Koperasi Agrotek Malaysian Bhd celebrate the the birth of your child

Aqiqah

O Allah, verily You have given us a son. You alone know what You have given and what has been granted, and (You alone know everything about) whatever You create. So accept (our offering offered) in accordance with Your command and the traditions of Your prophet and messenger (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children), and keep away the accursed Shaytan from us. This blood is pouring out for Your sake only (a.s.) there is no partner to share (it) with You, O my Allah, praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. O my Allah, this meat (instead of) his meat, this blood (instead of) his blood, these bones (instead of) his bones., these hair (instead of) his hair, this skin (instead of) his skin (are offered to You), so O my Allah, accept this (sacrifice) instead of the sacrifice of our child..

The birth of a baby is a wonderful time for all families. A time of celebration and faith, particularly in gratitude upon having a child that meets the sunnah of the Prophet.

However, In this fast paced, busy world we live, sometimes responsibilities as Muslims and parents can be overlooked. Especially in regard to Aqiqah, where it may be practically difficult to make sacrifice by slaughtering a live animal on the birth of a child.

According to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), performing Aqiqah and contributing its meat for charity, especially when it is enjoyed by our Muslim brotherhood of the poor and hungry, will be able to add another blessing and strengthen the family ties and affection among Muslims.

Koperasi Agrotek Malaysia Berhad’s Aqiqah program now enables our brothers and sisters to celebrate the birth of their children and share the joy with wider, more needy Muslim community.

Muslim consumers have given an increased attention to their foods particularly the need for them to be considered Barakah. It has long been the goal of the Malaysian Government to establish Malaysia as a global Halal hub for the promotion, distribution and production of Halal products and services to the Muslim countries all over the world. Koargo is committed to this goal, particularly in making Malaysia a global Halal hub in meat.

What is Aqiqah?

Aqiqah, is Islamic tradition of the sacrifice of a goat or sheep on the occasion of a child’s birth. Aqiqah is highly encouraged, and it is to be performed by the parents or the guardians of the child. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions used to perform Aqiqah when they were bestowed with a newborn.

Allah the almighty has bestowed us with this blessing in the form of the newborn child therefore by performing Aqiqah we are being thankful to Allah (the almighty) and seeking protection from him.

The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Two sheep which resemble each other are to be sacrificed for a boy and one for a girl." (Sunan Abu Dawood Book 15, No. 2830)

“A baby is being pledged for his Aqiqah, sacrifice is made for him on the seventh day, his head is shaved, and a name is given him". Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him)

It is accepted that if one cannot slaughter on the seventh day, Aqiqah can be performed on the fourteenth day or on the twenty-first day and so on. Aqiqah should be however conducted before the child reaches puberty

Aqiqah is a form of ibadah, blended with a sense of gratitude towards the Creator Allah. Aqiqah is an expression of graditude for the favour bestowed if the birth of a child.

This is why it is an accepted practice that meat of the Aqiqah is shared with the poor and needy. Other good intentions made include sadaqah which is equal to the weight of the child’s shaven hair in silver.

“The meat of Aqiqah should be divided into three shares, one share for the organizer of the Aqiqah, one for his relatives and one for miskīn. However this is preferential, not essential. If the organzier wants, he can cook the entire meat at his home or alternatively can also distribute it all to others” A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 20. Pp 584)

Aqiqah is a sign of good intention.

The importance of Co-Operative: A trusted partner

Since the cooperative movement was first introduced in Malaysia approximately eighty five years ago, there is no doubt that it has had a positive impact on Malaysia’s economic and social development. The characteristic of being community-centered and catering to those most vulnerable to economic vagaries has rendered cooperatives as valuable institutions in promoting agricultural development and trade, the creation of employment opportunities and in advancing the social and economic positions of societies in general. The Aqiqah program is important to Koagro for these reasons.
