Learn about Eid-ul-Adha 2020 in Pakistan and Eid-ul-Adha, one of the biggest events in Islam.
Eid-ul-Adha is being celebrated in Pakistan on August 1, 2020, after the announcement of Mufti Muneeb (Pakistan Chairman of Ruwit Hilal Committee). The government has declared three days as Eid holidays.
Islamic scholar Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman has urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to declare the three days of Eid-ul-Adha a public holiday. Addressing a press conference in Karachi on July 29, Mufti Muneeb said that Eid is traditionally celebrated for three days.
Last week, the federal government announced a three-day holiday from Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2, due to Eid al-Adha. According to the notification, the second day of Eid will be Sunday, the last holiday while the third day of Eid, Monday, has been declared as a working day.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, the religious scholar said that “there is no conflict between scholars and science” and that scholars have “scientific information”. He said that experts from the Pakistan Meteorological Department were part of the decision during the sighting of the moon.
Why do Muslims celebrate it?
Eid-ul-Adha, an important Muslim holiday in the Islamic calendar, is the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. In the recitation of the Qur’an, Abraham, the “Prophet of God”, appeared in a dream and ordered him to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience.
Muslims believe that when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, God stopped his hand and replaced him with a sheep. Stories are also told in the Torah.
To commemorate God’s Abrahamic test, many Muslim families slaughtered an animal, often through their local butcher, and distribute the meat to families, neighbors, and the poor.
It is a time of celebration when families gather to eat, meet relatives and friends, and give children money and new clothes. It is also the time when families visit the graves of their loved ones and donate to the poor.
How is it celebrating?
The day begins with morning prayer. The festivities continue with friends and family meeting, exchanging gifts and invitations. But this year, the government is forcing people to follow the SOP during Eid because of Coyote 19.
Eid Mubarak and Eid Saeed are the usual congratulatory celebrations on the occasion of offering good wishes.
Its duration and location?
The four-day religious holiday begins on the third day of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah. All Muslims who are physically and financially capable need to perform it once in a lifetime, some saving their entire lives. Traveled for
Because the timing of the festival depends on the sighting of the new moon, countries around the world sometimes celebrate it on different days, although most follow the leader of Saudi Arabia because it is the host of the Hajj.
