Dhaka, May 31 : Muslims across the country observed Jumatul Wida, the last Friday of Ramadan, with due religious zeal and reverence.
A large number of fasting devotees attended the Jum’a prayers at mosques across the country with special munajats seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of the country and the unity of the Muslim Ummah.
