The concluding prayer (Akheri Munajat) of the second phase of three-day Biswa Ijtema, the second largest Muslim congregation after the Hajj, began on the banks of Turag River at Tongi in Gazipur on Sunday morning.
Senior most Imam (Pesh Imam) of Kakrail Jame Mosque Mawlana Md Jubaer is conducting the concluding prayer seeking peace, happiness and wellbeing of the Muslim Ummah.
The prayer began at about 10:20am.
Earlier, the Ijtema formally began with ‘ambayan’ (general sermon) after Fazr prayers at dawn on Friday amid tight security.
Tablig Jamaat has been organizing the Biswa Ijtema on the bank of Turag River since 1967. Now Ijtema is being held in two phases since 2011 to ease the accommodation problem, an organizer said.
