Giving Sadqa over Cutting baby hair for 1st time


My tradition is when we cut baby hair 1st time we make lunch and we put the baby hair under the young tree and we give sadaqa to poor people, does that have anything to do with religion?


This is not obligatory. It is mentioned in the Sunnah to shave the baby's head and weigh the hair and give out in charity its equivalent in silver. However, this practice is not prohibited provided it is not associated with invalid beliefs.
