Major religious festivals in Bangladesh
Muslim Festivals Holidays 2022
Ramadan: Each year, corresponding with the ninth month of the lunar calendar, Muslims spend a month in daytime fasting. This observance is called Ramadan. From dawn to sunset during this month, Muslims abstain from food, liquids, smoking, and sex. This fast is an extremely important aspect of the Muslim faith: in fact, it is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
Laylat al-Qadr: Toward the end of Ramadan, Muslims observe the “Night of Power” in commemoration of the time when the first verses of the Qur’an were revealed to Muhammad.
Eid ul-Adha: At the end of the annual pilgrimage, Muslims celebrate the “Festival of Sacrifice.” It includes a ritual sacrifice of a sheep, camel, or goat, an action meant to commemorate the trials of the Prophet Abraham.
Eid ul-Fitr: At the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate the “Festival of Fast-Breaking.” On the day of Eid, fasting is prohibited. The end of Ramadan is generally celebrated by a ceremonial fast-breaking, as well as the performance of the Eid prayer in an open, outdoor area or mosque.
Ashura: 10 Muharram The Ashura marks the anniversary of the death of Husein, the grandson of Muhammad. Celebrated mainly by Shi’ite Muslims, the date is commemorated by fasting, blood donation, and performances.
Mawlid an-Nabi: 12 Rabia’ Awal Mawlid al-Nabim, celebrated on the 12th of Rabiulawal, marks the birth of Muhammad in A.D. 570. The holy day is celebrated in different ways by different Islamic sects. Some Muslims choose to commemorate Muhammad’s birth with gift-giving and feasts, while others condemn this behavior for being idolatrous.
Isra’ & Mi’raj: 27 Rajab: Some Muslims commemorate Muhammad’s journey from Mecca to Jerusalem, followed by his ascent to heaven and return to Mecca, on the two holy nights of Isra’ and Mi’raj. They celebrate this holiday by offering prayers.
