Staff Reporter :
The holy Eid-ul-Azha, the second biggest religious festival of the Muslims, will be celebrated across the country on Monday with due solemnity, religious fervour and zeal.
On the occasion, the Muslims across the country will offer prayers in congregations and sacrifice animals in the name of Almighty Allah.
Special munajat will be held seeking divine blessings for peace, progress and prosperity of the country as well as welfare of the Muslim Ummah. 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).
President Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Leader of the Opposition in Parliament Begum Rawshan Ershad issued separate messages, greeting the Muslims in Bangladesh and all over the world on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
On the occasion, President Abdul Hamid will exchange greetings with the people of all strata of lives at the Bangabhaban while Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at the Gono Bhaban.
The main Eid congregation will be held at the National Eidgah in the capital at 8:00am. National Mosque Baitul Mukarram's Senior Pesh Imam Hafez Muhammad Mizanur Rahman will conduct the main Eid congregation.
Law enforcement agencies have ensured tight security measures in and around the main National Eidgah congregation.
This year, a total of 568 Eid congregations will be held in Dhaka under the two City Corporations.
Of them, 298 Eid congregations will be held under the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and the other 270 Eid congregations under the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).
A total of five Eid congregations will be held at the Baitul Mukarram. The first, second and third jamat will be held at 7am, 8am, and 9am, while the remaining two at 10am and 10:45am.
