CHILDBIRTH (“Wilaadah”)

The ushering of a new life into this world is indeed a miracle. Application of the prescribed Islamic observances at this precious occasion secures protection, blessings and inspiration for the newborn along the journey of life. The arrival of a newborn into this world is an occasion which brings great joy and delight to the parents, families and friends. The newborn breathes new life and inspiration into the hearts of the parents. Difficulties and tribulations are forgotten, and the parents’ focus and concern is now directed to their new baby. However, it is also imperative to bear in mind that coupled with this joy and delight, the arrival of a newborn is a tremendous responsibility upon the shoulders of the parents.

The Shariah has prescribed certain practices on this occasion, which are very beneficial, and if carried out correctly, will have positive effects on the child. All meaningless traditions, rituals and customs, which bear negative repercussions for the child, should be abandoned. Only those practices directed to us by the Shariah should be observed.
