The birth of a child is a joyous occasion for every family. It is a sunnah of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ that when a baby is born the parents should perform aqeeqah for the child by slaughtering two goats or sheep for a boy and one sheep or goat for a girl.

It is mustahab is to perform the sacrifice on the seventh day after the child is born although there is no harm in performing it earlier or later.


‘The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did the aqeeqah for al-Hasan and al-Husayn on the seventh day, and gave them names.’

Small Animal in Most Needy

Currently, Ummah Welfare Trust offers the aqeeqah service for ‘Most Needy‘, for which a small animal can be slaughtered for £80. This aqeeqah will be done in Pakistan only, and its meat distributed to poor Muslims.

If you wish for your Aqeeqah to be carried out on a specific day a minimum of 3 working days notice is required. (You will be able to enter your desired date in the Notes section field).
Alternatively, you can contact the Customer Service department by calling 01204 661 030.
