Q: I was told that to shave the hair of a newborn baby boy is in the sunnah but not for a newborn baby girl. Is this true?
A: This is not correct. It is sunnah to shave the hair of the newborn baby boy or girl on the seventh day. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/8302
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
