Last week we had Majlis Aqiqah for my dear Amar. Aqiqah is an occasion where an animal (usually a sheep for baby girl and two sheep for baby boy) that is slaughtered on the occasion when the hair of a new born is shaved. The performance of aqiqah is sunnah muakkkadah (highly encouraged). It is to be performed by the parents or the guardians of the child, the best would be on the seventh day after the birth of the baby. But, because I was on confinement during the seventh day, we decided to hold it until both my baby and I are well. All family members helped out a day before the occasion, including my dear Amir.
