The power to please Allah.
Revive the Sunnah today.

The Sunnah is a wide and comprehensive catalogue of actions, behaviours, and deeds of the beloved Prophet Mohammad, sallallahu 'alayhi wa’sallam, carried out in his lifetime, and delivered to Muslims for the betterment of the Ummah. The Sunnah covers everyday actions and situations, and includes

  • Offering a sacrifice on the birth of your child - Aqeeqah
  • Charity for the new-born - Sadaqah
  • A permanent dedication of wealth to Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala - Waqf
  • Offering a wedding celebration feast to the poor - Walima
  • Offering a sacrifice for the Ummah or the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa’sallam - Prophetic Qurbani
  • Feeding someone you don’t know – Sadaqah
  • Giving a gift and making a child smile – Sadaqah
The birth of a child is a joyous occasion for every family, a great gift from Allah subhanahu wa ta'āla, that we celebrate with our loved ones.
Aqeeqah is one of the ways to thank our Creator for blessing us with a new life, and in keeping with the Sunnah of the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa’sallam, when the child is born the parents should perform Aqeeqah for the child by slaughtering one small animal, a sheep or a goat, for a girl and two for a boy.
To offer an Aqeeqah or animal sacrifice for a new-born child is the desirable Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu 'alayhi wa’sallam, as he and his Companions, radhi Allahu'anhu, used to perform an Aqeeqah when they were bestowed with a new-born;
"The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wa’sallam, did the aqeeqah for al-Hasan and al-Husayn on the seventh day, and gave them names."   (as narrated by Hakim)
It is encouraged and desirable is to perform the sacrifice on the seventh day after the child is born although there is no harm in performing it earlier or later. As well as the sacrifice, the child’s head is shaved and a monetary donation, based on the weight of the hair (usually using the value of silver), is given as charity. To share their happiness and acknowledge the gift bestowed on them by Allah, subhanahu wa ta'āla, many parents opt to have Aqeeqah done in a country where the meat can be given to the poor.

Currently, Muslim Futures works in Cameroon and Afghanistan, to carry out Aqeeqah on behalf of parents, for £75, and the meat is promptly distributed to the poor and needy.

The Aqeeqah sacrifice will be carried out by our team as quickly as possible after receiving your donation and we can provide photo and / or video feedback if notified beforehand. Please ensure you put your request details in the Notes section during the donation checkout process.

Charity really does begin at home.
Feed the vulnerable and needy in the UK.

You can offer an animal sacrifice, a Qurbani in the UK. By doing so, you can help bring blessings and joy to those who are less fortunate, right here in our own communities. The current cost-of-living crisis is putting pressure on families all over the UK. Many are struggling to put food on the table to feed their children. Muslim Futures works closely with grassroots organisations, local authorities, and schools, to ensure we are reaching low-income families and disadvantaged individuals.

For only £245 Muslim Futures will arrange your Qurbani and provide high-quality fresh lamb to disadvantaged people in the United Kingdom, so that they know they are not forgotten at this time of celebration.

Revive the Sunnah.
Offer a Prophetic Qurbani.

Follow in the Prophet's, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam footsteps and offer Qurbani for yourself and on behalf of someone in need. In this way, you can donate your Qurbani the way our beloved Prophet Mohammad, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam would.

Donate one Qurbani for yourself and one for the less fortunate in our community who cannot afford to fulfil their own. Alternatively, you can offer a Qurbani for yourself and one on behalf of the Prophet Mohammad, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam, in celebration of his wonderful deeds and generous heart.

Muslim Futures ensures it is distributed where most needed.

The Sunnah of social consciousness and being aware of those who are less fortunate extended to all parts of our Prophet Mohammad’s, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam, way and lifestyle. He would spend his nights praying for his Ummah, his days inviting all to the truth of Allah, subhanahu wa ta’āla, and treating everyone with fairness and love. Especially, during the sacred days of Dhul-Hijjah, the Prophet Mohammad, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam, would partake in sacred acts of devotion and sacrifice.

Remembering and commemorating the sacrifice of the Prophet Ibrahim, alayhi as-salam, our Prophet, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam, would offer his Qurbani and then offer another on behalf of his Ummah and those that could not afford to do it themselves.

"The Prophet, sallallāhu 'alayhi wa’sallam, sacrificed for the one who could not sacrifice from his Ummah, one who bore witness to the Oneness of Allah and [his] Prophethood..."  (as narrated by Al-Tarbani)

This beautiful act of making an additional sacrifice for those who are unable to give for themselves is called a Prophetic Qurbani; not only a rewarding experience but a truly compassionate one as well.
