Qurbān & ʿAqīqah

All Activities


Sayyidatuna 'Āisha Narrates That Rasūlullāh ﷺ Said,

“There is no dearer deed of the son of Adam
in the days of Qurbani than flowing the
blood (doing Qurbani), and that animal will
come with his horns, hairs, and hooves on
the day of resurrection. The blood of the
Qurbani reaches the stage of acceptance
before it reaches the floor.”

(Tirmidhi, Ibnu Majah)


Our Achievement

In 2019 we carried out qurban and aqiqah for the poor and needy Muslim in Philippines, in total we slaughtered 130 middle sized range goats.

In 2020 we slaughtered 42 cows in Philippines and 19 goats and sheep in Yemen.

We also encouraged our donors to give an optional donation of SGD 40 for food packs.

Q&A on Qurbān & 'Aqìqah

In Madhhab Shāfi'ì

’Aqiqah is the ritual of sacrificing one or two portions of specific animals to celebrate the occasion of a child’s birth.

Qurbān is the ritual sacrifice of specific animals on ʿEid al-Aḍḥā and the days of Tashrīq. Which falls on the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of Dhu ‘l-hijjah of the Lunar Hijri Calendar.

You can start doing it as soon as you have finished your ʿEid al-Aḍḥā prayers.

Sacrifices of Qurbān or ʿAqīqah can be done on three different animals #1 Camels #2 Cow or buffalo #3 Sheep or goat.

1 goat or sheep is equal to 1 portion of sacrifice. 1 cow, buffalo or camel is equal to 7 portions of sacrifice.

Yes, you may do ʿAqīqah on a cow. A cow is sufficient for seven portions.

For every single portion of the Qurbān, it is compulsory for you to donate at least one portion that is able to feed a poor man for at least one full meal which consists entirely of that meat. However, the best is to donate 1/3 of the meat to the poor and needy, take another 1/3 for yourself and your family, and distribute another 1/3 to your neighbours, relatives and friends.

It is not compulsory in Madhhab Shāfiʿī for you to do the Qurbān or ʿAqīqah. However, it is highly encouraged for everyone to do the Qurbān and ʿAqīqah at least once in his lifetime. It is also sunnah kifāyah to have at least one of the family in one house to carry out the Qurbān. So be sure to have at least 1 person to do the Qurbān in one house every year.

Yes, there is a difference. Two portions for a male and one portion for a female.

Yes, it is allowed for you to do your Qurbān overseas.

Yes, you may do the Qurbān on behalf of the deceased like the Prophet Muḥammad ‎ﷺ , your teachers, your parents or anyone whom you love. However, you must know that when you do a Qurbān on behalf of a deceased, then it is compulsory for you to donate the entire sacrifice to the poor and needy. you are not allowed to take any portion of the meat for yourself.

Yes, you are allowed to combine intentions for Qurbān and ʿAqīqah in one cow. For example, you have three portions of Qurbān, and you have four portion ʿAqīqah and you will slaughter one cow for all those Seven portions. So, you will intend as such when you are doing the slaughtering.

No, you do one intention for one portion of sacrifice.

Yes, you can share. Because we Muslims are no stranger to another Muslim.

Yes, you can share the expenses of a goat or a sheep, and both will receive the rewards. But it (the sacrifice) will only be sufficient for one person.

You may do your Qurbān in a period of four days starting from the 10th of Dhu ‘l-hijjah, then followed by the 11th the 12th and the 13th. However, you should be aware that you should do your sacrifices and complete the slaughtering before the sunset of the 13th Dhu ‘l-hijjah, which means before the Eve of 14th Dhu ‘l-hijjah.

ʿAqīqah sacrifices can be done at any time throughout the whole year. It is best to do it on the 7th day of the birth of the child. If the ʿAqīqah has not been done for the child when he or she was an infant, then you may still do so even if he or she is already an adult. It can be done by the parents, guardians, friends or even by yourself.
