Birth of a child is a joyous occasion for every family. Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is to offer an aqeeqah or sacrifice for the newborn. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions used to perform aqeeqah when blessed with a child. Aqeeqah, in Islamic terminology and is defined as a sacrifice of an animal on the occasion of a child’s birth. This is to be performed by the parents or guardians of the child. One Nation is now offering an aqeeqah service, where the meat is cooked and served with rice and distributed to the poor and needy.
