Listen to article

Saturday, December 30, has been declared the official day for Muslims to celebrate this year's Eid-Ul-Adha festivities.

The Eid-Ul-Adha is celebrated by Muslims worldwide as a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismael for Allah.

Others celebrate Eid-Ul-Adha as it marks the end of the Pilgrimage or Hajj for the millions of Muslims who make the trip to Mecca each year.

A statement from the Office of the National Chief Imam jointly signed by the Chief Imam and Ameer and Missionary in charge of Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana said prayers would be offered in all regional and district capitals.

In Accra, prayers would be offered at the Independence Square, Ashongman, Burma Camp and other places within the Metropolis.
