Qurbani / Aqeeqah


AQEEQAH

The birth of a child is a joyous occasion for every family. It is a sunnah of the Messenger of Allah 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.

When placing your order, if you prefer the aqeeqah to be done on any preferred date, please mention it in the notes section.

The animal for aqeeqah must meet all the conditions of a qurbani animal. We will ensure at the time of selecting your animal, all conditions are met.
