Aqiqah and removing baby’s hair in Islam

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
I was blessed with baby girl Alhamdulillah, by operation. I had perform aqiqah on 7th day from baby birth, 1 sheep but did not remove all hairs, some hairs cut at that time. Now I want to remove all hairs, is it good in Islam to remove hairs by trimmer. Can remove it by trimmer or else by blade itself. Please reply.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1143/939/D=11/1438)


You should have cut all the hair of head that day. However, now cut all the hair of head and give silver in sadaqah equal to its weight, it is mustahab and bury the hair. If you cannot give silver in charity then too do not delay in shaving the hair. You can shave the hair by razor, blade or trimmer which could clean the whole head provided the child does not feel any pain.

Allah knows Best!
