Shura Council Advisory for Dhul-Hijjah/Eid al-Adha 2024/1445AH

The Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia has announced that Friday, June 7th, will mark the first day of Dhul Hijjah.  Therefore, the day of ‘Arafah will be on Saturday, June 15, and Eid al-Adha 1445AH will be on Sunday, June 16, 2024 .

We remind the community to start planning for the blessed first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, about which the Prophetic teaching states that “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” [Bukhari].

This includes fasting the day of ‘Arafah about which the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Fasting the day of `Arafah expiates the sins of two years: the past one and the coming one.” [Muslim].

Please see timely reminders from our Shura TV media channel from local and national religious leaders about the importance of this pillar of Islam. Commemorating the spirit of sacrifice and solidarity as shown by Prophets Mohammad and Ibrahim, (peace be upon them). You can also get ideas on how to maximize good deeds during this time and go Deep into Dhikr with Yaqeen Institute.

Additional details on timing and locations of Eid Prayer will be shared as they develop and are finalized Insha’Allah. 

May Allah, the Most Merciful, make us deserving recipients of His mercy in all our days and times and help us reap the rewards of divine opportunities.
