3. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from ‘Asem al- Kuziy who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, narrating from his father that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, offered ‘Aqiqah for al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam. It was a ram and one ram for al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al- Salam. He (the Messenger of Allah) gave something to al-Qabilah (the special nurse), shaved their heads on the seventh day, weighed their hairs and equal to its weight gave in charity.’ He (the narrator) has said, ‘I asked him (the Imam), ‘Is blood taken to stain the head of the child?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘That is shirk (considering things partners of Allah), a practice of pagans.’ I then said, ‘Allah is free of all defects. Is it shirk?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘If it is not shirk it certainly was a practice in the time of ignorance and Islam has prohibited it.’”

6. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from af-Husayn ibn Khafid who has said the following: “I once asked al-Rida’, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about when to offer congratulations for the birth of a child. He (the Imam) stated this Hadith. Tt was the birth of al-Hassan ibn Ali, ‘Alayhi al-Salam. Jibril descended to congratulate the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, on the seventh day and instructed to name him and give him a Kunyah, shave his head, offer ‘Aqiqah for him and pierce a hole in his ear. When al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was born Jibril came on the seventh day and instructed similarly.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘They both had two bunches of hairs on the left middle side of their head and the hole was in their right ear on the loop and on the left one it was on the top of the ear. Earring was in the right ear and al-Shanf (earring) on the left ear.’ It is narrated that the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, left two bunches of hairs on the middle of their head and it is more correct than al-Qarn (the left middle of the head).”’
