Did you do these five things for your newborn child?

Having a child is a very joyous event. Make sure you do the optional good deeds ( سنن) related to the newborn to give your child a head start!
What to do when a child is born?
1. Make adhan in his right ear.
2. Make iqamah in his left ear.
3. Make tahnik (تحنيك) : rub his gums with something sweet like with a chewed date.
4. Give him/her a beautiful name on the seventh day.
3. Shave his/her hair on the seventh day and weigh it. Give in charity the weight of the hair in gold or silver.
5.Make a aqiqah ( عقيقة), a feast prepared from the meat of slaughtered sheep, on the seventh day.

Follow our future posts to learn more details about each one of these matters.
The End has Begun!

Don't know about today... But as of last year, No, They did not make you cut your hair. I saw some with pretty long hair at visits.

Who is they? In any case the post is saying that it is a rewardable good deed (sunnah act). This is the case whether the child is a male or female.
