The holiday sermon of the Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin (Kurban Bayram), 06/11/2011






Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, the owner of Greatness, Power and Glory! Peace and greetings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallyalahu alyayhi wa salam), may Allah bless him and welcome), who was sent as a mercy for the worlds and became the last of the prophets and messengers of Allah, who fulfilled his mission, bringing us to the truth of Islam! Also, our greetings and prayers goes to his family and companions, and those who followed the path of truth with good deeds!

My dear brothers and sisters!

This morning, waking up at dawn, having made the morning prayer, reading "takbirat-tashrik", ready to go to the mosque to be on this blessed day of Kurban Bayram among the league of our fellow believers, we are turning faces toward the Kaaba praying to our Creator , Lord of the Worlds Allah ta'ala. And in those moments we feel a sense of togetherness and unity with those who at this hour is not far from the Holy Land – the reserved Haram Sharif mosque and those who are near the Kaaba, feeling the spiritual unity with the millions of pilgrims and those who are in their countries and make a festive prayer, glorifiing God and saying:"Allahu Akbar - Allah is the Lord - above all! There is no God but Him! Lord God - above all, and only true praise to Him”!

My dear fellows!

My dear fellow countrymen!

One of the main holidays of Islam - Eid al-Adha - Eid al Fitr - the Feast of Sacrifice has come.

I cordially welcome you with the traditional Muslim greeting:

Assalam wa wa rahmatullahi alyaykum barakatuhu!

Peace to you, Allah's mercy and His blessings!

Dear fellows - Muslims! Dear my fellow countrymen!

On the sacred for every Muslim of the world land in Saudi Arabia, where Hajj – the rituals of the Muslim pilgrimage are performed - gathered around three million pilgrims from all over the world. Among them about 23 thousand of our Russian pilgrims performed the Hajj. On this blessed day, we pray to Almighty Allah bless us all, accept the Hajj of pilgrims, who after Hajj are purified from sin, and become as sinless newborn babes, and pray that they with great joy at the accomplishment of Allah, came back in good health to their homeland. For good causes in the way of Allah, our Prophet, to the delight of the Ummah and pilgrims, said: "The reward for a great blissful pilgrimage can only be a paradise!"Taking this opportunity given by the Russian state television channel "Russia-1", I would like to convey warm greetings and congratulations on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, Kurban Bayram to all citizens of our country, citizens of the Commonwealth of Independent States, as well as everyone who has congratulated us, Russian Muslims.
