Salam and Peace!

Aqeekah is not a Commandment of Allah. It is not in Al-Quran.
So, doing it with a faith that it is commanded in Allah's Deen, by Allah or by the Prophet,-----such a faith (which is found in man-made books of ahadith) is Shirk.

People who take it as a cultural practice, then it is not a good practice. Since one only shows off his wealth or status.

If someone have this extra money, the best use is to give it out in the way of Allah,------to poor, needy and hungry people.

wow you're so bias.

no one is saying it is a "commandment"

aqeeqa is given to the poor and family, giving to your family is fine! so no it's not about "showing off wealth or status"

Anything not forbidden by Allah is fine.

peace.
We all have blind spots.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
ambiguity is there for a reason, why do you think?
We're all different, so how can we all be equal?

I am not bias.
Since it is said that it is in Islam, so I am supposed to go for my Allah's Book of Islam.
I don't find such thing there.
It is cultural. How it became Deen and obligaroty?

If someone does it, I am not to judge his action.
I am only responsible for myself. And after that I can only clarify to people that it is not in Al-Quran (Islam).

salam.

In Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, as such, it is considered to be Deen, and it is said that you must do it.

Salam,

I'm originally from an arabic country.I know what you are speaking about.It's a tradition and not in the Quran so you can leave it.

No other God beside God.

Peace.

Salaam

I also had a boy recently, my wife (sunni) told me it is only a tradition. Since it is practically impossible to follow this tradition in our country we sent money to her parents and they had a party in honour of our son.

Peace

You are free to do what you think is right.

If any body forces you to take part in a cultural or religious tradition you tell then that they do not really understand what their real obligations should be. To mind their own business.


I find that People who treat these customs as obligations do not really understand what their real obligation should be.

it has nothing to do with QURAAN, but if u have money there is no harm to distribute meat and food items to poor, needy and your family members including your neighbors.
Common sense is biggest religion
