Aqeeqa is the Islamic tradition of sacrificing an animal on the occasion of a child’s birth. It is a type of sadaqah and Sunnah of our beloved Holy Prophet (PBUH).

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

“Every child is in pledge for his Aqeeqah, so slaughter (the animal) for him on the seventh day, shave his head, and name him.”

Aqeeqa is usually performed on the seventh day after a child’s birth, but it can also be done later. The meat of the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts and distributed among family, relatives, and members of the community in need. For a boy, two sheeps/goats are sacrificed, and for a girl, one sheep/goat.

KGNWT operates an Aqeeqa Program, allowing you to donate Aqeeqa meat directly to those most in need. Due to increasing inflation, meat is out of reach for many poor people across the country. We ensure that fresh meat packs reach vulnerable members of the community so they can enjoy a good meal with their families.
