The first congregation of Eid-ul-Adha was held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque.

On Monday (June 17) at 7 o'clock in the morning, two rakat wajib prayers were performed with the participation of thousands of devout Muslims.

Imam Hafez Mawlana Ehsanul Haque of Baitul Mukarram led the first congregation.

Later, a special munajat was offered seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and welfare of the people as well as the Muslim Ummah.

Imam Hafez Mawlana Ehsanul Haque said, Allah has ordered to perform various acts of worship for the Muslim Ummah. Eid-ul-Adha is one of them. On this day, the most beloved deed to Allah is the shedding of animal blood. But sacrifice should be done only for the purpose of getting the pleasure of Almighty Allah. If someone is slightly negligent in this regard, his sacrifice will not be accepted. Sacrifice cannot be done for the purpose of getting human glory.

He also said that everyone's intention should be purified before the sacrifice. Then Allah will write a reward for the sacrificer for every fur of the sacrificed animal.

However, four more Eid congregations are scheduled to be held at Baitul Mukarram Mosque. According to the Islamic Foundation, the second Eid-ul-Adha congregation at Baitul Mukarram Mosque held at 8 am, the third at 9 am, the fourth at 10 am and the fifth and last Eid congregation at 11:15 am.

The second Eid jamaat was held at 8am led by pesh imam hafez Mawlana Muhiuddin Kasem. Abdul Hadi

Mawlana Abu Saleh Patwari, Mufassir of the Islamic Foundation, lead the third congregation at 9 am. Mahtamim Mawlana Syed Wahiduzzaman of Mirpur Jamia Arabia lead the fourth congregation at 10 am.

Mufti of Islamic Foundation Mawlana Mohammad Abdullah lead the last congregation at 11:15 am.

However, if an imam is absent in any of the remaining 4 congregations, the Imam of High Court Mazar Mosque, Mawlana Ashraful Islam, will serve as an alternate Imam.

It should be noted that the second largest religious festival of the Muslims is being celebrated all over the country today in honor of sacrifice. Devout Muslims sacrifice animals like every other time in the hope of attaining the pleasure of Allah.
