The wife of the Prophet, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her), is reported to have said: 'The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did the aqeeqa for al-Hasan and al-Husain on the seventh day, and gave them names.'

It is a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) that when a baby is born the parents should perform aqeeqa for the child by slaughtering two goats or sheep for a boy and one sheep or goat for a girl.
