Muslims across the country observed Jumatul Wida, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, with due religious solemnity and reverence.

A large number of fasting devotees attended the Jum’a prayers at different mosques with special munajats seeking divine blessings to get rid of coronavirus.

They also prayed for peace and progress of the country and the unity of humankind.

Jumatul Wida has a special importance as it is a prelude to the departure of the Ramadan.

It brings a duel feeling of both joy and sorrow. The joy is for end of wait for the Eid-ul-Fitr and the sorrow is for paying farewell to the holy month of Ramadan.

The biggest congregation on the occasion was held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the capital.

Special arrangements were made to accommodate the extraordinary surge of the faithful in all mosques in various parts of the city.

During the Jum’a prayers, imams and khateebs delivered sermons on the importance of Ramadan, Eitekaf, Eid-ul-Fitr and other religious issues.

They also urged the devotees to follow health guidelines to remain safe during the pandemic.
