Dear Amir,

If you study the book of Leviticus in the Bible, you will find it loaded with blood sacrifice including a custom similar to Aqeeqah. The Jewish residents of Arabia started this ritual sacrifice on a black stone called Aqeeq four centuries before the exalted prophet (170 BC). Then it became popular among the Arabs of Najd and Hijaz.

Thanks for the query.
