Milestones in the Islamic Faith

Adhan a ceremony that is performed after a child
is born. The baby is washed and then the father,
or some elderly person, whispers the Call to
Prayer (the Adhan) in his or her right ear.
Iqamah In the left ear, the person whispers the
command to rise and worship
Muslims believe that a child is born free of sin.
Hey Baby, go and pray!!

Aqiqah The name giving ceremony
Muslims can choose between a family name, one of
Muhammads names, or one of the Ninety-nine
Beautiful Names that describe God. If they
choose one of these names, they must put the word
Abd in front of it because it means
servant. The hair of the child is cut and its
weight in Gold is distributed among the poor. A
goat is usually sacrificed, and one-third of the
meat is distributed to the poor. In most cases,
male circumcision takes place. However, in some
countries like Morocco, the procedure takes place
when the boy is three or four years old.

Polygamy
Polygamous marriages can provide women with the
opportunity to marry in societies where there are
more women than men. It is also intended to
provide an opportunity for widows to remarry.
These situations prevailed during the time of
Muhammad.
According to Islamic tradition, a Muslim man can
marry up to four wives. Permission for this is
given in the Quran
The vast majority of muslims maintain a
monogamous relationship

Divorce
Although the Islamic faith frowns upon divorce,
they also believe that it is not in the interests
of the Muslim community to force people to remain
married if they cannot grow together and form
productive families.

Death
Muslims believe that the burial should happen on
the day that the person dies. People throw
handfuls of dirt into the gravesite while
reciting chapters from the Quran. After the
burial, a short period of mourning is observed,
usually for three days.
