Eid: Zil-Haj Moon Sighted, Eid Al-Adha To Be Celebrated On August 22
KARACHI – Zil-Hajj moon has been sighted in Pakistan while Eid-ul-Azha will be celebrated on August 22 (Wednesday). 

The declaration was made after a gathering of the six-part advisory group of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee here on Sunday. The Committee met in Karachi tonight to sight the Zil-Hajj moon. Executive of the Committee Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman directed the gathering. 

Zonal Ruet-e-Hilal Committees additionally held separate gatherings to gather confirmation of sighting of the moon. 

Muslims observe Eid-ul-Azha on the tenth of Zil-Hajj, the most recent month of Islamic timetable. 

id-ul-Azha commemorates Prophet Ibraheem’s willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah, before Allah replaced the son with a ram to be sacrificed instead.

The result is a booming pre-holiday trade in goats, cows and sheep. In Pakistan alone, nearly 10 million animals, worth more than $3 billion, are slaughtered during the two days of Eid-ul-Azha, according to the Pakistan Tanners’ Association (PTA).

Eid-ul-Azha marks the end of an annual Hajj, or pilgrimage to Makkah, which is one of the five pillars of Islam, and should be undertaken by every Muslim who can afford to do so.

Saudi Arabia 


Muslims in Saudi Arabia will observe Eid-ul-Azha on August 21 after the moon was sighted in the Kingdom on Saturday. 

on August 10, The Supreme Court in Saudi Arabia solicited Muslims to locate the sickle from the long stretch of Zil-Hajj on Saturday evening. 

The Supreme Court approached whoever locates the sickle by the exposed eyes or through binoculars to answer to the closest court and enroll his declaration.
