President to offer Eid prayers at Bangabhaban tomorrow

DHAKA, July 31, 2020 (BSS) – President M Abdul Hamid will offer his prayers of the holy Eid-ul-Azha, the second largest religious festival of the Muslims, along with his family members and some senior officials at Bangabhaban Durbar Hall tomorrow morning.

Against the backdrop of the ongoing global crisis due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the traditional Eid prayers with the spontaneous participation of people from all walks of life in capital’s National Eidgah Maidan has also been cancelled for tomorrow.

President’s press secretary Mohammad Joynal Abedin told BSS that the head of the state will say his Eid prayers with his family members and some senior officials at the Durbar Hall of Bangabhaban at 8:30 am.

“The Eid jamaat (congregation) will be held at 8:30 am. Pesh Imam of Bangabhaban Jame Mosque Mufti Maulana Saiful Kabir will conduct the Eid prayers,” he added.

A special munajat will be offered seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and welfare of the people as well as the Muslim Ummah.

Special doa will be offered seeking the eternal peace of the departed souls of those who died of COVID-19 diseases and also wishing for the early recovery of the coronavirus patients throughout the country as well as across the world.

After the prayers, there would be no exchange of Eid greetings in view of the current pandemic situation, the Bangabhaban spokesman added.
