offered for a (newly born) boy, so slaughter (an animal) for him, and remove all dirt from him.”
Narrated by Al-Bukhari
The sunnah is to slaughter the sheep on the seventh day. If there is a delay, it may be slaughtered at any time. However, it is best to hasten to get it done.
