It is Sunnah to shave the head of the newborn on the seventh day after birth, give them an Islamic name and also sacrifice an animal. The shaved hair of the baby is weighed and the equivalent weight in silver or gold is given to charity (this can easily be done by visiting a goldsmith). It is Sunnah to sacrifice a goat/sheep for a girl and two animals for a boy. The meat should be distributed between family, friends, and those who are in need. This whole process is called Aqiqah. Mother of the Mu’meens, Sayyida Aisha (RA) narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said: “Slaughter two comparable sheep for a male newborn and one sheep for a female.” [Tirmidhi]

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was once asked by his Companions: “O Prophet of Allah! What is this Qurbani?” He replied, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (as).”(Hadith – Ibn Majah)
