Eid-El-Kabir: Sultan directs Muslims to look for Crescent of Dhul-Hijjah 1445 AH from Thursday

Alhaji Sa’advert Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-Basic, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), has directed the Muslim Ummah to look out for the crescent of Dhul-Hijjah 1445 AH from Thursday.

Abubakar made the decision in an announcement signed by Prof. Sambo Janaidu, the Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Non secular Affairs of the Sultanate Council, Sokoto, on Wednesday.

He said that “That is to tell the Muslim Ummah that Thursday, June 6, which is equal to the twenty ninth day of Dhul-Qidah 1445 AH, shall be the day to search for the brand new moon of Dhul-Hijjah 1445 AH.

“Muslims are, subsequently, requested to begin in search of the brand new moon of Dhul-Hijjah on Thursday and report its sighting to the closest District or Village Head for onward communication to the Sultan.”

The Sultan prayed to Allah to proceed to assist Muslims within the discharge of their spiritual duties.

Dhul-Hijjah, the twelfth and closing month within the Islamic calendar, is without doubt one of the 4 sacred months in Islam throughout which Muslims the world over carry out pilgrimage (Hajj) and have fun the Eid-El-Kabir pageant.

In the course of the month, Muslim pilgrims from around the globe congregate in Mecca to carry out Hajj, which begins on the eighth, and have fun Eid-El-Kabir from the tenth to the thirteenth of Dhul-Hijjah.

Eid el Kabir commemorates the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah’s command. Within the Islamic custom, simply as Ibrahim was about to hold out the sacrifice, Allah intervened and supplied an animal to be sacrificed as a substitute.

This occasion symbolises religion, devotion, and submission to the desire of Allah. Muslims have fun this pageant by slaughtering an animal, usually sheep, goat, or cow, and distributing the meat amongst household, associates, and people in want.
