Aquiqah

Aquiqah

Aquiqah, in Islamic terminology, is defined as sacrifice of an animal on the occasion of a child's birth. The performance of Aquiqah is highly encouraged. It is to be performed by the parents or the guardians of the child. The Aquiqah requires one goat for a baby girl and two goats for a baby boy and it has to be slaughtered in the seventh day if not possible, then in the fourteenth, if not, in the twenty fourth, if not, and then at any time. The Aquiqah is a must. If you don't do this for your child, your child will not intercede for his parents on the day of resurrection. If you parents did not perform Aquiqah for you because of various reasons then you can make the Aquiqah yourself at any time. You can distribute the meat to the poor or you can arrange a feast.

Please donate the cost of your Aquiqah $150 per goat/sheep

  • For a boy Aquiqah two Goats or two Sheeps = 2 x $150 = $300
  • For a girl Aquiqah one Goat or 1 Sheep = 1 x $150 = $150
  • To provide feast add extra cost to the animal cost
