The national moon-sighting committee held a meeting yesterday at the Islamic Foundation with Religious Affairs Minister and committee Chairman Principal Matiur Rahman in the chair.

The committee’s decision came after evaluating data and reports from all district administrations, offices of Islamic Foundation, Bangladesh Meteorological Department, and Space Research and Remote Sensing Organisation, said a press release.

The Eid-ul-Azha is celebrated on the 10th of Zilhajj month of the Hijri calendar as Hazrat Ibrahim (AS), on this day, some 4,500 years ago, offered to sacrifice his beloved son Hazrat Ismail (AS) who willingly submitted to the will of his father to please Allah. But the Almighty in His benign mercy spared Hazrat Ismail (AS) and instead sent a ram to be sacrificed.

To commemorate this historic event, the Muslims all over the world slaughter sacrificial animals and draw inspiration from the unique example of sacrifice to please Allah as shown by two great prophets — Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and Hazrat Ismail (AS).

On the occasion, the Muslims across the country will offer prayers in congregations and sacrifice animals in the name of Almighty Allah.

They will offer munajat seeking divine blessings for peace, progress, and prosperity of the country as well as the welfare of the Muslim Ummah.
