The Sultanate Council on Monday declared Tuesday, September 15 as the first day of the Muslim month of Dhul-Hajj.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Jamatu Nasril Islam (JNI) Secretary General, Dr Khalid Aliyu, in Kaduna.
Aliyu, in the statement said that, Thursday, September 24, will be marked as Eid-el-Kabir and urged the Muslim Ummah to disregard an earlier statement released by the JNI headquarters on the matter.
The sultanate had earlier in a statement on Sunday declared September 23 as Sallah Day.
The change follows Sunday’s announcement by the Saudi Arabia authorities that the new date for Arafat is September 23
