Seasonal Programs & Aqeeqah

ZF Seasonal Programs and Aqeeqah give Muslims the opportunity to give to those in need during the most blessed times of the year as according to the Sunnah (Traditions) of the Prophet, peace be upon him.

The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the path of God is as the likeness of a grain that sprouts seven spikes.  In every spike, there are a hundred grains. Thus does God multiply reward for whomever he so wills. [Surah al-Baqarah: 261]

Aqeeqah is a gracious program by which new parents and family members can celebrate the miracle of birth while making charitable work one of the first actions done on the child’s behalf.
