Muslims To Celebrate Eid-El Kabir On Friday 31st July 2020 - Saudi Authorities

Authorities in Saudi Arabia have declared Wednesday as the first day of the month of Dhul Hijjah, as the month of Dhul Ƙidah will make 30 days on Tuesday.

BBC hausa reported that "Tuesday 21 July 2020 Zul-Kida will make 30 days , so on Thursday July 30 it will be the Day of Arafa," according to a statement from Haramain Sharifain.

The statement added that the Eid Al-kabir will be held on Friday, July 31, "making a it an added bonus to Muslims, because there will be a Friday and Eid sermon".

Ed-el-kabir (the greater Eid) also called Eid al-Adha is one of the two most important Islamic festivals, Eid al-Adha begins on the 10th day of Dhu'l-Hijja, the last month of the Islamic calendar.

Lasting for three days, it occurs at the conclusion of the annual Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca. Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, not simply those undertaking the hajj, which for most Muslims is a once-a-lifetime occurrence.

Eid Al-Adha commemorates Prophet Abraham's willingness to obey Almighty Allah, when he envisioned that he was to sacrifice his son. Muslims observe this day by slaughtering an animal (usually a ram ) and then offering much of its meat in charity to poor people.

The sacrifice symbolizes obedience to Allah and its distribution to others is an expression of generosity in Islam.
