Congratulations! Donate Your Aqiqah - Ethical & Transparent Charity
On the birth of a child, the Aqiqah is performed as part of the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed (SAW). It involves the sacrifice of livestock with the meat distributed amongst the poor and needy.
Fulfilling the Sunnah With Excellence
At Al Miftah, the highest standards are upheld when selecting the sacrificial livestock. We support the local economy and strongly believe in only offering the absolute best quality livestock. “None of you truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” [Bukhari].
Through Aqiqah, we help you follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (PBUH), bring the child closer to Allah SWT at the start of their life and share blessings with the less fortunate.
"Slaughter two comparable sheep for a male newborn and one sheep for a female." [Tirmidhi]
An Aqiqah for a baby boy involves the sacrifice of 2 animals (such as goat or sheep) and the Aqiqah for a baby girl involves the sacrifice of 1 animal, as per the Sunnah. It is also recommended that a newborns head is shaved, and Sadaqah is given to the value of the weight of the hair in silver (£10 will easily cover the required value, at the current market rate of silver. This is also included with your donation at Al Miftah).
