Your charity gives hope

To offer an aqiqah or sacrifice for a newborn child is the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).

An aqiqah involves the sacrifice of one goat for a girl, with the meat being distributed to disadvantaged communities.

It can be offered at any point after a child's birth, but it is recommended to perform it within the first week.

Celebrate the birth of your newborn and share the joy with those in need through the Muslim Hands Aqiqah service.

Our Aqiqa Packs include the sacrifice of the animal as well as a recommended book on parenting in Islam and Sadaqah to cover the weight of a child’s hair (£10 at current silver prices).

Once your aqiqah has been completed you will receive a feedback photo of the aqiqah being carried out.

If you have any specific instructions for your aqiqah please contact our donor care team on 0115 911 7222 first.
