The “head shaving” of a baby’s head is a tradition carried out by the Hindus the only difference is that Muslims weight the babys hair and the amount in silver is given to charity. This ritual usually occurs seven days after the baby’s birth. There is no Quranic evidence of this and how it is sought religious.
After seven days the baby’s head is shaved (a tradition also carried out by Hindus). This is to show that the child is the servant of Allah. Although Hindus may take the baby’s hair to India and scatter it in the holy river Ganges, Muslims weigh it and give the equivalent weight in silver
The “aqeeqah” is in fact tradition. Why the seventh day? Why specifically slaughtering of sheep/goat? The celebration of birth should be celebrated as a happy joyous occasion and not attributed to any kind of religious teaching. There is again NO evidence of this tradition in the Quran.
