The holy Eid-ul-Azha, the second most important religious festival for Muslims, is being observed across the nation today with due solemnity and religious fervor.
The Eid-ul-Azha is observed on the 10th of Zilhajj month of the Hijri calendar as Hazrat Ibrahim (AS), on this day, some 4,500 years before, offered to sacrifice his favorite 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 celebrate this historic event, Muslims around the nation are offering prayers in congregations and sacrifice animals in the name of Almighty Allah. They offered prayer seeking divine blessings for peace, progress, and prosperity of the country as well as the welfare of the Muslim Ummah.
President of Bangladesh Mr. M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina published separate messages, greeting for the Muslims in Bangladesh and all over the world on the occasion of the Eid-ul-Azha.
Acknowledging the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world including Bangladesh, Muslims are set to celebrate the Eid-ul-Azha by following strict health rules.
The festival seemed very unlikely to resemble that of early years as many countries banned the traditional Eid congregations as part of anti-coronavirus measures.
Bangladesh authorities urged people to stay in their current abodes discouraging plans for larger family gatherings at their ancestral homes as part of the desperate measures to prevent COVID-19 spread.
