State Minister for Religious Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah made the announcement after a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee at Islamic Foundations Baitul Mukarram office after Maghrib prayers. Muslims celebrate the Eid-ul-Azha on the 10th of Zilhaj to commemorate the true spirit of sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim.

On this day, some 4,000 years ago, Prophet Ibrahim had offered to sacrifice his son Ismail, who willingly submitted to the will of his father to please Allah. But the Almighty, in his benign mercy, accepted the sacrifice and spared Hazrat Ismail, sending a ram to be sacrificed instead.
