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.
Currently Ummah Welfare Trust offers the aqeeqah service in India.
Note: If you wish for your Aqeeqah to be carried out on a specific day, please inquire with the Customer Services team on 01204 661 030.
Ummul Mu’mineen, A’isha RadhyAllahu ‘anhu said:
‘The Messenger of Allah ﷺ did the aqeeqah for al-Hasan and al-Husayn on the seventh day, and gave them names.’
