A long with Christianity and Judaism, Islam is one of three Abraham's religions. Therefore, many of the rituals from Islam will be very similar to the ones from Christianity and Judaism. Islam follows a very straightforward ritual for a child's birth. Four rituals that a Muslim performs when a new child is born: Adhan, Tasmiyah, Khitan and Aqeeqah.
Adhan is a prayer that is whispered into the baby's ears when they are born. The belief is that the words "God is great, there is no God but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. Come to prayer" should be the first words that is heard by the child. Another belief in this ritual is that the first taste of a child should be sweet, therefore; the baby is fed with a teaspoon of honey. This ritual was first carried out by Prophet Muhammed and the sweetness would continue.
Tasmiyah (naming ceremony)
This is the same naming ceremony as Christianity and Judaism. The naming ceremony of a Muslim is simply orders of Allah. The belief is that if the worshipers ask for a child, then the child will nourish with the words of Allah. The new born baby should also be given a good name and so should the whole family. Traditionally, the baby should be named on the seventh day but it is not a given. To take the name, the parents might take suggestions from their families, friends and the priest. The baby does not need to be named on the seventh day, it may be named before like different scriptures say but the maximum amount of days taken should be seven.
During the seven days of naming, another ceremony called Aqeeqah takes a big part. To thank Allah, the child is shaved and the hair is weighed. The family must give at least the same weight of gold to charity and at least two livestock should be sacrifised. After this ceremony, it is important to have a community meal and relatives, friends and neighbors and invited.
Circumcision is a ritual when a Muslim boy's penis is cut and the foreskin is removed. The main reason for this is to display purity and cleanness. When the foreskin of a child is still on the baby boy's penis, it is easy for urine to be trapped inside and adulterate the baby. Therefore, to avoid all risk the baby boy's foreskin is removed to make the child as clean as possible. This ritual happens anytime before puberty (preferably in the first seven days) but it is ideal that it happens before or else the damage and harm may altar the child's ways of thinking and make him more aggressive.
