The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said:
“Aqeeqah is to be offered for a (newly born) boy, so slaughter (an animal) for him, and remove all dirt from him.”
Narrated by Al-Bukhari
When a baby is born it is an Islamic tradition to sacrifice an animal on behalf of the newborn on the seventh day after birth. A minimum of one sheep is slaughtered for a girl and two for a boy. It is Sunnah to slaughter the sheep on the seventh day, however, if there is a delay the Aqeeqah can be made at any time (its best to do it as soon as possible though).
When you order your Aqeeqah with Al-Ihsan Foundation your sacrifice will be sent to countries experiencing poverty. The sacrifice is made and distributed to poor and needy families in those countries.
Order your sacrifice today and help feed desperate families around the world.
