- Adhan in the ears of the newborn

- Naming the child
Choosing a name for the newborn is an important decision and should be done in accordance with Islamic teachings. It is recommended to choose a name that has a good meaning and that is not associated with any negative connotations.
Aqiqah is a Sunnah practice where an animal is sacrificed on behalf of the newborn. This is usually done on the seventh day after the birth of the child.

Tahneek is a Sunnah practice where a piece of softened date is placed in the mouth of the newborn. This is done to provide the child with some nutrition and to also fulfill the Sunnah۔
