What is the Ruling On Performing the Adhaan and Iqaamah in the newborn’s ears?–Shaikh Rabee


Answer:

By Allaah, it is weak (i.e. a weak hadeeth). The hadeeth about it is weak, and as long as it is weak we cannot say that it is something either recommended or obligatory, because of the fact that something being recommended is an Islamic ruling and an obligation is even a much greater (Islamic Ruling).

Yes, the Aqeeqah, giving a name (to the child), rubbing a date on the newborn’s palate, all of this is authentic in the Sunnah. As for the Adhaan, it is not established.  It was reported in a weak Hadeeth.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
