Storyboard Text

  • That's perfect Muhammad! I'm so happy for you and Aleena!
  • After Aleena had given birth to a little boy 7 days ago, the family has to decide the name for the little boy, as it was time to perform the Aqiqah ceremony. After looking at the Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names, they found an amazing name for the little boy, as that would be Ali.
  • So, what name should we give him? I was thinking the name Ali, as it's from the list of 99 names and it's the Prophet Muhammad's son-in-law.
  • Hey Muhammad, it's time for the prayer to announce the child to Allah.
  • After deciding the name for Ali, Muhammad must say a verse from the Qur’an that announces the child's name to God, before they leave the hospital. Once that was done, they went home as they have a lot of work for this ceremony.
  • You're right father. Let's do the prayer before we leave the hospital. I have to say a prayer from the Qur’an for Ali. Let's begin, in the name of God and through God, this is the Aqiqah of Ali, son of Muhammad...
  • As the little child first enters his home, Muhammad and Aleena give a haircut to their newborn as Ali's aunt, grandfather, and uncle watched. This symbolizes the ritual of purifying the child. But, little Ali was too scared of a pair of scissors.
  • No need to cry Ali, it's just a haircut.
  • Don't worry Ali, it's just a haircut to say thank you to Allah.
  • Hello Aryan! I was wondering if you could sacrifice two goats for the birth of a baby boy? I'm finally a grandfather!
  • After Ali's haircut, Aasim drove to the butcher shop as he needed to sacrifice two goats, so that they could give out the goat meat. Aryan has to say a verse from the Qur'an when sacrificing the goats for the ceremony , and to bless the meat by first saying bismillah.
  • Congratulations Aasim! I will make sure to say the Qur'an verse for the meat, and to have the meat in your hands. You don't have to pay for the meat today, it's on the house!
  • Wow, the hair is quite heavy! How's the goat meat Sarah?
  • As the ceremony continues, Sarah now has to pack the meat so it can be given out to the family and the poor. It represents the sacrifice of the Prophet Ibrahim’s son. Muhammad is weighing Ali's hair, as they need to decide how much money they need to give to charity. They are almost done with the ceremony.
  • I'm almost done packaging the meat Muhammad. I still need to prepare the meat for the poor and for Fatima's family.
  • Wow! Thank you so much Muhammad for your donation!
  • Muslim Homeless Shelter
  • Hey Rashid, here's some goat meat that Allah wanted to give you, as my nephew was born.
  • Hello Hasfa! Seven days ago, I become a dad and I wanted to give you a gift that Allah wanted to give you. It's a donation for your shelter.
  • As the family has packaged the meat and has the right amount of money based on the weight of Ali's hair, they went to the Muslim Homeless Shelter to donate money for the Shelter and to give the meat to people who are in need. Finally, Ali was welcomed to his Muslim family!
  • Thank you so much Umar! I haven't ate for the past week.
