Moon Sighted in Saudi Arabia

PMD Predits Eid on 29th June
According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department, the first Zulhajj will be observed on June 20 (Tuesday) and Eidul Azha on June 29 (Thursday).
After the findings are submitted and the decision is made, the Ministry of Religious Affairs will issue an official notification.
Eidul Azha marks the memory of the Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) and his willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah. Muslims sacrifice animals every year, due to that reason, and it’s a religious obligation of every Muslim.
