I was thinking the same *lol*But it´s always a good thing to have a few trees in your garden when you live in Dubai,they bring shadow when the heat is unbearable & Sheikh Mohammed can always count the trees if he loses track of the number of children he has....

In short

Aqeeqah involves sacrificing a goat or lamb on behalf of the child on the seventh day after birth. It is giving thanks to Allah for the gift of a child. The meat is distributed to the poor, or it can be used to arrange a feast to which the poor as well as relatives and friends are invited.

Also the head of the baby is shaved and circumcision for boys.
