All is set for celebrating Eidul Azha in Sukkur, Khairpur, Ghotki, Noshehroferoze, Shikarpur, Jacobabad, Kashmore- Kandhkot and other districts of the northern Sindh with religious fervour and enthusiasm on Monday.

Muslims are preparing to celebrate the annual festival of Eidul Azha or the Festival of Sacrifice, which marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and in commemoration of Prophet Abraham's readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to God. Sacrifice commonly known as 'Qurbani', means slaughter of a permissible animal generally goats, sheep, rams, cows and camels in the name of God on the 10th, 11th or 12th of the Islamic month of Zil Hijjah.

Mayor Sukkur Barrister Arslan Sheikh on Monday reviewed arrangements for pick up garbage from all streets and neighbourhoods in a timely manner and deliver it safely to the collection points on all days of Eidul Azha. Cleaning and sprinkling lime have been ensured, said Mayor Arslan.

There are large congregations to be held in Sukkur for Eid prayers. There are 1143 Masjid, 63 Imambargahs, 27 Eid congregations where the Eid prayers would be offered and 36 places where combined sacrifices of the animals would take place as well as 58 camps of hides collection throughout the region.
