Pakistan will celebrate Eidul Azha on July 21 (Wednesday) as the Ruet-e-Hill committee could not sight the Zil Hajj moon Saturday.

This means that Zil Hajj will start on July 12, Monday.

The committee met today to sight the moon. According to astronomical parametres, there is no chance of sighting the new moon of Zilhaj, 1442 AH on the evening of July 10, 2021, said an earlier statement issued by the moon sighting committee. The “weather is expected to be fair/partly cloudy in most parts of the country”, it added.

Zil Hajj moon was not sighted in Saudi Arabia on Friday, Gulf News reported. Eidul Azha will be celebrated across the kingdom on July 20, 2021. The Hajj ritual – known as the Day of Arafat – will fall on July 19. The month of Zil Hajj will start in the kingdom on Sunday (July 11).

Eidul Azha is celebrated to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (AS).

In line with the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), Muslims across the world slaughter animals as a sacrifice for Allah. The meat of sacrificed animals is distributed among relatives and the poor.
