Aqiqa: the prophetic way to bless your new baby
Honour Allah’s blessings by performing an Aqiqa for your baby girl this Ramadan. 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)
£80 - 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 to fight hunger and malnutrition. Each animal sacrificed will provide 7 or 8 families with 2 kilograms each. Currently, we perform Aqiqas in every country in which we work.
Keeping you in the loop
We’ll carry out your Aqiqa wherever it’s most needed. Once it has been performed and the meat distributed, we’ll send you a report to let you know when and where the sacrifice was completed, and how many people it supported.
This Ramadan, welcome your new baby girl into the world by following the example of the Messenger (PBUH). Donate your Aqiqa in the month of mercy.
