Guwahati, 10th June: The Central Hilal Committee of Assam, led by President Maulana Sheikh Fakhruddin Ahmed Kasimi and General Secretary Alhaj Imdad Hussain, formally announces the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha across Assam on June 17, 2024, in alignment with the nationwide observance of the festival.

Eid-ul-Adha, commonly known as Bakra Eid, holds profound significance in Islam, symbolizing Prophet Ibrahim’s test of faith. The occasion involves special prayers at mosques and the traditional sacrifice of lambs and goats. Additionally, financially and physically capable Muslims are obliged to undertake the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

According to Islamic tradition, Eid al-Adha falls on the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijjah. Should the moon be sighted on June 6, signaling the beginning of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah on June 7, Arafah Day will be observed on June 15 (Dhu al-Hijjah 9), followed by Eid al-Adha on June 17 (Dhu al-Hijjah 10).

Arafah Day, occurring on the ninth day of Dhu al-Hijjah, marks the second day of the Hajj pilgrimage. Subsequently, Muslims worldwide partake in Eid al-Adha festivities, which include communal meals shared with family, friends, and those in need, embodying the essence of charity and community spirit during the festival.
