Muslim parents do not traditionally hold a “baby shower” prior to the child’s birth but nowadays it has become more popular. The Islamic alternative is a welcoming ceremony called the aqiqah  (Ah-KEE- ka), which is held after the child is born. Hosted by the baby’s family, the aqiqah includes traditional rituals and is an essential celebration for welcoming a new baby into a Muslim family.

The aqiqah is a way for parents to show gratefulness and thanks to Allah for the blessings of a healthy child. The aqiqah is traditionally held on the seventh day after the child’s birth, but it may also be postponed until later (often the 7th, 14th, or 21st day after birth). If one cannot afford the expense at the time of the child’s birth, it may even be postponed longer.
Muslim parents often host the aqiqah at their home or a community center. The aqiqah is an optional dinner event designed to celebrate the child’s birth and welcome him or her to the community. There is no religious consequence for not holding an aqiqah; it is a “sunnah” tradition but is not required.
The aqiqah is always hosted by the parents or extended family of the newborn child. In order to provide a community meal, the family slaughters one or two sheep or goats. Many guests bring gifts for the new baby and the parents, such as clothing, toys or baby furniture.
