Nation to celebrate Eid-ul-Azha tomorrow with great religious fervor


The nation will celebrate Eid-ul-Azha tomorrow with great religious fervor to commemorate the supreme sacrifice of Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (AS).

The day will dawn with special prayers in mosques for the well-being of the Ummah and safety and security of the country.

Eid congregations would be held at mosques, Eidgahs and open places in all cities, towns, and villages across the country. Ulema and Khateeb would highlight the significance of the festival and philosophy of sacrifice.

In the federal capital, the main Eid congregation will be held at Faisal Mosque where Federal Ministers, politicians, and parliamentarians present in Islamabad, Muslim diplomats and notables would join thousands of faithful in prayers.

After offering Eid prayers, the faithful will slaughter their sacrificial animals, including cows, camels, goats, and sheep, in remembrance of Sunnat-e Ibrahimi.

The meat of sacrificed animals will be distributed among relatives and the poor to share Eid celebrations.

Federal and provincial governments have chalked out elaborate security arrangements across the country to ward off untoward incidents.

Civic authorities of different cities and towns have also made special arrangements for disposal of offal and other solid waste during three days of Eid.
