Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The holy Eid-ul-Azha will be observed across the country on October 27, as the new moon of the Arabic month of Jilhajj was not sighted on Tuesday.
The National Moon Sighting Committee took the decision at a meeting after reviewing reports received from different parts of the country.
The meeting was held at the meeting room of Islamic Foundation at Baitul Muqarram National Mosque with Secretary of Religious Affairs Ministry Kazi Habibul Awal in the chair.
To commemorate this historic event, the Muslims from all over the world slaughter sacrificial animals.
They draw inspiration from the unique example of sacrifice as shown by two great prophets–Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and Hazrat Ismail (AS).
