The first phase of the three-day Biswa Ijtema ends with akheri munajat today, Sunday.
Hafez Mohammad Zubayer, the Imam of Kakrail Mosque in Dhaka, conducted the Akheri Munajat that started at 11:00am, said the Ijtema organisers.
Thousands of devotees, both from home and abroad, have attended the congregation. Some 4,473 foreign devotees from 88 countries have joined the first phase of the Ijtema.
The second phase of Ijtema will be held on 19-21 January.
Tablighi Jamaat has been organising the Ijtema on the bank of Turag river since 1967. The Ijtema is being held in two phases from 2011 to ease the accommodation crisis.
