Kazakhstan celebrates one of the main Muslim holidays - Kurban Ait, also known as the Eid Al-Adha. This year's celebration will last three days from September12 to 14. Traditionally, people generously share with all who are in need during these holy days. Also the Muslims are encouraged to forgive transgressions, show care and compassion during these days.

 

Rashid ABDUALIULY, NAIB-IMAM OF SADUAKAS KAZHY GYLMANI MOSQUE:

This is one of the most significant and important Muslim holidays. The word "Eid" means "approaching", "approximate" in Arabic. These days, Muslims around the world sacrifice animals to God, give the meat away to the poor and pray. Thus, they are close to Allah.

 

According to the canons of the religion’s laws, every Muslim must sacrifice an animal - a sheep, a bull, a cow or a camel on this day. Eight special places have been allocated for the ceremony in Astana. The meat should be divided into three parts: for oneself, for relatives and neighbors, and for the needy.

 

Duman IMASHEV, DIRECTOR OF MARKET:

Each animal passes the veterinary and sanitary inspections before it reaches the market. We have also created special collection points for donations to orphanages and disabled centers. People can hand over a third part of the meat of the sacrificial animal here.

 

More than a thousand servings of pilav, a few tons baursaks, samsa, kurt and other traditional dishes have been prepared in Pavlodar on Kurban Ait. The central place for celebration was a city park of culture and recreation. Tens of thousands of Pavlodar residents and guests gathered there. This year’s Kurban Ait celebration will feature a big concert, sports competitions, quizzes and competitions for children. Representatives of the regional branch of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan set their dastarkhans.

 

Tatyana KUZINA, CHAIRWOMAN, REGIONAL SLAVIC CULTURAL CENTER:

It is good to organize such grand celebration, so people could see how many educated people come to share joy and happiness that we live in peaceful, huge and great, saved by God, by Allah Kazakhstan.

 

 It is expected that people invite guests and visit relatives and friends on this holiday. Every believer should serve a meal in the house on this occasion.
