Eid ul Adha in Pakistan: Ruet-e-Hilal Committee to meet on Friday to sight Zil Hajj moon

With Pakistanis getting ready for Eid ul Adha by buying sacrificial animals, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will hold a meeting tomorrow (Friday) to sight the Zil Hajj moon, Radio Pakistan reported.

The state broadcaster reported that the meeting would be chaired by Chairman of Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad.

Muslims across the globe celebrate Eid ul Adha on the 10th of Zil Hajj.

Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz had told Geo News on Tuesday that the new moon, which will mark the beginning of the new Islamic month, would be born at exactly 5:38pm.

“There are strong chances of the moon being sighted on June 7 as by then, it will be of more than 26 hours,” he added.

With Eid ul Adha just around the corner, cattle markets have been set up in different areas for people to purchase cows, goats, sheep, or camels for sacrifice.

The management of the cattle market in Karachi has set up a facility in Taiser Town at Northern Bypass.

ATMs and temporary branches of major banks have also been set up so that people can easily withdraw money if they purchase an animal for sacrifice.
