AQIQAH & SADAQAH SACRIFICE

FULFIL A PROPHETIC TRADITION & FEED THOSE IN NEED

Sacrificing an animal is a prophetic tradition and a great way to express thanks to Allah (swt) for the blessing He has bestowed on us. With food insecurity levels rising globally and billions of people struggling every single day to put food on their table, your Sacrifice donations are needed more than ever.

At Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we carry out your Aqiqa & Sadaqah Sacrifice in impoverished communities, where many people will not have eaten meat the entire year. Your Sacrifice truly helps tackle hunger and provides people with nutritious, healthy meat, a rare luxury. We distribute either meat packages or cook hot meals with the meat, depending on the location and circumstances.


From £75 you can earn the rewards of fulfilling a Sunnah & feeding those in need

AQIQAH

Aqiqah is a prophetic tradition passed down from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw),

where a sheep or a goat is sacrificed upon the birth of a baby. It is a way to demonstrate gratitude for the birth of a beautiful baby and the unlimited blessings from Allah (swt) that have been bestowed upon the family.

Aqiqa is a form of sadaqah that helps protect your baby, and also brings you ample reward by feeding those in need. Welcome the arrival of your baby and give thanks to Allah (swt) by performing your Aqiqah.


With Al Mustafa Welfare Trust today from just £75 for a baby girl & £150 for a baby boy.

SADAQAH SACRIFICE

Some people choose to give sadaqah sacrifices as an act of thanks to Allah (swt) if they have been saved from harm.

such as when getting a new job; being saved during an accident or terrible illness. Many others offer a sadaqah sacrifice to help ward off illness or evil eye, seeking Allah’s protection.

As with Aqiqa, your sadaqah sacrifice is a means of reward and blessings for you, while also feeding those living in poverty, promoting good health, nutrition, and survival.

AQIQAH FAQS

What is Aqiqah?

Aqiqah is the act of sacrificing an animal to mark the occasion of a child’s birth. Ideally, this should be performed seven days after the birth of the child.

“Aqeeqah is the child’s rescue from Satan and protection for his efforts for the good of his life Hereafter.” (Faid al-Qadir)

Why should I perform Aqiqah for my newborn baby?

Performing Aqiqah following the birth of a child is highly recommended for the parent or guardian. This is beneficial, as it helps to unite loved ones and communities on this special occasion.

It also gives us an opportunity to share our celebrations with those less fortunate than ourselves – such as orphans and those in need – by offering the meat from the sacrifice with them.

Why do we shave the baby’s head?

It is the sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) to shave the baby’s head as a means of purification and the symbol of a new beginning for a Muslim child.

The hair is weighed, and Sadaqah is given to the poor in accordance to the weight of the hair.

The value of this is calculated by donating the amount equivalent to the same weight in silver to the poor. This works out to be approximately £10 at the moment.

What animals are slaughtered for Aqiqah?

Traditionally, a goat or sheep may be sacrificed for Aqiqah, and it can also be a cow or camel. The selection of animal is often dependent on the location. Just like the conditions of sacrifice for Qurbani, that animal must be in good health and be slaughtered in a humane way in line with Islamic guidance.
