Sultan announces Oct. 15 as Eid-el-Kabir

THE  Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, has announced Tuesday October 15 as Eid-el-Kabir.

A statement issued in Sokoto by Prof. Sambo Wali, the Chairman of Sokoto Sultanate Advisory Committee on Religious Affairs, said this followed the sighting of the crescent from across the country on Saturday.

“This is sequel to the declaration of Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, as the first day of Zul-Hijja, 1434 AH, by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III.
“The sultanate advisory committee on religious affairs at its meeting on Saturday, Oct. 5, received reports from various moon sighting committees across the country confirming the sighting of the new Moon of Zul-Hijja,1434 AH, on Saturday, which was the 29th day of ZulKi’ida,1434 AH,’’ the statement said.

NAN reports that Eid-el-Kabir is celebrated world wide on the 10th of Zul-Hijja, the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, and is marked by the slaughtering of ram after a special morning prayer.

It comes a day after pilgrims from across the globe converge on mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for the annual Hajj.
