Zil Hajj Moon Sighted in Pakistan, Eid ul Adha on 17th June 2024

ISLAMABAD, June 7, 2024 The Central Viewing of the Crescent Committee has officially announced the sighting of the Zil Hajj moon Sighted in Pakistan, marking the beginning of the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. As a result, Eid-ul-Azha will be celebrated on 17th June 2024 across the country.

The sighting of the Zil Hajj moon in Pakistan marks the beginning of the month of Zil Hajj in the Islamic calendar. It has been announced to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha on June 17 after the sighting of the moon. Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is an important Islamic festival commemorating the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God, before God called for the sacrifice. A ram has been provided.

Eid al-Adha is celebrated with many religious and cultural practices that highlight the essence of sacrifice, charity and community. Here are the key elements that make this festival deeply meaningful.

Qurbani: One of the central rituals of Eid al-Adha is the qurbani, or sacrifice of an animal such as a goat, sheep, cow or camel. This act symbolizes Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son and represents the act of giving up something precious in obedience to Allah. The meat of the sacrificial animal is divided into three parts: one-third for the family, one-third for relatives and friends, and one-third for the poor.

Eid al-Adha is a time for Muslims to engage in charitable activities. This includes giving money, food and other forms of assistance to the needy. The emphasis on charity ensures that even the less fortunate can participate in the festivities.
