Dad and mom are expected to do a baby ritual called Aqiqah for my sister Kanza Nabila by slaughtering a goat as advised by the Prophet Muhammad.
It's still not clear when precisely the ritual will be held. Certainly, it's within this week, says dad.
Well, it reminded me of happening when dad and mom did aqiqah to me in my 38 days of age in which many young orphan boys recite shalawat, cut a piece of my hair in the mosque led by uncle Ali. That moment was unforgettable.
I miss that one.
This time around, the ritual will be held in the female mosque (musholla).
A breastfed baby for the first six months and a formula-fed baby months after.
