MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin greeted the country’s Muslims on a most important Muslim holiday - Eid ul Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), which marks end of pilgrimage to holy places, the Kremlin’s press service said on Saturday.
“For centuries, this holiday imbued with gracious and bright feelings, is bringing people closer together, favours establishment in the society of the ideals of goodness and mercy, promotes respect for religious beliefs and traditions,” the greeting reads.
“It is gratifying that the Muslim community in Russia is involved actively in the public life, develops extensive charitable, educational activities, pays permanent attention to strengthening family values, makes a significant contribution to maintenance of inter-religious and inter-ethnic accord,” the president said.
The Festival of Sacrifice is devoted to remembering prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son when God ordered him to.
