Reports indicate that after several consultations, Muslims in Zomba have resolved to pray Eid Adha on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, Malawi Muslims Official Website has learnt.
This is in contrast to the statement released by The National Ru’yatul Committee (NRHC) earlier on that Eid Adha will perform on Wednesday, October 16.
According to one of the organisers of Eid prayers Sheikh Saleem Mulosola, Muslims from different jamaat such as Bilal, ZODEC, Chinamwali have decided to pray on Tuesday saying that is the correct day.
“We always follow where there is haq (truth). Sheikhs and other Muslims here in Zomba did a research and found that the correct day to observe Eid Adha is on Tuesday,” he said.
The main prayers will be conducted at the Zomba High School Ground, according to Mulosola.
However, Nikah and other Islamic Functions (NIFA) have said the grouping will hold its prayers on Wednesday at the venue to be announced later.
