Humanity-Increased Aqiqah Program: Continuing the Sunnah

At Humanity-Increased, we are inspired by the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who performed Aqiqah for his beloved grandsons, Imam al-Hasan and Imam al-Husain (peace be upon them). Aqiqah, the practice of sacrificing livestock upon the birth of a child, serves as a gesture of thanks and a means to share joy and blessings with others, especially those in need.

A Tradition of Gratitude and Giving

Following the beautiful tradition of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), our Aqiqah program allows families to celebrate the arrival of their children by giving back. Aqiqah is more than a ritual; it’s an act of faith and compassion, signifying the parents’ gratitude to Allah (SWT) for the precious gift of life and their commitment to the well-being of the community.

Your Aqiqah Donation: A Ripple of Kindness

When you choose to perform your Aqiqah with Humanity-Increased, you’re not only adhering to a cherished Sunnah but also extending your blessings to many who are less fortunate. The practice involves:

The sacrifice of two sheep ($200 per sheep), as the Prophet (peace be upon him) did for his grandsons, symbolizing generosity and abundance.


The sacrifice of one sheep ($200), reflecting the Sunnah’s guidance on celebrating new life with acts of kindness.

Aqiqah Q&A

What is an Aqiqah?

An aqiqah is the Islamic tradition of the sacrifice of an animal on the occasion of a child’s birth.

Who has to give the Aqiqah?

The Aqiqah is a sunnah and not an obligation. However, it is highly encouraged that the Aqiqah be carried out by the parents of a newborn child on the seventh day after their birth.

When does the Aqiqah have to be carried out?

It is narrated that the Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘The boy is in pledge for his aqiqah which should be sacrificed on his behalf on the seventh day, and he should be named and his head shaved.’ (Tirmidhi: 1522). Because of this hadith, the scholars of Islam stated that it is best to carry out the Aqiqah on the seventh day. However, if that is not possible, then carrying it out on the 14th or 21st is prefered to other days.

What about the shaving of the baby's hair?

It is a sunnah to shave the baby’s hair and give its weight equivalent in Silver as sadaqah (charity).

How much is the Aqiqah?

The sunnah is to sacrifice two goats for a boy and one goat for a girl. The current price of a goat is $200 but is subject to change based on market rates. When that occurs, we will update our prices and inform you.
