The Mufti of Moscow denied rumors about celebrating Eid al-Adha at home


Mufti of Moscow Ildar Alyautdinov called fake the information that the capital authorities recommended that Muslims perform holiday prayers at home on the day of Eid al-Adha. According to him, the celebration will take place as usual. This year Eid al-Adha will be celebrated on April 10.

“The information that was yesterday is fake information that is aimed at inciting some kind of discord in our society, everything is as usual,” said Mr. Alyautdinov RBC.

Eid al-Fitr is an Islamic holiday celebrated to mark the end of fasting in the month of Ramadan. Celebrated on the first day of the month of Shawwal according to the Muslim calendar. On the day of the holiday, Muslims perform a festive ritual prayer, put on their best clothes, prepare traditional dishes, and after the holiday prayer they set tables, invite neighbors, relatives and friends to visit, and make return guest visits with gifts.

Today, April 4, the Moscow government held a meeting dedicated to the holiday. The mufti told RIA Novosti that the meeting participants called on believers to maintain strict order, listen to the demands of the police and volunteers, and not to take heavy or large bags and backpacks with them.

In the Moscow Department of National Policy stated agency that prayers in honor of Eid al-Adha will be held at six venues in the capital and 46 venues in the Moscow region, and there will also be an online broadcast of the celebration.

April 3 Telegram channel “Caution, news” allegedly published a letter from the capital’s department of national policy addressed to the prefects of Moscow. In the document, the department asks officials to bring information to Muslims about the restrictions in force in Moscow against the backdrop of Eid al-Fitr. In particular, “believers are recommended to perform Eid prayer at home.” The department asked to bring this data to Muslims through their employers and inform believers about online broadcasts of worship services. The department recommended paying special attention to migrants arriving from Central Asia, as follows from a letter published by the Telegram channel.
