The biggest gathering of Muslims next to Hajj

Hajj is the biggest gathering of Muslim people from all over the world. It has a great significance in Islam. Aside from Hajj many other gatherings of Muslim people are held in different places. Among those(I said aside from Hajj) the biggest one is held in Bangladesh every year around January. It is called Bishwa Ijtema means World Congregation.

Every year around this time the Muslims engaged in dawah(invitation of Islam) came to Bangladesh to attend the congregation. I don't know the very details of it. I can tell that its a 3 days' long event. The last thing of the last day is the prayer(duwa) in which around 3 million people take part.

This year it will be on 25, 26 & 27 of current month. 27 is Sunday and we are hoping to get a holiday on that day as our office is near the place of Ijtema and all the nearby roads will be blocked totally for thousands of people. We will know about it tomorrow.
