Jumatul Wida observed


Dhaka, May 31: Jumatul Wida, the last Juma prayers during the holy month of Ramadan, was observed across the country on Friday with due solemnity and religious fervour.

Muslim devotees attended the Juma prayers at different mosques, seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and unity of the Muslim Ummah.

The biggest Jumatul Wida congregation was held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the capital where thousands of devotees attended the Juma prayers.

Special arrangements were made to accommodate the devotees at mosques in different parts of the city.

The authorities at many places erected ‘shamianas’ (tents) outside the mosque buildings to create additional space for offering prayers.

Before the prayers, Khateebs and ulemas delivered sermons highlighting the significance of Jumatul Wida.
