Sultan Declares July 9 Eid al-Adha

Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto, has declared July 9 as Eid al-Adha.

Eid al-Adha, also known as sallah, features the slaughtering of ram as a practice among the Muslim faithful, during the period known as the “festival of sacrifice”.

Eid al-Adha commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s readiness to sacrifice his son in order to demonstrate his dedication to God.

The celebration is the second significant religious festival in Islam, with the first being Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.

According to a statement issued on Wednesday evening by the National Moonsighting Committee, the sultan urged Muslims to intensify prayers during the period.

“Eidul Adha will be on Saturday, 10th Zul-Hijjah 1443H (9th July 2022) In Sha Allah,” the statement reads.
