Aqeeqah & Adaq
Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) has been a part of helping its donors celebrate the most joyous moments in their lives for 15 years and counting.
- Aqeeqah: Children are a blessing and they bring an indescribable happiness when they enter our lives. The birth of a child is a time to rejoice and give thanks to the Creator by sharing with the hungry and the destitute. 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.
- Adaq: Performing the sacrifice of adaq is a way to express gratitude to Allah (swt) for His blessings. An individual says the desired prayer to Him, making the intention that he or she will perform the sacrifice of an animal after the prayer has been answered.
