A son was born to me and I took him to the Prophet who
named him Ibrahim, did Tahnik for him with a date, invoked
Allah to bless him and returned him to me. (The narrator
added: That was Abu Musa's eldest son.)
I conceived 'Abdullah bin AzZubair at Mecca and went
out (of Mecca) while I was about to give birth. I came to
Medina and encamped at Quba', and gave birth at Quba'.
Then I brought the child to Allah's Apostle and placed it
(on his lap). He asked for a date, chewed it, and put his
saliva in the mouth of the child. So the first thing to
enter its stomach was the saliva of Allah's Apostle. Then
he did its Tahnik with a date, and invoked Allah to bless
him. It was the first child born in the Islamic era,
therefore they (Muslims) were very happy with its birth,
for it had been said to them that the Jews had bewitched
them, and so they would not produce any offspring.
Abu Talha had a child who was sick. Once, while Abu
Talha was out, the child died. When Abu Talha returned
home, he asked, "How does my son fare?" Um Salaim (his
wife) replied, "He is quieter than he has ever been." Then
she brought supper for him and he took his supper and
slept with her. When he had finished, she said (to him),
"Bury the child (as he's dead)." Next morning Abu Talha
came to Allah's Apostle and told him about that. The
Prophet said (to him), "Did you sleep with your wife last
night?" Abu Talha said, "Yes". The Prophet said, "O Allah!
Bestow your blessing on them as regards that night of
theirs." Um Sulaim gave birth to a boy. Abu Talha told me
to take care of the child till it was taken to the
Prophet. Then Abu Talha took the child to the Prophet and
Um Sulaim sent some dates along with the child. The
Prophet took the child (on his lap) and asked if there was
something with him. The people replied, "Yes, a few
dates." The Prophet took a date, chewed it, took some of
it out of his mouth, put it into the child's mouth and did
Tahnik for him with that, and named him 'Abdullah.
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "'Aqiqa is to be
offered for a (newly born) boy, so slaughter (an animal)
for him, and relieve him of his suffering." (Note: It has
been quoted in Fateh-AL-Bari that the majority of the
Religious Scholars agrees to the Hadith narrated in Sahih
At-TlRMlZY that the Prophet was asked about Aqiqa and he
ordered 2 sheep for a boy and one sheep for a girl and
that is his tradition "SUNNA".)
The Prophet said, "Neither Fara' nor 'Atira (is
permissible):" Al-Fara' nor 'Atira (is permissible):" Al-Fara'
was the first offspring (of camels or sheep) which the
pagans used to offer (as a sacrifice) to their idols. And
Al-'Atira was (a sheep which was to be slaughtered) during
the month of Rajab.
The Prophet said, "Neither Fara' nor 'Atira) is
permissible)." Al-Fara' was the first offspring (they got
of camels or sheep) which they (pagans) used to offer (as
a sacrifice) to their idols. 'Atira was (a sheep which
used to be slaughtered) during the month of Rajab.
