Aqiqa: the prophetic way to bless your new baby

If you’ve welcomed a new baby recently, then now’s the time to honour Allah’s blessings by performing an Aqiqa for your baby boy or girl. It’s a beautiful sacrifice that continues Ibrahim (AS) and Muhammad’s (PBUH) legacies. The Messenger offered aqiqas for his grandsons, Hassan and Hussein, and it’s a sunnah all Muslims are encouraged to continue. Give your Aqiqa in the blessed month of Ramadan and help families to eat well at iftar.

Aisha (RA) narrated, "Slaughter two comparable sheep for a male newborn and one sheep for a female." (Ahmad and al-Tirmidhi)

£135 - Provide 2 Aqiqas for the birth of your baby boy

£70 - Provide 1 Aqiqa for the birth of your baby girl

Give your Aqiqa with Human Appeal

We’ve been performing Aqiqas for 30 years, helping you to honour and bless your new baby, while helping the poorest communities to eat well.

Our local teams select only the healthiest, well cared for animals and slaughter under the strictest Islamic guidelines, ensuring that your Aqiqa fulfils all the requirements of this beautiful sacrifice.

When you donate your Aqiqa with us, our local teams will aim to perform your sacrifice within 2 to 3 weeks.

They’ll then immediately distribute fresh nutritious meat to the most vulnerable families, helping them to eat well at iftar. Each animal sacrificed will provide 7 or 8 families with 2 kilograms each. Currently, we perform Aqiqas in every country in which we work. We’ll carry out your Aqiqa wherever it’s most needed.

We’ll keep you updated on your sacrifice

Once your Aqiqa has been performed, we’ll send you a report to let you know when and where the sacrifice was completed, and how many people it supported.

Donate your Aqiqa today, bring your new baby into the world with this beautiful prophetic sunnah.
