Saudi Arabia has announced this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, known as big Sallah to be on August 21, following the sighting of Zul Hijjah moon today, Saturday evening.

According to a statement by the Saudi Ministry of Civil Service, Arafat Day will be a day before the Eid-el-Kabir, which is August 20.
The Arafat is the climax of the annual pilgrimage to which no fewer than three million Muslims across the world attend.
About 70,000 seats were allocated to Nigeria this year by the Saudi government, but indication is that the quarter could not be filled.
