Al-Albānī: What Should Be Said When Slaughtering an ‘Aqīqah?
Shaykh Muḥammad Nāṣir al-Dīn al-Albānī
Categorized under: Slaughtering and Sacrifice
Questioner: […]First, have [any] specific words to say been legislated [in Islām] for the time of slaughtering the ‘aqīqah, like “Allāhumma hādhā ‘an fulān ibn fulān” [O Allāh, this is on behalf of so-and-so, the son of so-and-so]?
Shaikh Al-Albānī: No, [that] hasn’t been legislated [and considered desirable in Islām].
Questioner: What is to be said?
Shaikh Al-Albānī: Nothing–other than what is to be said at every slaughter: “Bismillāh wallāhu akbar” [In the name of Allāh, and Allāh is greater than everything].
