Bishaw Ijtema ends with Akheri Munajat

Bangladeshi Muslim devotees attend the Akheri Munajat concluding prayers on the third day of Biswa Ijtema, the second largest Muslim congregation after the Hajj, at Tongi Railway station in Tongi, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

First phase of the 52nd Biswa Ijtema ended today with the offering of Akheri Munajat (concluding prayers).
Eight devotees died at the Ijtema ground from Thursday to early Sunday due to old-age complications and illness.
Some 6,887 overseas devotees have reached the Ijtema venue from several countries, including India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Panama, Egypt, Oman, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iran, Japan, Canada, Cambodia, Mozambique, Russia, the USA, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, Kenya and New Zealand.

Bishwa Ijtema is by far one of the most popular congregational gatherings of muslims. Bishwa Ijtema was held, with some speculating that this event started in 1946.Tablighi Jamaat of Bangladesh organizes it each year.

Muslim followers come to the gathering, located on the Turag River near Dakar, to receive blessings and interact with the throng of followers that descend on the Ijtema grounds. It is estimated that the number of attendees to the 2007 Bishwa Ijtema neared 3 million. It provides many with the opportunity to study the Qur’an and listen to various sermons. Attendees can use the three days of the Bishwa Ijtema to concentrate on their religion and explore aspects of it that they are not familiar with.
